The Long Game

August 7th, 2014 by Radsac

Everyone these days wants instant satisfaction or gratification with the least amount of work possible.

The thing is that you can’t get really good at something over night. You have to put in the work day in and day out. You have to be in it for the Long Game.

We want you to be the best rollerblader that you can be and that requires time. Think about how many hours of skating the pros have put in to achieve their greatness?

So the next time you are frustrated with your progress, say to yourself, “Maybe I can’t land this trick today but since I’m in the aggressive rollerblading Long Game, I know I will eventually be able to stick it.”

Here is a quick video that explains the Long Game:

We Love Mondays

August 4th, 2014 by Radsac

Nolte loves Mondays.

Even after a weekend full of rollerblading, come Monday Nolte is at the shop bright and early getting things rolling smoothly. He knows how to start the week off right because he has made the proper preparations.

Are you ready for the skate sessions this week? Come next weekend are you prepared to take full advantage of the long skating days?

Love Mondays like we do and attack the week with full velocity and handle your business.

None of this, “My skates are broke but I can’t fix them or get new ones because my pockets are broke.”

Need a boost? We’ve got a new package deal to help you roll smooth and roll clean with all of your stuff strapped to your back. It even comes with a free bar of wax to replace the one that got left behind at the skate spot the other day.

Things are looking real good this Monday.

Throw Your Very Own Summer Skate BBQ

August 1st, 2014 by Radsac

Dre developed the Amall Meat Up because he likes to get rollerbladers together for skating, socializing and good ol’ food. We’ve had a total of 12 successful Meat Ups over a 1 year span. Dre is looking forward to the 13th one (to be determined) because he has a special affinity for the number.

drebbq.jpg

Since we can only hold our Meat Ups around the California Bay Area, we highly encourage you to throw your own summer skate BBQ’s if you are not already. Here are a few pointers:

-Let everyone know far enough in advance. None of this,

“Hey brah we should throw a BBQ today at Noon.”

“Dude it’s 3 pm.”

-It’s much easier if you keep the food simple but if you want to go nuts and offer a 5 course meal for folks, I don’t think anyone will complain. Street tacos are easy. Hot dogs are easy. Too much money? Supply just the BBQ and encourage folks to bring their own meat or veggies.

-NO ICE CREAM. I can’t stand it when all of the local scooter kids spill their ice creams all over the skate park. Don’t join them.

-Coolers and ice work great to keep your road soda’s cold. No one likes a warm C- except maybe Mickey Avalon.

-Pop up tents are great and folks will appreciate the shade.

-Camping chairs are nice to sit on under the pop up tents.

-Put your own unique spin on the summer skate BBQ idea. There are no rules here. If you want to have a pinata then go for it. If you want it to have an 80s theme then break out the neon.

-Music is great. Whether you have a jam box or a boom box, folks like to feel the groove.

-Lastly have a fun, enjoyable time. Whiners and complainers need not apply.

Let us know how your summer skate BBQ goes! @Aggressivemall on Instagram.

Sun Protection for Rollerbladers

August 1st, 2014 by Radsac

For the most part I try not to wear any sunscreen because I just don’t feel that my skin needs to absorb all of those nasty chemicals into my blood stream. At the same time I am not looking to be a free advertisement for Red Lobster every time I am outdoors all day long.

My solution?

Hats. Everyday of my life.

I’m not sure why Razors and Ground Control took so long to get into the hat game but the good news is that it’s never too late to do anything in life (except become an astronaut or fighter pilot… sorry OMH; there is still time to get abducted by aliens though) and they finally made it to the small table of companies that want to give bladers some good looking items to wear on their heads.

Amall Trick Tips: Favorite Switch Ups

July 31st, 2014 by Radsac

Dre just told me that he was a big fan of social media because it allows us to easily share our trick tips to rollerbladers around the world (at least to those countries without internet censorship). He is also a huge fan of switch ups and was happy to see that we opened up our trick tip videos to include switch ups for you to learn.

Possibly the biggest tip to learning switch ups is to skate as much as possible. The guys and gals who put on their blades 4-5 times a week will enjoy a constant skill progression that comes to those who put in the hard work.

Below are a few samples from our switch up trick tips but please check out our Aggressivemall YouTube Channel if you want to view them all along with other great aggressive skating clips.

Dre delivers just the tip for you, with a little motivation from Bruce Lee:

Amall team rider Victor Arias has the smoothest switch ups and style:

New MTN DVSN Backpacks: Panther Pack and Rucksack

July 30th, 2014 by Radsac

MTN DVSN just air dropped their new backpacks in 4 colorways a few weeks ago and we’ve been field testing them with so much enjoyment that we forgot to update the blog. The nice dudes at MTN DVSN decided to blow the competition out of the water and release both their newly designed Panther Pack and an updated version of their tried and proven Rucksack.

I have literally used my MTN DVSN Rucksack everyday since I picked it up during the first release and it has been the best backpack that I have owned in my life. In fact it has been so durable that I don’t even need to try their new packs but I can’t help myself when I find a product that truly works good! Civilian folks (civis) ask me all the time if they can check out my backpack because they’ve been searching for one like it.

