Getting down to business…….

leave a comment »

I just watched this section from an old skate video….VG19.  VG – Videogroove was the biggest video series in rollerblading history so this section was huge for the MN scene back in the day.  What I noticed in this section is how my good friend Ben Weis knows how to get down to business.  Since we were from Austin and didn’t get many chances for exposure, mainly because we didn’t have a camera yet and we weren’t up in Minneapolis to go out filming.  This section shows how Ben knew how to get down to business.  Notice all his clips are in the same outfit…meaning they were all sh0t in the same day.  Man I miss blading with that guy.  I remember the first time i went street skating with him after coming back from serving a mission in Peru ( i could barely roll straight yet let alone get my blade game on) he convinced me to do this 8 stair-flat- to 12 stair disaster.  I locked it , didnt land it….of course…but i, for the first time in 2 yrs felt that juice run through my veins (i sort of felt it when i learned to back flip in the MTC) and it was one of the funnest days skating i have ever had even though i could barely walk after it.   Blade game 2001.

Getting down to business is not easy.  Keeping yourself going all day long.  Man i remember shooting for Be-mag and how i would meet up with cam and one spot would take it out of me.  given i am not the most consistent blader and i am getting old…..
