Amall - Chapter '96 is coming to a close.

Chapter ‘96 is coming to a close.

After a long and very strong run a difficult decision was made to finally close the doors at Aggressivemall Q1 2018.

Aggressivemall from circa 2005 - 2013 became an absolute powerhouse, being the world’s #1 Aggressive Skate shop, featuring an incredibly strong team, workforce, and brand. We worked with the best in an incredible scene and undoubtedly created products and collaborations that will be sought after long after Amall’s doors are closed. We changed the landscape of the skate shop world by offering service that was far and above, from policy to product photos, unmatched stock to skate customization. We created events and sessions for our local scene, and taught people around the world with our trick tips. We set the standards for all other shops to follow. On top of all that we contributed heavily to your many projects, videos and contests in hopes to make skating as a whole stronger and more professional.

Our decision to close was not an easy one to make, and many factors were at play, but we also had to be real about the situation and look at the numbers. It just didn’t make sense for this particular business model as we could no longer offer the service, support and options we built the brand upon.

While this chapter may be coming to a close, we are left with so much to be thankful for. Skating made us who we are today. It taught us many things, brought us many places and introduced us to lifelong friends throughout the years. From building relationships, our own products, and multiple brands. It should come as no surprise we ran a successful business. We were dedicated and passionate about the business aspect just as much we were to the skating. The two together forged us and taught us to be resourceful and creative - Know that we are not down and out. We are honored to have served the community, and we can’t thank you enough for your support for last two decades. Our torch has burned incredibly strong, but the time has come to put it down. We sincerely hope the next generation picks it up and runs stronger than ever.

Sincerely, Justin Hertel - President. Aggressivemall 1996 - 2018.

50/50 - Some Exciting News (2018) by Lawrence Ingraham

50/50 - Some Exciting News (2018) by Lawrence Ingraham

I got back into blading in 2016 after taking 12 years off. Now I’m hooked, skating every weekend and sharing videos to help motivate people to come back to blading.

I was one of the owners of 5050, the skate company that helped create the frame market. I never realized how much of an impact 5050 made to the sport and how much I miss it today.

Last summer I started chatting with my old friend and 5050 founder Jess Dyrenforth about the possibility of bringing it back. He dug through old emails and got me in contact with the original frame manufacturer.

After months of mould testing, I got a set of 5050 Balance frames, fresh from the factory. Here they are, brand new 5050 balance frames complete with Juice Blocks, fresh from the factory. I’m gonna skate them for the next few weeks to make sure they’re good, then if you’re interested, I’ll let you know where you can order your own set. - Lawrence Ingraham.

Roces Is Back

Fri, Feb 9, 2018
Roces Is Back

Dear all,

We are excited to announce, that the moment has come which we have looked to so long: Roces itself wants to dive again into the water of street/ aggressive skating. We feel positive sensations and buzz around the scene and on the top of this Roces considers street/ aggressive skating as the most important component of the brand DNA and heritage. As you probably already became aware of from the social networks, the partnership with Jon Julio has come to an end. We want to thank him and everybody for 15 years of pleasant Roces-Valo cooperation and now let’s move on and look at the future.

Roces is now working on a new street/ aggressive skate range and you will get exciting updates soon. At the same time, we understand the importance of supporting riders and local heroes and this is why a new promotional plan is on the table.This world is still the beating heart of the skating imagery, it is still the electric impulse and the spectacular ingredient of what we all call “inline skating”.

All you need is to roll! Take care and keep well. - Roces
