I recently received a demo pair of the new SX skates from Seba and I have been enjoying them very much. Thanks to Danny Beer for making this video and thanks to Seba for making amazing skates. The skate will be available at Shop-Task before Christmas, so start saving, they are expensive :)
One of the greatest things about traveling as a skater is the fact that I can bring my skates wherever I go. Even if I don't end up using them very much, it's always nice to know that they are there just in case I find that irresistible spot. The problem nowadays is deciding which set up to bring when I go away.
Shop Task's own Taylor Ritchie just put together this really fun edit of some of his skating that was captured this summer. Taylor has always had a great eye for finding street spots. His unique perspective on skating and the skills to back up his ideas makes every session with him interesting. Your never quite sure what tricks Taylor will have up his sleeves, his mastery of cess slides, illusion spins and everything in between makes him stand out from your run of the mill skater
Who would have thought that a city that never sleeps, notorious for its crazy traffic and upfront attitudes, would be so accepting of Rollerblading? Before I go any further I'd like to clarify that by 'accepting' I don't mean to say that the city has gone out of its way to accommodate skaters. In reality the number of paths and traditional inline friendly venues are few and far between. With skate specific venues not being a priority one really only has one option when skating in New York, which is to take to the streets.
Any seasoned Canadian skater knows all too well just how quickly a summer spent skating all day and night turns into getting home from work and wishing you were able to skate.
Whether your problem is that the indoor park near you was designed as a day care first and skate park second or that your favorite trail is no longer lit at night, we feel your pain. In these situations its really up to you to show your true Canadian spirit and brave the elements...
