Skating at Night

You work. Monday to Friday 9 to 5. On weekends you are busy running errands and fixing things that shouldn't have broken. A quick trip to Ikea can easily turn into an exhausting day long excursion with the added bonus of having to assemble everything once you get home. You know the deal, we work hard but how often do we really get to play?

Wheels 4 Freedom (Our House)

The other day as I browsed the web for news relating to Inline Skating I came across a really inspiring CTV News story about 77 year old Norm Sharkley's goal to raise enough money to purchase a Vancouver property that will be used to assist homeless addicts within the Vancouver area. Perhaps the most interesting part of Norm's Wheels 4 Freedom campaign is his use of inline skates as a means of travelling a distance of approximately 5300km in order to raise the necessary funds to make his dream a reality.


Anthony Finocchiaro put together a great video of his trip to Canada, where he spent time skating with Leon, Joey, and Todd. I'd suggest putting your skates on before you click play cause after you watch this you will want to get out on your skates right away.

In case you missed it Shop-Task is once again carrying the new jeans from Vibralux Denim. In the past Vibralux had always made the best slim fit jeans, known for being extremely easy to skate in with a cut that you could wear when you go out. Long time fans of the brand exist and its a relief to know that each line is an improvement in overall quality and stylish as ever.

Seba Street X Brian Long and Danny Beer

For the past few weeks Brian Long and Danny Beer have been working on a little something something to promote Seba's new line of aggressive skates. Being the talented skaters they are, Danny and Brian decided to make a true street edit for the brand filled with creative tricks, awesome spots and on point rap music. Anyone who has ever tried to make a street section of their own knows just how difficult a task this can be especially when the person you are collaborating with lives in a different country!
