"This is not the rollerblading you came to see. At least for our regular readers it probably isn’t. There’s no grinding. There’s no street skating. Hell, there’s not even any “aggressive” skates.
Instead there’s three dudes throwing themselves down a custom-made
wooden race track in an Austrian forest that they call the Couch Garden
After posting the above edit on October 6th and ranking in over 150k views (YouTube & Vimeo), Luca Dallago,
one of the three skaters in the edit, hit us up to make sure we saw it
and to know what we thought. What followed was a crash course in Crashed
Ice, and lots of discussion about blading.
Finally we decided a proper interview was in order, so that’s what we have here.
And as I write these words, something becomes oh so clear. I can
guess where training facilities will turn up in the US, and it rhymes
with “schmoodmord.” Wouldn’t that be something?"
