DIGITAL ISSUES
ONE DIGITAL V.3
The third installment of ONE Digital is here, packing more content than ever — clocking in at a hefty 94 pages of all-new, totally FREE blade media.

From our sunny base in San Diego the ONE network of contributors delivers the goods from Melbourne, Pretoria, Montreal, Santa Ana, New York City, Nashville, Essex, and countless destinations in between — capturing important moments in blading from around the world.

Whether Jeff Stockwell shooting photos of pros at the Blading Cup, or Brandon Smith on a mission to Mt. Baldy, or Hayden Golder shooting with a German in Australia, or Jon Fromm blading his way through South Africa, Digi v.3 represents a cross section of the blade talent stretched across the globe, and serves as a reminder that through blading we come together as a community.

Now, more than ever, blading should be bringing bladers together, not pushing them apart. ONE Digital is a celebration of the inclusive and collaborative nature of rollerblading, and this issue is dedicated to all the contributors who make it possible. We couldn’t do it without you.

ONE Blade Awards [2013]
Written by ONE Staff - Published on Wednesday, December 18th, 2013
2013 has been an important year for blading. If nothing else, it will be remembered as the year skaters sank their claws into a new grassroots movement and proved that hard work and determination are suitable stand-ins for financing. It’s a year young voices became louder, scenes became stronger, and the fabric of blade culture became richer.

It’s the year social media took over message boards, former bladers returned in droves, and companies with a clear vision that stayed their course pulled away from the pack.

For all these reasons and more, we decided that simply naming a sole individual Skater of the Year and calling it a wrap just would not do.

So at the suggestion of Frank Stoner, a new tradition was born — the ONE Awards.

After carefully considering a list of categories — benchmarks of our growth and development as a community — we invited a select group of ONE contributors, supporters and critics to participate in an entirely open nomination process to select the TOP THREE contenders for each category.

Once that was done, it was time to vote on the TOP THREE nominees for each category. And with voting closed and final results tallied, we are proud to announce the winners of the first-ever ONE Blade Awards.

Crashed Iced: Off-Season & Off-Road
Written by ONE Staff - Published on Tuesday, December 10th, 2013

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 Training Track.

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?

Jon Cooley: Kill The Body
Written by ONE Staff - Published on Friday, December 6th, 2013
Hey John, how was another summer spent on crutches? We were super bummed when we heard you got jacked at WCR.
Yo, what’s up Justin. As far as crutches, it wasn’t too bad. I spent my whole junior year of high school on them so I’m pretty used to the whole routine.

Quickly, can you run down the injuries you’ve taken in the name of pushing yourself on blades?
Ha ha, here are a few that stick out:

Fractured C7 in my neck
Dislocated my ankle through my fibula and they both broke (right leg)
Scalped the top of my head nearly all the way off
Fractured a wrist or two along the way
And now a broken fibula on my dominant left leg

Blading Cup 2013: Perfect Day

What’s your perfect day? Does it include blades, buds, and good times? Maybe seeing some of the best bladers in the world shred a custon-made course, and watching progression take place right before your eyes? Then if you missed Blading Cup 2013 you missed out on a good one. But we’re here with another chop featuring extra clips from Jonathan Labez and others we couldn’t jam into our Quick Cut edit. So sit back and take a walk on the wild side in this off-beat look at a quality day in Santa Ana.

Featuring in order of appearance: Alex Broskow, Chris Farmer, Richie Eisler, Winston Wardwell, Dean Coward, John Bolino, Howie Bennet, Mike Obedoza, Soichiro Kanashima, Dre Powell, Russell Day, Demetrios George, Monte Livingston, Kruise Sapstein, Becci Sotelo, Michael Froemling, Jeff Stockwell, Tim Franken, Victor Arias, and David Sizemore.

ONE DIGITAL V.2
The second issue of ONE Digital is now live.
We said we’d do it, and we did — another all-new, totally FREE, 80-page blade mag that you can access anywhere in the world on any digital device that connects to the internet.
We like to call that progress.
This issue is exciting in many ways. First, it’s got a heavy dose of variety. There’s Chris Haffey boosting on the Nitro Circus Giant-A-ramp, Alex Burston shredding the streets in his UK hood, Michael Collins back on blades and staying fresh, the full-on Americana blading of Boise’s Erik Bill, a long-overdue check in with pioneer Dave Kollasch on life and the evolution of blading, and so much more.
And secondly, working in this medium has some unexpected rewards. Here’s how we described them in the Digi v.2 LETTER:


Since publishing Digi v.1 it’s been interesting to watch the statistics trackers and see the far-off places that have checked in to check out ONE. Places like Myanmar, Iraq, Vietnam…
I guess the overall theme here is that blading is bigger and more diverse than any message board idiot or anonymous troll can ever really know. Blade Life spans the globe and infiltrates where it’s least expected. Whether that’s Chris Haffey representing like a boss on the Nitro Circus Live tour, or pulling together a scene in your town, blading lures us to the streets and shows us true friends.
It helps us pay attention to the details — the minutia of the urban world that so many take for granted, and skews our perspectives on safety and risk. Teaches us perseverance and how to overcome obstacles.





But more important than any of that is what blading gives us all, and that is something to do. Some way to differentiate yourself from the surroundings and make a choice to try something outside of the mainstream. It’s a secret handshake or the right knock on the right unmarked door. It’s something that you and I have that not so many other people do. And that’s their loss, our gain, and an opportunity for even more folks to discover blading.”