The search is over. (Click here or on the pictures for complete descriptions, details, features and pictures)

I’ll go ahead and say it: Jordan is played. Everyone wants be like the OLD king of air, Michael Jordan. The thing is, there is a new king of Flight in town, and he doesn’t play for the Bulls.

Chris Haffey has always been called superman for the crunk ass tricks that he has thrown down on his blades, but this time, he is legitimately flying through the air like le man de steele.

These stunts are by no means an accident. He did not “get lucky” landing these. This wasn’t a fluke sesh were he was feeling the juice.

Dude has the skill.

Besides the immense amount of practice and dedication that goes into learning and perfecting these tricks, you have to make sure that your equipment game is real strong.

That being said, we present the Chris Haffey Park Pack.

Chris Haffey Park Pack. Eulogy Wheels. Bones Swiss.

The Park Pack features a set of 4 Eulogy Chris Haffey 58mm 88a wheels as well as a set of 8 Bones Swiss Bearings. Both of these are considered the best in their respective field. This combo only runs $69.95 and you can get it shipped out for about the same price as a double double with fries and a drink. Peep game right over here.

Chris Haffey Eulogy Wheels

They 58mm profile ensures maximum speed while the 88a hardness gives a smooth ride as well as that crucial grip mandatory for the high speeds.

Bones Swiss Bearings

The Bone Swiss Bearings have long had a well deserved reputation of being the best bearings available on the Market at a price that won’t force you to survive of thrown away tortillas and ramen noodles like a dumpster duck. With a little bit of care and maintenance, you can very easily get multiple years of use out of your Bones Swiss Bearings.

Chris Haffey Vibralux Jeans

While fashion is not nearly as important as your actual hardware, it might be time to toss your beat up, junker, stained to all hell thrift shop jeans and cop some of the brand new Chris Haffey Vibralux Jeans. Shit is madd player. Be sure to check them jams out right over here.

Cash Clip Switch Up Ganador!!!!!

May 7th, 2014 by NOT DRE

Well, the latest Cash Clip has come to an end. If you live in a shack in New Hampshire and don’t know what the Cash Clip is, I will break it down.

You have a month to submit one clip of our choosing. Winner gets 2 scundo. Muy simple, yes?

This month, the trick was one switch up. ONE. Not two, one. In the interest of clarity, let me further explain. Topsoul to Frontside is A OK! That is only one switch up.

Here is the promo shot that we made for the contest. Just a bunch of examples of what was considered to be a legal entry.

This month’s Cash Clip was rather different from the ones of month’s prior since the contestant was able to select the trick as well as the spot.
This month’s winner was…(drumroll)

logan-clark-winner.jpg

His trick was unheard of, literally. No one here has ever seen an AO Acid to Neg Porn. Shit was crunk, not to mention done oh so smoove. But don’t take my word for it, come peep it right here.

Hope yall stay tuned and peep the next installment of the Cash Clip.

Nils Jansons Pro Remz Skate. Yea, we got that.

May 2nd, 2014 by OLD MONEY

Power.

That’s the only way to describe Nils Jansons skating. Pure unharnessed power. In an era where going big is nearly frowned upon, this kid still goes big.

Real big.

Getting a pro boot from Remz is something that only a select few have achieved, and Nils definitely earned it.

Remz Nils Jansons Pro Skate - Aggesssivemall

These are going to be yours for only $319 and are available here.

A subtle black and white color scheme hides the actual innovations on this skates. Like the HR skates that came before this one, the Nils comes with the new True Balance souls which alleviate the strange lean that comes with all the older Remz skates. While you scuzz balls might like your sprite heavy on the lean, these skates come with none.
And then the liner

Remz Nils Jansons Pro Skate Liner - Aggressivemall

Subtle changes like improved materials coincide with bigger switches, like a lace up system as well as a hard plastic piece on the tongue to alleviate the pressure of the buckles around your ankle.

As we have seen, Nils goes big. This shock absorber reflects that.

Remz Nils Jansons Pro Skate Shock and Insole - Aggressivemall

This shock absorber is 12mm, about double the standard Remz shock size, the liner comes equipped with the famous yellow jug insole that I have been trying to steal from Shawn Storm for the last 4 years.

Long story short, you best get theses skates before the Ducks get pissed.

New Aragon 6 in stock now!!

April 30th, 2014 by OLD MONEY

Razors is back at it like a crack addict with their new Aragon 6 SL Pro Skates.

Razor Brian Aragon 6 Pro SL Skate - Aggressivemall

These skates feature a new skin that is beefed up (like so much Wellington) in key areas to help ensure that your skates don’t resemble the shredded pork sandwich that I am going to eat while watching the Kings roast the Sharks after budsing the skatepark for a bit with about 3 or 7 of my homies and maybe a couple of their friends if they get off work in time to hit the park with us before we shake to get the glorious pork sandos. (Was that a run on? Couldn’t tell)

But anywho…

These skates come with the brand spanking new Featherlite 3 frames, and they retail for $299. Follow le link to see the skates.

Oh, and boot only?

Yea, we got that.
