“Kelly Matthews has been a staple in the NYC skate scene for over 15 years. She is 1 of the 2 ever World Champions from the NYC area (along with former FR team mate Ryan “Riggler” Jacklone. With accolades to her credit such as: being honored as one of the “50 Best Female Athletes” by the Women’s Sports Foundation at the 25th Annual Salute To Women’s Sports Awards, to being featured in their book titled “100 Greatest Women Athletes” in 2003. Along with X Games, Gravity Games, and Goodwill Games medals to boot. In a male dominated industry Kelly helped solidify the females place in rolling sports. For a decade & a half she has continued to be presence & an influence to women & men alike both inside & out of skate culture. Current day Matthews continues to be a force in the NYC skate community. Attending & participating in events & still shredding the streets of NYC, Jersey, and abroad. We celebrate Kelly, her 16th year of skating & all she has done for the skate community at her 28th Birthday Bash” – Ray Mendez.

“NYC Rolls” – A Group Photo Show
NYC is rapidly re-staking its claim as the World Capital of skate culture. Long the home of one of the strongest, longest running & most committed skate scenes world wide – 2009 marked the “rebirth of the giant”. The level of athleticism, talent & style that has been & is currently being produced by skaters out of NYC is unmatched by any city or scene on Earth. In this group photo show we showcase some of that talent – both in front of & behind the lens. With veterans such as Angelo Ferrer, newer talents such as Caesar McKay & transplants/phenoms such as Jeremy Stephenson (aka Jero) NYC is poised to produce some of the most amazing skate imagery the world has seen. NYC Rolls will showcase some select works from each of these photographers. This exhibition will run for 3 weeks at the CSV (Clemente, Soto Velez) main floor gallery with an opening reception on Sat Jan 28th 2010.

New Vibralux New York City Tee

October 1, 2009


Vibralux has recently released a new line of jeans along with the new tee shown above. Adam Johnson posted via the Be-Mag message board that the photo used for the shirt was taken in NYC by one of our city’s newest resident’s Jeremy Stephenson aka Jero. I got in contact with Jero to get some more info on the shirt. “Well basically Alex [Broskow] and AJ had an idea for a photo based tee, and commissioned me to shoot it and wanted a B&W image with an NYC feel. I packed up some photo gear and biked about 35 miles around the city early in the summer shooting all sort of things along the way. We ended up with a few hundred options and narrowed it down to this one. The final pick was taken from the Manhattan bridge looking down into Brooklyn. I should get to see the shirt on Monday in person, i’m hyped. Oh yeah, and shout out to my home girl Opal Morris who’s kicking off her modeling career with this one” – Jero. Vibralux is always making quality products so show your support for a quality company that’s showing our city some love. Thanks to Jero for the behind the scenes info.

More photos of the shirt can be seen here and here.

Last Saturday was the third Lets Roll NY session created by Victor Callender and the Wheels In Motion team. It was the biggest turn out we had during LRNY, filled with tons of local New Yorker’s and a handful of guest appearances by the likes of Jeremy Stephenson, Julian Bah, and Ben Schwab. Some of our local pros and legends came out as well. Franco Cammayo, Billy O’Neil, Sam Grimm, Ramelle Knight and plenty of others were in attendance to witness the 50+ crowd that gathered together to show their support for what we all love doing. I reached out to those who came out to the session, and luckily Evotek Media’s Adonis Taylor came through with a great summary of his experience during our session which I feel sums up how we all felt. Check out his story along with accompanying photos from Angelo Ferrer, Layla Ferrer, Lari Dal Lago, Craig Benabu and Adonis Taylor himself after the jump.
