Blading Cup 2019: We Are Generations
from butterTV on 7 Jan 2020
“Take this vibe we’re feeling right now and text a homie that hasn’t bladed in a while, start a monthly or weekly session. If two people show up and you post a picture, next week, four people show up. And if they need wheels, give them some used wheels. And pretty soon we’re gonna have regular sessions in cities all across the world—and the Blading Cup next year, which will be the tenth annual, could be even bigger!” — Matt Mickey
Santa Ana, California – November 1st-2nd, 2019. As a native from the northeast, Blading Cup truly is a destination weekend. Another year with two full days of skating in Downtown Santa Ana’s East End with 160 competitors from all around the world—21 countries to be exact however, what really made Blading Cup special this year wasn’t just about the global presence but the multiple generations that skated alongside one another. Those who started the culture, to the ones who took it to the next level, to the pros of today, and lastly, the next generation of enthusiastic skaters. It was an event filled with nostalgia and a good glimpse into the future. As always, big thanks to Jon Julio and co. for putting together another amazing event and huge shout out to everyone who was there.

Long Beach, California – February 9th, 2019. Shortly after following E.Rod around for an episode of Action Figures, which gives a very brief glimpse of his work and behind the scenes of his film Forever, the short journey came to a close at Tim Franken’s warehouse where the video was premiered as well as a box jam which was a bracket style competition that came down to a final four competing for cash prizes as well as other goods. Always a good time celebrating with everyone. Cheers!
Action Figures: Erick Rodriguez – Bladergang Worldwide
from butterTV on 23 Sep 2019
Episode 3 – Erick Rodriguez has been putting in work for a very long time and is constantly delivering us content as well as soft goods. I’ve ran into E.Rod on several occasions during events and he’d always share what projects he was currently working on. After Blading Cup 2018 we made a quick stop over to Long Beach, California and spent two days to gain a little insight on his workflow and catch a short glimpse behind the scenes for the filming of his film titled “Forever.” A few months later we attended the premiere which also included a box jam at Tim Franken’s warehouse that had a prize package of cash and other goods. The turnout was great as well as the skating and everybody had an awesome time coming together to celebrate.
Currently, Erick is already finishing up on his next VOD project: “Crickets” which follows the gang through Mexico City and other locations around the world.
BPSO4: The Fourth Annual Boschi Pope Skate Off 2019
from butterTV on 4 Sep 2019
“Thank you to everybody for coming out today for the BPSO4… I love y’all… be safe and everybody kill that shit!” – Boschi Pope
Four years strong: While the BPSO is still a young annual event, it brings alot of people together from all parts of the globe. The energy is still loud and crazy and the final round is still as chaotic as it was in it’s first year with spectators, filmers, and photographers never sure which way to look or point our cameras because the skaters are killing the spot from every direction. Lots of love to everyone that constantly collaborate to keep this event going and to everyone that shares the same amount of excitement as they do every year we all come together – Thank you! See you all next year for the homecoming. Cheers!
