Tom Coley-Sowry: One Minute One Spot



Intro and photo by Craig Smith
Edit by Thomas Dalbis

This spot is located in Wheelers Hill, a suburb of Melbourne, Australia. The only time I had been there everyone was having a bad day, so we decided to make excuses to not skate it, the rail was too sketchy, down-hill run-up, little lip of wood to get caught on just near the end of the rail on the far-side, and 'graze your face' asphalt to land on. So when I heard from Mr. Dalbis that little Tom Coley-Sowry managed to pump out a 'One Minute One Spot' edit just on this rail I was so pumped! I've known Little Tom for around 3-4 years now, and when he's not chilling/relaxing/catching his breath at a spot, he's a ball of energy just shredding (sort of like Sonic the Hedgehog). He has a bright future in skating, and I hope him all the best.

Xcrews exclusive Interview: Colin Kelso


Here is, the interview where Colin Kelso speaks about what happened on Be-Mag messageboard, how is he right now, in what he is working at the moment and how is his life, everythig made possible by Colin Kelso and Tony Cheetah.

All the questions are marked on bold as you can navigate better throught it, right now, no more words... here is the interview to Colin Kelso from Tony Cheetah:

(Tell us what are your thoughts about the truth of Skating and whats the philosophy that you wanted to represent on the truth 2.)
When it comes to piecing a video part together, I have always tried to do things differently. I like to watch old videos and see things being done that were cool then, but are not being done now. An example of that would be my fast plant 360 in my section in the truth2. How many people know that Matt Andrews did that in vg5 supernatural? You see, making something new is pretty close to impossible but people have been trying to re-invent things so they can be shown in the right light. Take Farmer with bringing negatives back and doing them with style. Or look at Broskow and how he popularized a once often over-looked illusion spin. I mean those tricks were not invented by those guys but when you watch their video parts you can see they sort of have this message going on with them. And don't get me wrong I am not saying these guys consciously make an effort to do that, but maybe they do? Either way, the point I am trying to make is that the "truth" or whatever you want to call it behind my philosophy is to use your brain. The best skaters in the world all use their brain and are more times than not are extreme perfectionists when it comes to their skating. I have always lived by the ideal, "don't tolerate sloppy skating if it is in your skill set to lace it better"...or something along those lines hahah. I think you guys know what I mean.

(Tell us why we have to buy The truth 2.)
Well, the truth2 was actually made by skaters who themselves were also capable to produce video sections as well. I don't think theres any other filmers in the game who pump out video parts as well as film them. I think thats what adds to why we have had such a positive response from the skating community. Having been able to skate on a professional level as allowed us to gain insight that has really furthered our filming capabilities. It's been a blessing working with the talented individuals that we worked with and if you want to see some of the most tasteful skating to date of Billy O'Neill, Austin Paz, Franco Cammayo, JonJon Bolino, Montre Livingston, Alex Broskow, Murda, and the Kelso Brothers then this is why you should get the DVD.

)Whats is the full equipment of camera's that you used to make the video?)
We used a Panasonic HVX, Panasonic DVX, a 5D AND a 7D.

(Why did you use that music in your section? What was the reason of using hardrock songs like Danzig?)

I'm actually super glad you asked me that question. This is a long story, but it's definately one worth telling and it just goes to show you how much thought I actually put into making a section in regards to more than just trying to do innovative tricks.

Alright, so we all know the truth2 took two years to film. A lot can happen to a man in two years and needless to say a lot happened to me during the filming of this section.

But first let me dive into how I was going mad. And since I am kind of a hard guy to embarrass I really have no shame in stating that I acted like an asshole to a lot of people on the internet, especially be-mag. If you can remember ever reading one of my rants about the industry or why contests suck you can probably remember that it sounded super angry. And I was angry. I was going through this crazy point in my life. Perhaps maybe it had to do with rollerblading being such a deprived market due to the main market shares not distributing their profits correctly. I really want to do good for this culture and sometimes I take it way too far and then de-value the good opinions I might have made with my super emotional shit talk.

