On Sunday August 7, 2011 the second annual A-Town Stomp occurred. A few days before everyone anticipated a newly acquired ditch spot that had been built for the event but, that turned into a bust with police. So the meeting spot was changed to Atlanta's newest outdoor skatepark Fourth Ward which proved to be a not so bad Meeting/Warmup spot.
The first spot was this stair rail handicap rail. The car I happened to be in get to the spot first and as soon as I got there I started to set my camera up b/c I knew this rail was about to be destroyed. One person that stands out in my head is Yannes Sootes who recently moved out to Marietta, GA from NY. As soon as he got out of the car and strapped his skates on he showed that he was a force to be reckon with. Highlights he had were Topacid to True Acid cab out and Topsoul to soul to AO topsoul. Another person who really skated hard at the first spot was Arsenio Patterson. For those that don't know Arsenio has been around for a while and showed that regardless how many recent edits you have seen of him he still has it. Some highlights he had were backroyale to Truesoul cab Backroyale, and also Topsoul to truesoul back to topsoul. But, with those tricks Daniel Henderson came out and delivered with what may possibly be the longest back Pudslide ever done which ultimately I think got best trick.
Spot two was a spot I had always wanted to go to but, just never had the opportunity it's called M.L.K. two blue line square rails that are small which create the possibility of amazing tricks. Don't let the smallness of the rail fool you because everyone who skated the spot had scrapes to prove it. As I heard someone say "The ground is like a cheese grater." Some highlights include Mark Wojda Ao topsoul cab out on the dumbest downledge ever simply put they are very steep and on top of that people were hitting it after coming off the first rail which made it to where they were going that much faster. Shane Thompson hit the first downledge with a crazy negative acid. Landon Jordan also showed he had skill with a backfast on the first set, a huge 180 over the second set and a nice laid out fakie backflip over the third set which was only six stairs by the way.
The final spot was super intense it was a disaster rail with a few other obstacles including a neck high down rail and a huge stair gap in which didn't phase me that you could gap it until Arsenio Patterson and Landon Jordan both had 180'd it Landon tried to 360 it and Arsenio tried about 6 times to 540 it both of which became unsuccessful. Daniel Henderson decided it would be tight to backroyale 270 out to forward the neck high down rail in which to hit hit you had to roll a sidewalk run through grass and plant your feet on another 4 foot sidewalk then jump up to this neck high rail. Everyone started to look at the disaster but, it was Chico Suave to try and hit it first and show everyone it was do-able. First try Chico was unsuccessful but, next try he landed a clean backfarv. Daniel Henderson decided he wanted a go at it and chose to backroyale it. But, the definite highlight of this spot was Shane Thompson with a disaster front unity.
After the contest was said and done everyone moved to Jack's Pizza & Wings to fill up on much needed food and beer. The Place didn't expect so many people so some people didn't get their order at all others waited 45 minutes to get a drink. In the end Jack's hooked it up with free food and all people had to pay for was drinks. Not only did they hook that up they gave everyone $10.00 Customer appreciation cards in which whenever you go back and bring that card $10.00 of your meal is free.
After a long deliberation between the Judges Daniel Henderson was crowned winner of A-Town Stomp Twothless with Arsenio Patterson in a close second and a tie between Mark Wojda and Shane Thompson.
After the prizes were given the place seemed to settle down and everyone had seemed to leave except for a few of us. At one point and time Daniel Henderson went to the bar to get a drink came back and told us this story how he put his wallet in his pants pocket but, both pockets had complete holes in them making it impossible for the wallet to stay in them. So we searched the bar for nearly an hour maybe more and K.J. had work the next morning and the wallet was nowhere in the pizza/bar/wings place. So we had to leave, the next night Daniel called me b/c I had told him I was making him a highlight tape of what he did at the contest so he could send it to Billy O'Neill and try to get into the NYC invitational. While talking to him I asked him if he ever found his wallet just to see if maybe someone turned it in or it was found after The pizza place closed. In the end it was found in the car that he rode in and was never in Jack's at all.
Thanks too everyone that attended the event

