The problem with skateshops // industry insights
from Thisissoul on 29 Mar 2020
Because of the resent pandemic our skate school has closed down entirely.
Nevertheless people seem to skate now more then ever and our skateshop is thriving! It is time to investigate the inner workings of a skateshop.
I will explain a few issues facing our industry and try to give solutions to them as best as I can.
In 2017 I was at a convention in Bulgaria to speak about a few topics.
The following recording was shot there.
I will talk about how a good shop-owner deals with investments and tries to showcase our culture as good as possible.
this video is a bit longer then usual and the audio is not always as good but there are just so many good points mentioned here that i just had to show it.
if you like video’s like this, consider subscribing to our channel and enjoy the clip.
I start off by showing a screenshot from the old school skate movie Dare to air where it shows Brooke, an icon in skating at the time wearing a special jacket.

London night skate on NEXT / KIZER Flux Trinity
from Powerslide Inline skates on 29 Mar 2020
Fast urban skating session at night through the city center of London, UK by Matty Vella. Freeskate setup of choice: Powerslide Next boots with 4x90mm Kizer Flux Trinity frames, 90mm UC wheels & Wicked bearings.
Filmed & edited by Rob Dalton.
Kizer Flux 2in1 Trinity frames – 800317 800318
The Kizer Flux is yet another masterpiece and shows Kizer advanced thinking. Now combining the best of all, Triskates, TRINITY and 4 wheels. So the Flux is a multifunctional frame, targeted to urban skating. Based on the most advanced frame technology TRINITY it will fit on any model coming with this frame system, from Powerslide Next to Zoom models. It is made so you can interchange 3 wheels as 3x100mm setups with 4×90 setups, so perfect setups which are fast but still agile and those wheel sizes you can rocker with the triangle shaped rocker spacer. This rocker spacer adjusts not only the height but also the length and puts you as low as possible to the ground. The frame is made out of nylon composite material, tough and ready to slide and grind out of the box and will guarantee endless fun. The front and rear wings make soul slides and stalls easy and will give skaters a lot of variations to blade the urban jungle. It features also a heel fin for soul grinds and connects aggressive and urban skating at its best.
