I woke up early this morning to volunteer my manpower to Tim Franken and the Lux Armor Crew for The Blading Cup Fundraiser that they put together with Themgoods. Hours before the event we worked on the huge quarter pipe as well as other obstacles which came out even better than I imagined courtesy of Chris Calkins. When I left JJ was closing in rapidly on $1,000 so it is safe to say that the event was a success. Here are some photos from the LB-CAM of the pre-event setup. We put in work!

Went out to Granada Beach earlier today with Joey Barbera to show support for the local blading scene and of course to show our love for Long Beach. I couldn’t stay long but I snagged a few pics while everything was getting started. Enjoy and ShutupandSKATE will see all of you at the next event!
Rip N Roast 2014 brought together bladers from all over Cali and delivered smiles amongst strangers, laughter amongst comrades and blading amongst family. Chef Obedoza deserves accolades for manning the grill on his day off and feeding the masses of hungry skaters. He cooked up the beef burgers, hot dogs and veggie burgers with a smile. Kudos to the CHEF! Many faces old and new came out to blade and catch up with friends as well as support the blading scene. With the beautiful Cali sun out in full force and a crisp breeze to follow made for a perfect day of blading.
I finally attended my 1st Blading Cup and it was a memorable event. The obstacles screamed Pro Status with some really original designs created by unique minds. The Bladers that competed stepped their game up too. I’m surprised that I still have my voice from vocally supporting my fellow Bladers in their amazing trickery. But, in the end another great event for rollerblading that brought us all together went down and I hope you enjoy some of the random pics that I managed to catch while walking around the event.
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!
