These days Montre Livingston is one of the most celebrated bladers on Earth. Rightfully so! But back in 2009 he was still an emerging talent that had just landed the biggest score of his career when Brian Shima hand-picked him for the then-burgeoning Nimh.
To capture Montre ripping in his natural state, we sent long-time contributor John Haynes to Charlotte to shoot the pics for this interview. Turns out that wasn’t a pairing for the ages. But what we did get was a batch of hometown stunts by one of the most exciting bladers of our generation. So dig into this interview from ONE Issue #12 to get a taste for that sweet, sweet nostalgia.

Over ten years ago ONE Issue #2 went to print and inside was a feature interview with Alex Broskow. At the time he'd just filmed for The Meantime (full video), was skating on Roces skates, and I could be wrong but VX may yet have not received their cease and desist letter from naming their jeans the "James Dean".
But we didn't handle this one alone. Sitting in on the interview were Wes Driver, Corey Casey, and Adam Johnson. So much time and blade history has come and gone in the intervening years that the information and opinions Alex (and AJ) share in this discussion have both been incorporated into blading's underlying psyche while also being lost in our collective memories. But that's what makes #ThrowbackThursday so fun, because it's a great chance to dig up old content like this and share with audiences that may have never seen it before. [...]

When Jeff Dalnas wrapped filming and shooting for his 2016 ONE Blade Life here in San Diego, he offered up the not-all-too-uncommon “See you again soon.” Less than one year later we realize he meant it.
In March, Jeff flew himself to San Diego once again to do a “blade cation” while Sean Macgowan and Steve Steinmetz worked their shutters. The result is another freemium Blade Life photo + edit + interview capsule
, made possible by the hard work and determination of one of our generation’s longest-shredding bladers.
Respect to Jeff! Now strap in for another discussion about what makes this singular New England personality tick.
On April 9th, the San Diego Classic Street Contest was inaugurated in America’s Finest City. These are highlights we collected throughout the day. Visit Oneblademag.com
