March 30, 2010

ONE Magazine has featured a new Blade Life featuring photos of the Tri-State area taken by Sam DeAngelis. Read the full story and see all the photos on the ONE Magazine site. “It’s the first weekend of spring and everyone is ready to skate. We tried to keep sessions tight, in order to avoid the possibility of getting thrown out of spots, but that was quick to change. Skaters from all over the East Coast came out to skate the Tri-State area which consists of New Jersey, New York, and Connecticut. These skaters include world-renowned Thumper Nagasako, REMZ flow and Tri-State Skate rider Tim Franken, Razors flow Joey Zitelli, Con.Artist Brand and Scribe Ind. owner Daniel Fabiano, and many more. The weekend was nothing short of amazing, and I was lucky enough to capture everything on my Nikon D60” – Sam DeAngelis.

New Skate Plaza in Queens, NY

March 30, 2010

On the other side of the spectrum of the extreme/alt/action sports world it seems as if a new skate plaza will be built in Queens, NY for a skateboarding contest taking place on June 5-6 which will then be donated to our city to enjoy. The 16,000-square-foot skate plaza will be built in the Flushing Meadows area of Queens, home of the world famous Globe skate spot, featuring obstacles inspired by real NYC skate spots. You can see the notes on the above image of the recreated spots. You can get more information on the plaza here.

On a related note, Jon “Jlyn” Ortiz is already placing bets for someone to finish the black rail that goes half way around the plaza. “…50 cash if you do a simple groove trick…100 if u do a simple soul trick….and 150 cash out my pocket if u savannah that b*tch! And I want PROOF!” – Jon Ortiz.
