Be-Mag Up And Comers: Sean Grossman

January 22, 2013

“New York City and it’s surrounding areas have always been a breeding grounds for incredible rollerblading talent. It’s arguable that it could be one of the best scenes in the world. In recent years as big name talent has left the area for greener pastures and different opportunities, a new breed of Tri State talent has been getting more shine. The first person that always immediately comes to my mind when I think of New York and blading these past three years is Sean Grossman. Between countless edits of himself and others, his online video ‘Peep Game’, and his upcoming video ‘Big Apple Blade’, Sean has single handedly put himself at the forefront of New York City rollerblading media. I have loved watching Sean’s progression the past few years, and couldn’t be prouder to present to you supreme connoisseur, Long Island resident, style buff, and my very good friend, Sean Grossman” – Stefan Brandow.

Okay, so how old are you? Where did you grow up and where do you currently live?
Im 22, grew up in Long Beach, New York and moved to Island Park when I was 12 with my family. Currently reside in Island Park which is about 50 minutes from Manhattan. I go to school there and I’m planning on making a move to one of the five boroughs within the next year or so.

So you got affected by hurricane Sandy, and I know some of your shit got messed up. Are you back home now? What was that whole experience of being displaced like?
Yea, unfortunately Sandy hit us hard. The 10 or so years we lived here in Island Park there was never an inch of flooding. When Sandy arrived my block turned into a river and my lower level was flooded out. Between cleaning, throwing out the belongings, then dealing with no heat and electricity for weeks wasn’t fun. We lost cars, almost lost my blades, and a ton of other belongings. Luckily my family and friends in the area are okay so that’s all that I can really ask for. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment for two weeks after Sandy so being back home feels great. Being displaced was rough but it makes you think about all the royalties we take for granted.
