After suffering in the frigid 30′s of NYC temperature for the past month a break finally came in the weather and the mercury went up to a nice 50 degrees. With the blue skies penetrating the pillows of clouds and the sun shining down from the negative spaces my son and I took a trip to the city to meet up with some friends to defrost our wheels. Here are a few random pics and distracting captions from our day.

After a borough to borough spot change, a tight knit comp info secrecy and criticism for holding a street comp in a skate park, the 2nd Annual NYC Street Invitational went down. Needless to say that it was an amazing event with ALOT of bladers coming out to support what we all love to do. Aside from catching up with many old faces in the crowd I managed to snag a bunch of random pics with my fogged lense LB-CAM aka iPod Touch. I apologize in advance for my pics being shittier than usual but take from it the ambience of a great time in NYC rollerblading.
In celebration of the life of Brian “Cozmik” Scott, NYC bladers united as one for a session in honor of our fallen brother. Many bladers showed up, traded great stories about Cozmik and had an amazing session. Many thanks to IRollNY, Flatlines Skateshop, Rollerwarehouse & Tri-State Skate for providing prizes to those blading hard for this memorial event. Here are some random pics that I snapped during the day…enjoy!
I woke up to a beautiful NYC day filled with sunshine, light clouds and most importantly no humidity! So, once my son woke up I took him out for a day of play with his skates. We ended up going to Coleman Skatepark and here are a baker’s dozen worth of pics chronicling our day.
Just my luck, when I finally head down to the newly built Coleman Skatepark to see what all the hype is all about there happens to be a full-on skateboard competition going down. This can only happen to me! Well, to not to waste a moment I decided to take a few pics of some of the obstacles that look fun to skate. Maybe next time LES! Read more »
A day change, a MIA Jon Morciglio, multiple rain showers, Parks Department drama, complaining bladers and spot changes could not hold us down. The “King Of Queens” Comp still went down and produced blading that will be talked about for a very long time. Here are some random pics I managed to snap in between co-judging the comp.
On Saturday, March 24th 2012 ShutupandSKATE took a fantastic voyage from Brooklyn to Maloof to support DaXsLIdE Productions & the Shop “N” Swap kickoff event/session for the new season in NYC blading. There are about a dozen pics to peruse through including cameos by NYC blading legend Joe Dedentro and Maloof’s infamous empanada man who even sells loosies…now he is the epitome of a hustler!
Hurricane Irene pushed The 2011 Last Man Standing Comp back 1 week but she couldn’t wash away the hearts of those who attended to show their support for NYC blading. After the last drops of sweat dryed up it was a top 3 that was deserving of the positions and a top 3 whose names deserved to be on top for the blading they displayed throughout the day. Here are pics that I managed to capture in between working on background things to keep things on schedule and organized. Enjoy and take from these pictures a story from beginning to end.
