Create Originals X Lets Roll NY Session Wrap Up

Sunday’s LRNY Bronx session was more of a flash back then a normal meet up. Names like Brian Lewis, Hakeem Jimoh, Joe Dedentro and the usual Victor Callender and Jon Ortiz were all in attendance. It’s really good for any person to know their history but to be in the presence of people who pioneered your sport is something truly great. The session started slowly with people arriving with their sun glasses on, recuperating from the Saturday night hang over, and the Create Originals crew, Brian Lewis and Hakeem Jimoh, managed to be the early birds of the day coming all the way from Boston.

Brian and Hakeem had all of the CO products (frames, inserts, and shirts) for display and for sale during the session where they hooked up a few of the NYC locals with their products.

For the lucky few that bought/received the frames they also got a personally hand signed box from co-owner Billy O’Neil. Brian Lewis went on to say that Fish actually signed the first 600 boxes. The session started heating up as Dave Lang laced a royale to truspin topsoul revert 360 out on the Hunts Point Ave rail. Greg Sturino and Pat Bernet also laced a few rail to wall tap variations.

As more people arrived, Queens legend Joe Dedentro came out and joined in on the session and caught up with all the older bladers. Before the session though, I texted Victor Callender asking if he had any spare wheels and Vic ended up bringing a plastic bag filled with wheels that belong in a blading museum.

Names like Champion Baumstimler, Hyper, Medium, FR, and Kryptonics were all before me…in a plastic shopping bag. We then moved on to the second and third spot where the Create Originals best trick contest went down.

Edgar Rivera and Greg Sturino went head to head in the best trick battle with a few others attempting the Kink ledge. Edgar laced a few technical rail to ledge lines while Greg was focusing on clearing the entire ledge. Greg came out as the crowd’s favorite when he laced a switch 270 back royale winning him a brand new pair of Create Original Frames, an OG shirt, and Wheels In Motion bearings.

Speaking of Wheels In Motion, Victor Callender, also recieved a Create Originals package including the CO frames, decals, and shirts. The session continued on as late local arrivals came through but I started the almost 2 hour journey home back to Brooklyn.
