Damn, this website was dealt a bad hand. In the beginning, it caused some weird drama (that was, like this site itself, pointless).. then it lacked content to a totally predictable degree. Then, at some point, it got hacked/attacked/maybe-it-just-broke, but by that point, no one really cared.
TIME MACHINE INTO THE NOW: all it took to get back up and running was a long search for login credentials, and a few clicks. The boulder was rolled away and the shroud of.. nevermind </biblejoke>.
There is a sliver of hope that this site could become something more than just a handful of old edits. STAY TUNED AND CHECK BACK ALL THE TIME.
(peace to Steinbeck)
It was waaaaaaay too hot out to be skating, but we all did it anyway. Many thanks to Roland for putting it all together, and everyone else that braved the heat that day. Good times!
First up we have Li’l Geoff Phillip, who many remember from his stint living out in the westside burbs, is back from injury and getting his skate on. Fresh after murdering the mile high battle, we get the Scumpire ‘Confessions of a Tin Man.. Geoff Phillip’ profile. Fuck yeah li’l Geoff!
Next up our neighbors up north Seattle Skaters have dropped a new edit with clips of Dustin Jamieson, Aaron Feinberg, and of course a whole host of the kids on the scene up there. This edit is quality.

Found this sitting on a hard drive. Filmed over a weekend by Dave Barnes in the Portland area circa 2004. Rollerbladers are Ross Kuhn, Mick Ollison, Adam Green, Dast, Andrew Pham, and I think Micheal Warner is in the Adidas ledges section. Can’t tell.
Beer. BBQ. Blading. Bootnany.

The Xsjado guys recently made a trip up to Portland to film for an upcoming DVD. They’ve posted some pictures from their trip up on their blog, it looks like they skated some classic Portland area spots including Lincoln & MHS. You can see more photos from their trip posted here and here.
Roland’s second annual summer competition. This one is definitely going to be bigger and badder than the last. Lots of good prizes from a strong list of sponsors. Only $5 to enter, you have no excuse!
Adam Johnson is the hardest working filmmaker in rollerblading. Hands down. Constantly traveling the country with a van full of bladers filming the best deals at the most unique spots. Recently that van rolled through Portland carrying the likes of Chris Farmer, Micheal Garlinghouse, B. Free, Adam Exline, and KC Roche to hit some skatespots & strip clubs.

During their stay, bones were broke, love was found, and most importantly, deals were had. AJ has been keeping the kickstarter page updated and has posted a couple edits already, both featuring some spots in the Portland area from their trip.
