Shop-Task Profile

header_bg.gif

Leon Basin, one of the owners of Shop-Task, has put up a shop profile on Youtube to explain to people why Shop-Task was created and what it is providing the rolling scene today. The profile is well made and provides a lot of information for people still wondering who Shop-Task is. Along with the explanation you also get to see some old and recent clips of Leon skating and laying down hammers, which is always exciting to watch. If you have subscribed to Task-TV, you already know that this video was created, but if you haven’t subscribed I suggest you do so, because Shop-Task tries to connect with their customers in many ways, media being one of them. So you can subscribe to Task-TV HERE, and watch the profile HERE.

On a personal note, I would like to let Shop-Task know that I respect what they are accomplishing in rolling today and the fact that they are trying to reach their customers on many different levels.

More Tours

28 06 2007

The leaders in the rolling industry are pushing hard this year to get our life style on peoples radar. I have already posted up links to the Mountain Dew tour, but that is only the tip of the ice berg. When I stopped by the Empir3 distribution site I was struck with the Valo tour, which focuses on mainly European countries with all the Valo pro’s and guest Brandon Smith.

Then I dropped by The Conference website and saw yet another tour, with Canadian pro Richie Eisler as a guest rider. This Tour is called the Illusion Tour and has its own myspace page at www.myspace.com/Illusion_tour . Needless to say, if you close to any one of these events and have a chance to participate and spread rolling around the globe, I suggest you take the opportunity given to you. I know this is mainly a Canadian Rolling site, but still spreading our life style around the world can only benefit the whole industry, including Canada, in the long run.

Well the Popularity Contest was finished yesterday and there is already tons of media on the event. Brandon-Smith photography has put up a rather large picture set of the whole event that is definitely worth checking out with its many life style and skating photos. Here is a taste of some photos from the site, (which I take no credit for at all). You can check out all the photos HERE.

Well the day is here and the Popularity Contest is going down in Kamloops B.C. I hope everyone who could make it out to the event did and that everyone has a great time. What everyone is looking at here is the trophy for the Pop Contest that will be awarded to the winner. Respect goes out to the sponsors who made this event happen especially the SOL Crew guy and Leon from Shop-Task.
