New York Skate Series: EDS Street Session

May 31, 2016

nysseds

This memorial day weekend the New York Skate Series teamed up with I Roll NY in skating for Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and a young blader, Steven White, who has EDS. We hosted an all day session sponsored by Rollerblade who was kind enough to provide a free skate voucher which local blader Malik Ashby won and in his support for EDS, gave to Steven to encourage him to stay strong and keep blading. Featuring skating from Zach Cramer, Pablo Munoz, Adonis Taylor, Joey Lunger, Andy Bodnar, and Tadd Labozzetta. Get more information on EDS and Steven’s story below.

Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) is a collection of heritable connective tissue disorders. We had the pleasure of meeting an 8 year-old named Steven White who has EDS and his dedicated mother, Yoly Ym, at our first event of the 2016 season. It’s awe inspiring to watch Steven skate, knowing that when the skates come off, he wears leg braces and sometimes uses a wheel chair. Steven is able to rollerblade, because his skates provide him with support, stability, and freedom that does not exist with other alternative sports or with most sports for that matter.

Why Zebra Stripes?
Doctors are taught the phrase “When you hear the sound of hooves, think horses, not zebras”. In medicine, “zebra” is used for a rare disease or condition. Doctors often assume that the simplest explanation is correct to avoid misdiagnosis with rare illnesses. But many medical professionals forget that “zebras” DO exist and so getting a diagnosis and treatment is more difficult for rare conditions. EDS is a rare condition and those with it are known as medical zebras.

The New York Skate Series and I Roll NY are hosting a street session this memorial day weekend for a great cause. This Saturday we’re asking you to join us in skating for Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and a young blader by the name of Steven White who suffers from the syndrome. Steven participated in the last NYSS competition and showed us his love and dedication to blading and we wanted to show him love back. This will be an all day session with a chance to win a free pair of Rollerblade brand skates. Check out all the info on the flyer above.

Butter TV Montre Livingston Behind The Scenes

May 10, 2016

Before Thanksgiving and immediately after he just finished touring with Vibralux for his Trail of beers VOD, I reached out to Montre to see if he was open to fly up for a quick weekend here in NYC–Queens specifically–to blade, chill, and drink some beers. He took me up on that offer and showed up that same weekend.

Now, the closest I’ve ever got to him in person was watching him tear it up live at the NYC Invite so I had no idea what to expect but as soon as I picked him up from Laguardia Airport he was as cool as anyone can get. Add a 12-pack of Pabst in the mix and you can say we covered a lot on life that night.

This section takes place over a short winter weekend where sunlight does not last very long but all of us involved still enjoyed a good amount of blading, drinking, thai food, and good vibes.
