The edit includes Angelo Ferrer, Arismendy Canela, Dave Lang, Guillaume Latrompette, James Perez, Jordan Baez, Ludovic Bruggeman, and Maxime Kind.

A Chosen Few held their first online contest where a skater had to do ten different tricks in one line on a mini ramp, bowl or something similar and Grant Hazelton from Rochester, NY entered and won fourth place in the contest. Congrats to Grant and check out his entry up top. “Grant’s entry had the best start and finish. He launched into his first grind and finished great….awesome entry and very nice full savy with a nice ninja whip to it” – Quinn Feldman.
Psyko Clothing has been racking up a sick team including Damian Wilson and Franky Morales and now a sick design team including Jeremy Beightol (Kaspa Clothing) and Robert Lievanos the man who’s responsible for pretty much any good design in rollerblading. “Psyko has been through a lot of changes over the past year. It feels like we have finally found our own style and aesthetic. We’ve always been a dark, aggressive graphic company. But now we happen to have the great talents of Jeremy Beightol. He is a great, and really talented artist, and the coolest dude on the planet! Combine that with Robert Lievanos, and myself, and the brand has become a force to be reckoned with. A lot of effort and thought goes into the graphics at psyko. All our graphics are hand drawn, then vectored, we do not use any clip art. We do use inspiration. Join or die” – Josh Diaz.

Josh Diaz of Psyko Clothing will also be at tomorrow’s Lets Roll NY session selling the “We eat your young” Psyko tee on sale for $13. Support NYC based companies and get yourself a tee!
The Art of Rolling posted an edit from the new Hudson River/Pier 62 skatepark with an official word from the owner of the new skatepark. If you want to keep the park open from 9:00AM till dusk without any supervision then basically, wear your helmet!
“It’s incredibly important that we educate the skate community in that the helmet rule at the new Pier 62 Skatepark is mandatory and necessary. As we discussed, we really want the current set-up of the skatepark to work as an unsupervised park so that it can remain open for greater hours of the day — and months of the year. Ensuring that all participants follow the Park Rules is essential to making that happen. I fear that if the rules are not followed and we start to see more incidents, accidents or people not following the rules — mainly the “Helmets Are Required at All Times” rule — the staff here may want to revert back to a supervised facility, which will then, in turn, restrict the hours in which it is open” – Pier 62.
