Up Close Photos of Pier 62 Skatepark

August 17, 2009

Thanks to Victor Callender for pulling a B&E (no not bacon and eggs) and taking these exclusive up close photos of the newly constructed Pier 62 skate park in Manhattan, NY. The terrain looks great, all cement based on the photos, but the grinding material doesn’t look too ideal for us skaters. The edges seem to be painted cement rather than angle iron or metal railing which is usually used for parks. Maybe i’m wrong. Check the rest of the photos after the jump.

I Roll NY Exclusive: First Photo of the New Pier 62 Skatepark

July 20, 2009



Today I received an exclusive picture of the Pier 62 skatepark that’s still under development. Though the park isn’t completely finished from what can be seen in the picture it seems like it’s going to be one of the best park spots to skate in our city. The layout is impressive, less cluttered, and much more open ended from it’s previous layout. More information and pictures will be provided as the park develops. Thanks for the pic…

I Roll NY Exclusive: “This is skating” Tee!

This new design is a concept that I’ve been wanting to make for a while. This shirt sends a clear message to those uninformed/ignorant audiences who always refer to me, you, and everyone else on rollerblades as a skateboarder. We’re clearly on rollerblades and to make it even more obvious the message on the shirt confirms that simple little fact. The shirt also has a neat little feature. When read first, the shirt reads “This is not skateboarding.” When only the clear letters are read the shirt reads, “This is skating.” Up is a sample that was done. More news on the new I Roll NY line will be coming soon. Hope you enjoy.

I Roll NY Exclusive: Austin Paz Valo and Create Originals Setup

June 30, 2009

Staying on top of the Create Original updates, I stumbled upon these pictures posted up by Austin Paz himself of his current setup. The setup includes the new Cool Snake Valos, Trust liners and a custom Create Originals frame graphic. Check the mini review that Austin wrote. “By far the best looking Valo skate ever made. The new Trust Liners are mad comfy. My old ones I probably only had for about 6 months but didn’t rip and worked fine in my Valos with the toes cut…I started riding the Create Original Frames a few months ago and can honestly say they’re the best frames I ever skated. They skate just as good as you can imagine the perfect frame being, but the customization possibilities make them that much better. I recently printed out a few of my own designs on regular photo paper and I’m more juiced on them than anything. This pic shows you can make your frames match any skate” – Austin Paz.

I Roll NY Exclusive*: Ben Schwab footwraps and Sean Kelso Glow in the dark USD’s

June 1, 2009

Ben Schwab prototype Xsjado footwraps (click to enlarge)

One of rollerblading’s most unique skaters, Ben Schwab, will be receiving his own footwrap from skate company, Xsjado, said to be released this summer. As you can see in the photo above the approach seems to be a more casual basic sneaker design that looks wearable outside of skating.

Sean Kelso prototype glow in the dark USD’s

In other prototype news, Sean Kelso originally posted a full boot picture of his USD prototype which is said to glow in the dark but then later changed it to this cropped version. It’s not for certain if the whole setup can glow in the dark but rumors are that only the cuff will be able to. As well, according to SK, via the be-mag messageboard, these will not be coming out anytime soon and it’s no surprise seeing as how most USD’s riders are currently skating the Deshi carbons.
