8th Wonder was my first section in a real video. I still remember what it was like staying at Justin’s house on the weekends and cruising all around the bay area to simply skate and get tricks on tape. No sponsors, no obligations and no agenda other than having fun.
Being 15 years old, all I wanted to do was skate and all Justin wanted to do was film me (and others) skating. Back in those days it was all about the group session and that’s how a lot of the stuff was filmed. You could always count on some of your friends skating the spots with you, and getting you juiced to land tricks.
I was always pushing myself the most when skating with the older, and better dudes like Erick Garcia, Rob G, Vinny Minton, Jared Magers, Pat Lennen and more. Each time I watch this video, all I can think about is those non stop care free sessions with friends. It’s a nice reminder of the main reason I fell in love with blading and still do it after all these years. - Brandon Smith.

Foreword: History lesson 101. If you are reading this article in the future, maybe anti-rockers are making a comeback in rollerblading, maybe not, but somewhere, somehow, someone is still rocking them. Right now, in the year 2017, flat rockered setups are all the rage. Although a lot of this is opinion, it’s fair to say that riding flat will give the skater more speed, control and quicker turns. But what about the humble anti-rocker grind wheel? If you have never heard about grind wheels then let us enlighten you with the words that follow.
We take a trip back in time to 1993 to look at the first production anti-rockers; The Senate C-Notes and Bribes and why there was ever a need for a dedicated wheel for grinding in the first place. Which pioneers came up with such a unique concept and how they created the ultimate ‘game-changer’.