Now during this time of me going mad, I was receiving a lot of backlash from USD who wanted to know why I haven't been putting out any material lately. They thought maybe I wasn't skating because I had been saving this footage for two years. And since the internet took over and the cult of the amateur arose. What I mean by the cult of the amatuer is that now any one with a 1300 dollar computer, some editing software, and a video camera can now be put onto the same media pedestal as professionals. You see back in the day professionals were featured in videos/magazines and no where else. But what happened is all these amateur skaters started putting out more edits with less experienced skating and lower quality. But the audience didn't seem to mind and nor did the sponsors who only care about catering to their audience. I was angry that the internet was ruining our standards for rollerblading. It drove me mad because I thought a lot of people getting shine didn't even deserve it. I thought what I had loved and had so much respect for was going down the toliet and I wanted to change it. Thats why you saw the insane side of me writing on message boards to convey my philosophy behind skating.

So after a while, I started to think maybe it was all the drinking and drugs I was doing that was making me insane. Or maybe it was that my body needed a clense? I wasn't sure but I decided it would probably be for the better to one day just go cold turkey and quit all that crap. And it was a good thing I did. I finished up my section the last 2 and a half months completely sober before our deadline. Thats when I was able to get a lot of my hammers in and it was also the time when I shaved my head. Whenever I had to leave something behind I always did it by shaving my head. This might sound a little crazy but I think something gets learned when you leave something behind. In my case I was leaving behind drugs and having a shaved head symbolized in my mind that I would be ready to grow into something new. And something new did come to me. I have learned how to deal with the way things are on a respectful level and I no longer feel the need to rage out or put anybody or anything on blast for no reason.

Needless to say I was feeling appologetic and extremely sad when I had this revelation. I want everyone to know that I acknowledge acting like that is unprofessional and wrong. I do feel regret and would like to appologize. And I think I did that with my truth 2 section. Let me explain why.

Alright, so I am super into lyrics when it comes to picking a song to skate to.

The first song I skated to was the Green Manalishi by Judas Priest. This song was originally written by Peter Green. Peter Green used to be in Fleetwood Mac, and the last song he wrote before he left was the haunting 'Green Manalishi,' which seems to document his struggle to stop his descent into madness.

Green has explained that he wrote the song after experiencing a drug-induced dream, in which he was visited by a green dog which barked at him. He understood that the dog represented money. He is quoted to have said, "It scared me because I knew the dog had been dead a long time. It was a stray and I was looking after it. But I was dead and had to fight to get back into my body, which I eventually did. When I woke up, the room was really black and I found myself writing the song."

This relates to my story behind making my section in that I had to find my way back to the skater I used to be before the anger and drugs. I knew that these lyrics would explain my story properly on a subliminal level for skaters who were smart enough to catch it. Then, I heard Judas Priest's version ahah and we all know Judias Priest is a metal legend and I figured the pace he would set for the lyrics would be more entertaining for skating than Green's version.

Now my next section I skated to Danzig- Sistinas. This song was meant to symbolize how lonely inside I felt when I realized a lot of people were starting to dislike me. This also was meant to represent my coming into realization of my mistakes.I wanted to express ideas of a new me coming into the picture. A me who in reality did ask for forgiveness to his audience. Listen to the lyrics its so obvious...

Take my hand,
You'll never find,
Another quite like mine.
If you look,
You'll see that I'm,
A lonely one.

I-I-(I) lost my soul,
Deep inside.
Oooh-And it's so,
Black and cold,
Deep inside.


That says it all right there. I am truly a lonely guy without the love from this culture. And even at the expense of maybe sounding corny to some thats the truth. Thats whats going on in my head and if you can't respect that then maybe you can atleast appreciate my honesty. But anyways all in all, this video part is meant and dedicated to those of you who lost faith in me. This section was for you guys. I love rollerblading and without it and your support I would be lost.

(The truth2 is a pure street skating video, did you have problems or bad days with cops and security guards?)
Not really. We skate in the hood. Some of the most notorious dead beat neighborhoods were featured in the truth. Theres a documentary called Killadelphia on youtube. The neighborhoods they showcase in that is what we skate and cops dont go there and if they do they are not worried about skating.

