Blading Cup Spring ’23 Preview
For twelve years the Blading Cup has been an annual tradition on blade calendars, and a growing presence in the Santa Ana community. And for each of the previous outings, the event has fundamentally been judged the same: skater are grouped, skate in groups for a few minutes, the highest judged skaters are pushed on to the next round, and so on. But this year, for the second showing of the "Spring Cup," the event organizers are mixing things up and introducing a new format: cash for tricks...

On a weekend spent up in the northwest of England visiting friends, I couldn’t help myself in keeping one day free to go hook up with my favourite North Welsh dude, Tom Barrio. The plan was to have a day of adventures along the beautiful North Welsh coastline, with the hope of bagging a few snaps along the way...

BCSD 2023: Ten Years Waiting
Ten years may have passed since the last BCSD but the excitement raged on as an international field of bladers took to the course at Modern Skatepark for a chance to earn the title of BCSD Champ. After a long day of impressive blading and exciting tricks, Luke Naylor took the title with an incredible Finals-round showing where he leveled up in real time, linking highly technical tricks back-to-back to come out on top. Congrats to everyone that came out to Detroit for the event and each and every competitor, with special thanks to Daniel Kinney for making it happen “one more time.”

ONE @ Winterclash 2023
Winterclash 2023 went off! Julien Cudot took his third win — a first for the event — and a whole bunch of the most exciting blade talents from around the world descended onto the recently refurbished Area 51 skatepark to prove who would earn a place on the top 3 podium. There were hard slams, impossible transfers, jaw-dropping switch-ups, and the high energy, crowd-stomping atmosphere that only comes around once a year every February in Eindhoven. Congratulations to all the competitors and thanks to the organizers and volunteers that make Winterclash possible. See you all next year!

Looking forward to BCSD 2023 with Daniel Kinney
Next month, ten years since the last time bladers made the annual pilgrimage to the midwest, Bitter Cold Showdown will take place at Modern Skatepark. For anyone keeping score, the loss of North America’s largest blade event was no small matter. It was a tentpole event for the whole calendar year, and at the time it was the best opportunity around for interfacing directly with fans and customers, thanks to the revolutionary trade show component. But now it’s back, for a one-day advanced competitor event, so we caught up with event creator Daniel Kinney to learn more.

Stéphane Alfano – Alfamor (2023)
In his time on blades, Stéphane Alfano has established a reputation as one of the world's most thrilling bladers. Known for logic-defying transfers and seeking out high-risk situations, he has dominated competition tours, wowed crowds, and alienated fellow skaters with his abundance of self-confidence. But now, gaining perspective with time, maturity, and the experience of recovering from an injury, Stéphane is ready to return to rollerblading. He recently spent a month traveling and skating throughout Mexico, taking his trademark fearless approach to a wide variety of spots and terrain.

Blading Cup 2022: The Main Event
As has become blade tradition, on the first weekend of November some 300+ competitors from all across the world descended on Santa Ana, California for Blading Cup. This fall event following the first-ever spring event in April made 2022 the first time there had ever been two Blading Cup events in the same calendar year. And like each event before it in this long-running series, the fall 2022 event was even bigger, better than ever.

Now living in the first restriction free summer after The Covid 19 pandemic, the smell of opportunity was in the air once again. For the most part the vast majority of people were taking advantage, myself and Radek Kojtych included. We had already spent years forever talking of “working together” on a project. But it was this post-Covid atmosphere that finally made us grasp the nettle with both hands.
