A wet week in Lisbon

So five of us went to Lisbon. We found mostly cobbles and rain. It was a great week and we did find some spots to skate. Here’s a glimpse of what happened when the sun came out (or went down).

Oh, and yes, there will be an edit. What did you expect? It has however been delayed due to technical (if you can call a Mac technical) issues. It’s turn up at some point though. It’s on rollerblader time. When it’s ready…

Laced 2015 – Afterparty photos

OK, it took a while. A few things got in the way but they are now here. Standard japes and shenanigans that you’d expect from an international band of rollerblading hooligans. Friends, beers and a pool table, what more could you want?

Laced 2015 Skating Photos

Busy day. Some amazing skating and a great atmosphere. Here’s my shots from the event:

Pre-Laced 2015 Friday Night Photos

Tripping over to Rampworx after work on a Friday night, these are just a few shots I picked off from the Pre-Laced session. Just an open session in the park that a number of visiting skaters were using to warm up and get a feel for the park ready for the main event.

Vice Aus – Rolling in the 2000’s

Vice_LogoVice Media are not generally known to be open minded toward rollerblading but it seems that in Australia things may be different. As someone who has been skating from the early 90’s I have to say that a recent article published on Vice Australia is pretty much spot on. The views of a rollerblader without any negative dogma. Even going to the level of calling out the skateboard industry for their unnecessary and cynical division of the sports.

Get over there and read. I definitely support this attitude towards our sport and will be keeping an eye on the Australian section of Vice from now on and hope that this trends over to the main Vice site. No breath will be held in the meantime though…

Winterclash 2015 Saturday Photos

Still working through all of the photos I have amassed at the end of last month. I had also forgotten that I got shots from three days at Area 51, not just the two of Winterclash so the third instalment of the Dutch trilogy will be coming soon(ish). For now though, the second day of skating in Eindhoven for Winterclash 2015.

Winterclash 2015 Friday Photos

Slowly working through the hundreds of photos I took over the past two weekends. Here’s the first batch done – Friday session at Area 51 for Winterclash 2015. Working through these I realised a couple of things. First I don’t like skaters who wear all black. You make my life difficult. Second I spend far too much time watching the girls skate.