(Do you remember what was the hardest trick that you had to film?)
The hardest trick was probably one of my more technical ledge tricks. The hammers are just scary. People who try big gaps don't try them 100 times usually. I mean for a gap I wouldn't try more than 4 times and thats if I really wanted it. But on a ledge I might try something that takes hours.

(Are you going to make another skate video? any plans for the future?)
Yea we have plans for a few video projects actually. At the moment none have solidified into definates; however you can expect more online promo down the road from my brother and I. We had a blast out in Arizona when we made that "always sunny in az" edit. Trips like that are really enjoyable for us and make great for online material. I have to give a special shot out to James and Gretchen from Revolution and videographer Jon Jenkins for making that trip extra rad for us!

(What is your situation right now about representing brands...?)
I quit USD because Mark Korte is a really corny guy and I didn't like working with them anyway. They don't listen and are way too secretive. I got some Nimhs from Shima and Elliott. And now everything I rep is skater owned with no bullshit attached. And don't get it twisted I didn't leave for money. I skate Nimhs for free on prinicple. I don't want the next generation to have to go through that bullshit. I truly believe if rollerblading is going to grow then skater owned companies need to control the main market shares. It took me a lot of trial and error to come to this realization but now it has come to fruition. And with that being said I for one have made the move to only work with skater owned companies. I guarentee you would see skaters better taken care of and bigger budgets for cooler tours and just better end product in general. I personally don't want to wait around with my dick between my legs selling my soul for a couple hundred bucks a month from some greedy guy who only talks to me through emails. Its really a dead end street, more pro skaters need to man up and sacrafice to support real shit. Revolutions dont happen until people get pissed off about their situation. I am surprised more pros arent pissed the fuck off with who owns this shit. Its pretty depressing skaters will let guys like them survive when there blatently dicking us all over. In all honesty its a complete contradiction to say you want blading to grow and then not support skater owned companies who truly do have bladings best interest in mind.

Moving along though, I am actually a little terrified because rollerblading is getting really sick right now and it could go mainstream again. This could be problematic for our culture. Right now this industry's main dollars are going towards men who wouldnt distribute the funds correctly because there not skaters. They have in the past kept too much for themselves while skaters cant even get health insurance. If rollerblading blew up they would take that money and run and probably crush us into another recession. I think if we expect to have a solid future then skaters need to control the market and practice running their companies before it ever hits the lime light. This way when it does come back around our main companies will be skater owned with the right knowledge for growth. This way blading can grow instead of being stuck in this stagnet mess where two german guys who supposedly have no relation are milking us dry.Weird right? ha

(Do you have any plans to come to skate in spain? Do you remember something about when you stayed in Barcelona?)
I would love to come to skate Spain again. Barcelona was a beautiful city with some of the most interesting architecture I have ever seen. The best memory was skating block to block searching for spots with the locals. Thats what street skating is all about and thats how me and my friends like doing it back where were from! It was awesome to see the similarities and a pleasure learning the differences! I love being around new cultures and the Spanish culture was one I will surely always remember.

Thanks for the opportunity to be heard.

Take care Tony!

As a final thoughts, we will like to say thanks to Colin Kelso for the work he made on this interview, he answered very very detailed each question and took enough time to make it very well. Also, to Tony Cheetah who worked on the questions very well too and reach Colin Kelso to make this posible.

Last Man Standing 2010: Pro Competition edit + Write Up + Results



As last week Be-Mag is once again the first online source to provide an edit showing the madness at this year's Last Man Standing 2010. Our New York correspondent Joseph Perez (as well as different others) attended the event to capture the best tricks from the best Street Skaters in this world. Here is a first edit and a first review of the contest. Read on.

