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.
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!
Today I had the pleasure of meeting Laurie at our Toronto shop. Laurie was celebrating her 45th birthday by treating herself to some new inlines skates. Throughout her twenty years of skating, her favourite pair of skates had always been her Rollerblade Aeroblade's, which were her second pair of skates. Since those skates, she got away from the plastic boot with smaller wheels and into a softer boot with bigger 90mm wheels. She never quite got comfortable on her newer skates and admits to leaving them in the closet for extended periods of time because they were't fun to skate on. She missed the experience she had before and wanted to get a skate that would feel similar to her Aeroblades, if not better.
When the sun is shinning and the boys are up early you know a skate session is brewing.
With coffee's in hand and anti rockers rumbling we set out to get some clips on a spot not too far from Danny and Taylor's house. The nice thing about this particular spot was that some local skateboarders must have anticipated a crew of rollerbladers would want to hit the spot because the crack before the approach to the jersey barrier was filled in. This allowed for easier access to the ledge and of course more advanced inline maneuvers.
