Since the time Damon Franklin and I began drafting up this interview late last year things have changed for the better. He went from Xsjado to USD…he just dropped a great edit with Erick Rodriguez showcasing his street skills…and he is traveling much more to blade as much as possible thus increasing his exposure. Instead of scrapping the interview and starting over we decided to keep some of the old and mix it with the new. The result is a look into the mind of a young blader with a hunger for progression.

In a blading world that is filling up rapidly with VOD sections there is a hidden gem that recently dropped with a “FREE” to view price tag that is putting others to shame. Jeremy Soderburg & Gregory Preston share with you their visual gift comprised of a passion for the sport that is refreshing as well as inspiring. “Master Splinter” is the title and there is enough Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle action in here to satisfy the little kid in all of our souls. I dare you to watch this and not be motivated to go out and shred outside of your comfort zone. Let’s dig in!

Mean mugging the camera for no reason while lending out a helping hand to my brothers at Lux Armor getting an early start on The Blading Cup ramps. And yes that’s Miguel Ramos chillin’ in the background.

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!

Joe Schaefer’s company Beyond The Ledge Skate Wax is definitely “Not Your Mother’s Candles”. Joe is a man with a game plan that is slowly unfolding before our very eyes. And to tell you the truth…it looks really good. I learned a lot about this NYC based company during this interview and I’m proud to share this Company Spotlight with all of you.