Intro by Oliver Nermerich
Text and edit by Joseph Perez

August 28th 2010 has now come and gone.... But nonetheless it was a remarkable weekend for me. This day is known for the Last Man Standing Pro Competition held in Upper West Manhattan at a spot that many do not skate for fun called The Pit. The Pit is a good area because the residents nor police bother rollerbladers at all. One thing is for sure though, The Pit is not a session spot but a very dangerous spot that has tested many. On this day a fellow New York Roller and friend was injured when he crossed the path of the last spot on this day. Recover well and soon Jesus Medina. I would like to say that it was very difficult to film this competition because there were so many others trying to spectate, film and photograph at the spots. I did the best I could do to put this out and make it look good, so enjoy. The turn out was 100+ including Pro's and Am's alike. This edit Features Nick Wood, Brian Aragon, Nick Uhas, Julian Bah, Dre Powell, Mark Wojda, Jesus Medina, Tim Franken, Rob Guerrero, Trevor Johnson, Ramelle Knight, Alex Nunez, Jimmy Shuda, David Sizemore, Jeff Dalnes, Evan Grimball, Jose Henriquez, Dave Lang, Dan Breuer, Mason Richards, James Perez and many more.

The Colin K quits all sponsers disscussion


I think that colin and any other pro has full right to start demanding more from sponsers , than say for example 300USD\month which is a joke , since im sure "The Conference" makes alot more from all their brands combined!

for example if you are a wheel company which does well you would be selling 3000-6000 sets of wheels within a 3month period if not better, so say 6000 per 3months thats 24000sets in a year which = 240,000dollers so hmmm , im not saying that all the wheel co.s do but for example.

skate comapanies can sell a estimated 10,000pairs of skates for $$$\skate so thats 1000000 hmm gussing thats alot of money.. if your skate co. does that well.

the disscussion: http://www.rollernews.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=46886&st=0&gopid=556218&#entry556218

frame companies would make just a little more than wheel co´s $$$$\frame and for example sell say 10,000 which = 300,000

bearings , well most rollers cant be bothered with rebuilding their bearings so we could see around the same numbers as skates and bearings, 10,000 sets

then on the other hand you have to take into account, costs of producing the skates,bearings,frames,wheels,clothing... materials,paints...

I do think that USD,Xsjado,Sifika,UnderCover aka the conference could provide a better wage just a bit more to help cover costs that riders have.

as for rollerblader owned and run companies , Valo brand is doing fairly well... skates are fairly good and the quality of design for their skates and clothings is top notch and jon does put alot of time into giving the best products that he can that hold up to the task.

remz is doing some great effort to providing better built skates with resilient materials.. but he only sells skates , has a deal with ground control and 4x4 mabe which gives a bit of money to invest in remz.

nimh by brian shima&jon elliot 2-3yrs since they started and its a great brand, shima and the crew have put years into the brand and the dream and theyve got skates that look cool,m skate well and hold up well, and have been coming up with any improvments progressivly... good on em i say and support 100% skate owned.

I cant say that all the companies that make skates,wheels,frames,bearings,clothing,shoes,liners should pay alot more but calculate their net earnings better. excluding paying the factory that they pay to make the stuff.

camon 300USD\month really?

the only riders that should be paid are PRO riders , considering the fact that they are at the forefront of the sport and putting most effort in the end.

do we want to see a drop in pro riders representing professionally like we did 5-6years ago??? do we??

NO we dont! NO NO NO we dont want that.

so all the skate,bearing,wheel,clothing,shoe making companies read this and make tracks to be a more fair industry.


Lets just keep on skating and make your contribution to what you and I enjoy doing... if we want a bright future for our riders and YOU,ME then we need to Love what we do and represent , continue doing it.

exposing people to the awsome sport we have.

we are heading in the right direction with getting known and growing as a great community and culture..

KEEP ON ROLLING.

Skateboarding vs. Other Extreme Sports participation numbers... blading related

inline skating as a whole is still ranked no1 in participants.. which is great, just that those numbers arent thhhat prevelent in our sport but the great thing is that the up period of our sport is in progress so we can expect more fun and exciting stuff happening like hedonskate team filming for a episode of disneys XD program now happening sooo yeah, siick stuff...