What’s up dudes
There was no “falling out” between K2 and I. The simple fact of the matter is they aren’t ready to invest in our sport. I was the only one doing everything for the Varsity skate, and my input would be taken and used sometimes, and sometimes it wouldn’t.
I would never know until I got the sample, which was very unpredictable at best. A long time ago, I told K2 that I would like to spend my career with them and improve their products along the way. My passion is obviously on wheels, but it also lies in the design and function of the products we use everyday as bladers.
I was told that we have no budget for a team, no budget for travel, and no money to help me stay as productive as possible. I was fine with that, believing we could really start something great by just blading and staying positive, and hopefully all of those things would fall inline eventually.
The main reason I had to leave was because a person told me that I would not get design credit for aything, and that an option for a “pro skate” wasn’t an option.
In my head I figured if they can’t pay me to design, communicate, skate, and progress the brand, then if I got a pro skate it would give me an opportunity to make some royalties the good old fashioned way……by skating for it. Not to mention that it would have been after the new varsity release, and I could have probably made final corrections fixing whatever they left out in the black Varsity (which is a lot).
I was denied, and offered 4k for the whole year, with no pro skate, no advertisements, and only one event to travel to. It isn’t the money for me, and it never has been. It’s about the support I can get to Blade, improve rollerbladers experience, and hopefully progress our sport.
I’m happier now riding one of my best friends skates for nothing but the opportunity to make the pro team.
With that being said, I have only positive feelings from the experience because I know in my heart that K2 is better Now than it was before I got there, again. Even back in the day I tried, putting Dominic and Troy white on the team and helping them change color ways. I even asked for a pro skate back then. I appreciate the opportunity, and I met some really nice/talented people there while I was working on the skate.
I wish nothing but the best for them and their families. I just wish they thought about it a little more, or at least thought about it as a group, meaning not just one person trying to get work and everything from me for as little as possible, and not giving me any credit for it if I did. The decision on whoevers part, to offer me little for a whole lot of work without credit was premature and short sighted. Not as a whole company but as one individual that probably thought he was doing something good for his employer.
Guys, I’ve been in the trenches trying to establish a solid situation for a while now. Its time I put my head down and just focus on what we all started off doing and loving, BLADING. I appreciate all of your love and support as I make my comeback to the sport I never should have taken a break from. I always watched and thought about it when I thought I had to work a normal Job the rest of my life. I never truly felt at home working a 9-5, no matter how well I did.
So my friends, This is the year of THE COMEBACK.
I plan on releasing several online edits this year with our sports best videographers, leading up to my full comeback section later in the year. As much as I hate the idea of it, I’m gonna make a Facebook fan page so I have a platform to show and tell you all what I’ve done and what is on deck. My fans and friends (same thing), have really been an inspirational and motivating part of my life. Especially now, just when I thought I was done. You have all helped me realize that its JUST THE BEGINNING……
Peace and Love to all Bladers, I hope to inspire you!

Here's the second State of Mind Webisode of the season: Wild (Woodward) West State of Mind. Some of you may know that I grew up rollerblading. Ya ya fruitbooter! ;) All jokes set aside, I really did love it and feel as though it's helped me become the skier I am today.
Last summer, my girl Ashley Battersby and I rolled out to Woodward West in Cali on some windy days to get some foam pit action going. We had a blast, check it out!
Right now I'm shredding in Mammoth getting ready for X, next webisode coming soon, stay tuned!

CITYHOPPER is a video project starring Sven Boekhorst. This project features a documentary part, CITYHOPPER+, and a hardcore skatepart. All in the name of testing out the new SB pro model skate by Rollerblade. The test started small but evolved into a big project with several stunts in different cities. Sven did stunts on highly recognizable locations like the Dam Square and the Red Light District in Amsterdam, the Erasmus bridge in Rotterdam, and at the PSV stadium in Eindhoven.
This project was filmed and edited by Remy Cadier and Axel Van Dijk.

Powerblading goes along with pureblading. The first day on my powerblade set-up felt like home right away. I truly feel like every blader out there should have a powerblade set-up in order to enjoy skating at is fullest. I felt a new kind of freedom with them. I relearned to enjoy skating itself. Just the feeling of rolling around became fun again. I had only 5 days with them for this Edit but I know that there are so many things that can be done with these bad boys on. Welcome to this place where the word "Rolling" finds its meaning. Peace

Quinn Feldman Chosen Few Profile from ACHOSEN-FEW.COM on Vimeo.
I have spent 2 and a half years working on this on and off. I thought it was going to be my last standard definition video but because of serious injuries I had to mix it up a bit. I wanted to release it before the new year and start fresh for 2012.
The last 2 and a half years have been quite a ride. I didn't start Chosen Few to make money. I started it because I wanted to contribute to the sport I love. I wanted to put on events and competitions that bring skaters everywhere together and allow new skaters to have a chance at being recognized. I started it because I wanted my friends and I to have something to represent how we like to skate. I started it to acknowledge and give opportunities to the laundry list of talented bladers that exist in the world. I started Chosen Few to help skating reach out to the mainstream and get rollerblading the money it deserves. I started ACHOSEN-FEW.COM to promote and expose the sport I have dedicated my life to. I do truly love it. If I were the only blader on the planet I could still go out everyday and hit a rail with a smile on my face.
Track list is in order in the credits.
"Hope Dies Last" teaser from Alex Beaupre on Vimeo.
"Hope Dies Last" is a rollerblading video that I have been working on for the last two years (due to school, work and life becoming more complicated). This is my senior and final effort. Featuring profiles on Chris Couture, Tony Barrios, Cody Boulay and Jon Fromm. As well as skating from Jake Cawley, Eric Laban, Brian Weis, Garret Mitschelen and many more. Hopefully this gives you a little taste on what we have been up to here in the mitten. Thank you.
