Visiting the world oldest still running skatepark: KONA! Was lucky enough to spend Christmas and new year’s with my family in Florida. I could finally try to strap my skates back on and go for the first session after my surgery which was 9 weeks ago. I used this chance of being near by and visit this historical place. Still long way to go to be fully back in full power but I’m so happy to feel skates under my feet. Hope you enjoy! - Nils Jansons.
Visit Konaskatepark.com Kona will celebrate his 45th birthday in 2022, and has been recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s oldest surviving skatepark.
I’m no longer a student, I’m 40 and I actually enjoy work. At the moment we are in our 6th lockdown in Melbourne and I have to say that it is starting to get tough. I have my morning routine of exercise and caffeine but the one thing that keeps me motivated, the one thing that has kept me positive is this, welcome to my world: Inline Skating. - Joe Stuart.

The Playa crew takes us on an adventure exploring the Mayan underworld and free diving shenanigans. Then we head to the Hard Rock hotel to take a tour around the Woodward Rivera Maya skate facility and Rorro sends some solid back flops for yall! Haha enjoy. - Joe Atkinson.
My name is Cj Wellsmore, I am a 3x World Champion, professional inline skater from Australia. Since the pandemic, all blading competitions and my travels have come to a halt.
That was until I set off on my #DoTheThing Diaries (Down Under) tour and YouTube series (playlist on Youtube). Hitting all the iconic skate parks and mega ramps bringing skaters, mates and the community back together and loving everything I stumble across, whilst getting lost in a good way.
Two months in, my Straya AF van life YouTube series has collectively had over 70k views with new vlogs coming in hot every week. […] More infos and competition on Patreon.
It has been a while but here’s an update… I’m currently based in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. We are living a crazy life right now so I thought It’d be rude not to share it with yall :)
Stay tuned as the crew witnesses some incredible feats of nature, Caribbean wildlife and the most beautiful beaches Rivera Maya has to offer… We also stop by to blade with the homies at the Nohoch Skate School in Puerto Aventuras. Like & Sub much love! - Joe Atkinson.