Skateboarding vs. Other Extreme Sports

THE TRUTH 2 Official Review by R.A.M.G.I.F



At last time has allowed for all that are reading, and curious, should i buy a copy?? and why? , the pro´s and Cons of what the Kelso brothers & Austin Paz have created that is THE TRUTH 2.

to start of , on arrival of my new USD Duffle Bagpack it was very much exciting, and from what the dvd showed i was not dissapointed and stayed glued to the screen all the way through and it was spine tingling to say the least.

the first cons that i can remember would have to be:

1. quality of audio&video was in great deatil

2. the shots used to introduce you to where it was they filmed for the sections was great... location location location...

3. Music and timeing of each trick was on point and didnt confuse or mess up the skating itself.

we had good variety, Hip hop, rock, dj beats.. a mad song from Justice , which section i cant say but i can say that it was siick...

4. seeing how hard it was for Billy o neal waiting and keeping himself occupied in those 12months of rehab was great to see.., to understand and see for your self how dedicated and keen he was. his section was flawless and MAAAD!

overall it was a great dvd that showcased each rider being 8 of them! soo chockablock of visual stimulation to get you juiced to skate...

soo yeah get it , its a collectable and i think theyve made great leaps in making this dvd THE TRUTH 2! soo grab a copy at your local.

Bayside blades in AUS or skaterHQ

and everywhere else in the world...

Evolution of skating through 2002 to 2010



dustin Latimer WORDS section Part 1. 2002

Introducing the one and only, Dustin Latimer!, considered by many as one of if not THE trend setters of the 1990s rolling revolution, who laid the foundations of the tricks\manuvers that rollerbladers use today and that have evolved in regards to how a trick is done and speed used and most of all making it look good with Style which is ephisised upon in current dvd releases.

He has recently come back onto the USD All Stars Team and from what rumours say, filming is in progress and we may see some kool video\video edits from the legends them selves..

no doubt brushing up after their absence, and somthing exciting for the OG´s out there that have been in the sport since the early era of the culture\sport that was and is now.

THE TRUTH 2 produced by the Kelso Brothers Colin and Sean and Austin Paz. a must see dvd, and while im mentioning this, a full review will be bloged for your convenience for an insight to what pro´s and Con´s of this latest creation by the Kelso´s & Austin Paz. are.




ONE of our all time legends, in one of his best sections circa 2005 , now back skating in the USD All Star Legends team in 2010.



4x4 Drip Drop Chris Haffey Section, haffey aka superman, a skater that does not dissapoint when it comes to delivering a rock solid section packed with gaps, style and gets you juiced to throw on your skates. recently featured in the Australian "Nitro Circus" Tour around the country which was great to see and a great oppertunity to showcase our sport to the public earlier this year. full interview with chris haffey talking about his experience on tour with the cast of MTV´s "Nitro Circus" can be found here: www.emesce.com

so we´ve covered 2002 , 2005 , 2008 now for the next 2years.

as many have noticed in 2008 it was said that Rollerblading was in its "Dark Age" or in the dark ages, which in translation, is before the we just reached the light at the end of the tunnel, where the streo type propaganda put forward by people involved in other action sports dissappeared and as a community we have struggled to uncover the real public image of our sport that until now was and still is visually distorted and now is being recognised by those who share a undying passion for what some regard as a ART, physical expression where you can choose how you skate, by getting involved with public demo´s such as NASS music and sports festivals, nokia fise and many other events including KIA Asia Xgames that is help annually.

and of course most recently established The W.R.S - World Rolling Series which was created to unite all the events from all over the WORLD in one place, to refine and show that we are now at the level needed to be taken seriously and professionally by the rest of the Action Sports community.

www.worldrollingseries.com

and at a community grass roots level including myself, reping what we do accurately every day , Having FUN! meeting with frinds for that weekly night skate seshion and weekends...

get kids in the know and juiced about giving rollerblading a fair go.

