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.

Saturday night we took the mission to Washington Heights to get some night skating in before the rain hit us. We posted up an alert on our Instagram page and Facebook page inviting everyone to come along and we had a great turnout. Thanks to everyone who attended. You can check out all the photos from the session below featuring Pablo Munoz, Augusto Castillo, Alex Mendez, James Perez, and Angelo Morales.
Terrence Henry put together this small edit during Saturday’s session where we skated in honor of Alex Nunez. Check out the clips of Adonis Taylor, Arismendy Canela, James Perez, Brian Keohane, Terrence Henry, and Leomarsh Pascasio as the session was coming to an end.
“A short edit to celebrate the life of Alex Nunez! R.I.P. Thank you I Roll NY for letting me borrow your camera lens, much appreciated! Thank you NYSS founder Adonis Taylor for holding down NYC & supporting the awareness of the #SkateForAlex movement! Thank you to everyone who came out to skate this weekend for Alex’s Birthday and supported #SkateForAlex World Wide” – Terrence Henry.
This weekend we’re asking all of the blading community to use #SKATEFORALEX in their social media posts in honor of the late, great Alex Nunez. Alex was a staple in the New York City skating scene and we want to keep his memory alive for his family and friends. Please take a second to add the hashtag on your Instagram, Facebook, Twitter…etc. accounts this weekend.
Featuring Austin Paz, Sean Money, Justin Brasco, and Hector Gonzalez. “This high-speed footage was meant to be part of a bigger project. However, after sitting on the footage for over half a year, I came to the conclusion that if I didn’t use them, they would just get lost in my graveyard of hard drives eventually. So last night I decided to do my best to cut together an edit with some of the footage I shot that day. Special thanks to the crew for helping me carry heavy ass gear around all day while skating hard as hell” – Anthony Chen. Filmed and edited by Anthony Chen.

On September 12, 2014 New York City bladers arrived at Pier 25 skate plaza to celebrate Brian “Cozmik” Scott’s birthday. Local blader Jordan Baez organized the day’s session and contest in Brian’s honor. We spent the early afternoon skating the plaza and kicking off the contest, then made our way to street spots, ending the session / competition at the L.E.S. skatepark where Brian Keohane came out victorious. Followed by Eddie Chung taking 2nd place and Terrence Henrey taking 3rd. Photos from the session can be seen below featuring the top 3 winners of the competition as well as James Perez, Sebastian Michalski, Arismendy Canela, Chris DeJesus, and Jordan Baez. A big thanks to Roller Warehouse for sponsoring the session.
On September 15th, 2012, Rollerbladers from all over New York City and New Jersey came together to show their support for Brian Scott Jr. A local rollerblader whose life was taken too soon on October 12, 2009. This is a small montage dedicated to Brian, with over forty rollerbladers honoring and skating in his memory. Today is the anniversary of his passing, but we feature this montage today from his memorial session, in honor of his life. Thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate Brian and participated in the montage. This one’s for you Cozmik.
