Love all the donations/contributors to the TWBM, especially Scottie Bee for these mint "corn husker hybrids" skates. Impact 300's (1997) + Dave Kollash pro frames for his pro skate by Razors (1998).

"Fasten one wrench to the inside of each frame. Senate Wrenches and your plastic frames will wear into a groove with a flush metal and plastic surface. This is ideal for street skating. At Senate we dont make products we hope you will buy, we make products we know we can use. Remember, if you're not on metal grind plates, you're not grinding! Original $enate wrenches made at BK Brian Konoske dad's shop, hand packaged at Spohn Ranch with artwork by Arlo Eisenberg 1993. #blademuseum #bladinghistory #grindplates

Here's a clip from Fox news on being a mentor for my "little brother" Sean Cowen. Dude was such a ripper, was lucky enough to work with so many years. He even received a scholarship from Hank Aaron "Chasing the Dream" foundation for me to work with him. #blademuseum #bladinghistory #inline #gorollerblade #inlineskating @gorollerblade

Day 17 of #30yearbladechallenge 2004. "WILL JUDGE...CAN TRAVEL". Shanghai Showdown for the opening of the SMP skatepark (the worlds largest) was a amazing stressful ride. Received the invitation a few days before the contest by World Cup skateboarding with a referral by Chris Fowler. Went to get a rush visa in L.A. at the Chinese Consulate and found out they were closed the next day for a holiday and my oppurnuting was done because i needed to get on a flight the following day. Made a few calls and got hooked up with an "insider" who set up an after hours pick up at the Consulate. Met a guy there at 10pm at night who opened the building in the dark and stamped my visa, for a few hundred extra dollars and made the trip!!! Got real nervous when I landed in China and was heading to customs, my visa worked ...it was allgood😁😁😁 #blademuseum #bladinghistory #inlineskating #inline #gorollerblade

Day 10 of my #30yearbladechallenge 1997. "Hey mom I'm on the cover of the Rolling Stone" not quite but this was my one and only cover shot. Skate Magazine from Deutschland shot in Zurich Switzerland after the Nescafe Zuri In-line in October,1996. Didnt quite understand that the photo shoot hand been hand picked out by Michael Reusse previously with the neon lights & long exposure film. It was raining and we had just finished dinner & numerous beers when they asked are you ready to go? Unity magazine from England came out to Venice Beach to stay at the Hardline House for 2 weeks.

Day 8 of my (post from last night didn't upload) #30yearbladechallenge 1995. Started off the year going to Atlanta Super Show for Bauer where Tom Hyser and myself had a head to head contest/demo. Signed with N.I.S.S. to tour around for the entire summer. Couldn't compete in any other contest ASA/x games (kinda of a bummer in hind sight). Signed with Power Bar after the 1st N.I.S.S. in Miami. They sent my contact to the hotel in New York stop 2 of the tour (pretty cool touch). The photo from the poster was shot underneath the Bay Bridge San Francisco side. Knocked out my front teeth later that day doing a Power Bar demo during San Francisco N.I.S.S. good times!

Day 7 of #30yearbladechallenge 1994. Definitely the biggest & most paramount year for me ever! Received the invite in June after I had graduated from high school that a professional inline skate series N.I.S.S. - National Inline Skate Series would like me to come to California in late July to try out for the 1st professional inline skating tour ever. I drove out with Ralf Koch & Dion Roldan with no place to stay and we all made the tour. Had to get apartment and make ends meet somehow, we had one chair in the living room and remember sitting on the floor when the call came in that they picked me and Dion for the Taco Bell (official sponsor) & wanted us to be in the commerical advertising the tour that would air on ESPN 2. Ended up in 15th overall after the 6 stop series, making lifetime brothers and being apart of the BIG BANG/"lightning in a bottle"that some call the glory days. Here is the commercial hope you enjoy🤓🤓🤓 #blademuseum #gorollerblade #inlineskating #tacobell

23 years ago N.I.S.S. was on ESPN 2 before the x-games. Here is a commercial for it. Enjoy😁😁😁