Now Get those Blades and strap them on and have a mad time... No Pain No Gain ;)

Helmets and other protection encouraged for beginers and for any dangerous stunts. ;)

Nick Wood, Damien Wilson, Joey Chase and more: One Minute, One Spot

hree years ago, us boys in Santee got pissed that all the good rails around here were capped, and we sucked at hand rails, so we asked our sponsors to help us build a training ground. 4X4, M1, and Remz contributed to us along with our own money to build a practice rail in Damien's yard. Since then we've been having regular legendary BBQ's and sessions like this one shown were we skate the rail and have good ole American fun. This weekend Damien, Rob, Joey and Sammy Chase and me (Nick Wood) got down like we always do all summer long. When I started seeing the "One Minute One Spot" edits I thought that our weekly BBQ's were perfect for that forum. If the Internet homo's want to bust my ball's about doing a Two minute edit they can do the math and see there is 58 seconds of skating, so suck it from Santee.

Grindhouse Scandinavia Tour 2010 Live-Update #1

Grindhouse is on tour through Scandinavia to film for their new DVD.

So Grindhouse is on tour again to film a tour DVD for Grindhouse's 15th anniversary and besides the fact that they're trying to skate as much as possible the typical tour life goes along with it: Less sleep, crowded appartements, alcohol etc. are well known ingredients on a tour that gains it's real spirit by skaters.

Just yesterday we arrived in Stockholm, brought our stuff to our poor beloved host Kenth Ulvedal and went downtown to take some drinks and to watch out for the thing which makes Scandinavia famous: beautiful blonde girls!

We went skating today and went to the mall which was right next to the last spot, because some of us needed a sleeping bag, then we called it a day and hung out in Kenth's appartement for the rest of the night. As we're not friends of much words we would like to let the pictures speak for itself.

> Nike sponsoring inline?? Really




In 2002 Nike signed pro skateboarder Paul Rodriguez and started nike 6.0.
Since then our offshoot of the Nike company has branched off into BMX, snowboarding, skiing, wakeboarding and moto X.

Now with the rise in popularity of aggressive rollerblading in Europe and Asia our company is looking into adding this extreme sport into our lineup.
We have started with the signing of Tiawanese skaters Neo and Killer K.

We are currently in talks with two more Japanese rollerbladers to increase our Asian team.

In the next year our plans to include rollerblading in the 6.0 family will take us to Europe which is the home to a great event I attended last year called winterclash.
This one event with crowds standing all over the course got both myself and Nike interested in rollerblading and its upcoming rise in popularity.
As many of you would know Nike currently makes both recreational rollerblades as well as ice and hockey skates.
During my trip to Europe I spoke to a French former ASA champion regarding a future boot release from Nike 6.0.

In the U.s Nike hopes to sponsor not only an amature team, but also sponsore some upcoming park competitions.

This is Nike's longterm goal with your sport and we would kindly like your input .

Please help by answering our survey.

Your thanks Mike Wise. CEO Nike 6.0 sports USA.

umm yea shhhhhure ;)

How Eulogy wheels are made video

About time…by vinest Vine st DVD

The last blog update was on xmas eve 2009…jesus…so yeh over 6 months later we’re still filming for the video!

The video itself is about 80% done, with Rian, CJ,Richie and Tien all with completed draft sections…next 2 months will just be getting those last few clips to finish things up. The video will be available to buy before xmas this year so look out for a new trailer and stuff nov/dec time.

A lot of shit has changed since the last update. The residence of Vine St itself have changed a lot, with new faces like Bower and Craig on the scene, and with me and Simon living north shore now. The biggest change to the scene has to be the loss of Richie. After a quick trip home to Canada in June, some visa issues mean he won’t be returning for a good while. I think I can speak for everyone in saying that this is really fucking sad. Fortunately Richie hit it pretty hard just before he left so his section was almost complete anyway. We miss you cunt!



You’ve probably seen this before, but here is the last edit we made this year. A new monster edit and box edit are in the works also.

Here are some random pics we took recently.







Aight, 2 more months of filming and then we’re finalising everything, so hopefully we’ll have more frequent updates from now on!
