Thanks to all of our readers and supporters for yet another successful year of Be-Mag! We are proud that this year marked our 30th anniversary issue as well as the relaunch of our website. We are optimistically looking into 2009 and will support and push rollerblading again as much as possible from our side.
Our mission is clear; we want to connect people all over the globe, give them the exposure they deserve and continue to make our scene stronger. To celebrate the end of the year we are coming out with yet another fully packed issue. The headliner is Mr. Brian Shima, one of the most influential skaters out there, who shows us how much one single skater can achieve.
Austin Paz is holding it down for the East Coast and giving us an insight into his projects. Austin is truly multi-talented and dedicates his life to rolling. Props to that!
The Empire crew flew to Japan to spread their love of rolling and to connect with the Japanese skaters. Back in the States, Murda has been holding it down in Philly. Additionally we have been following Ignition's tour to the Balkan to find new talent, friends and spots. We also teamed up with our friends from Hey Dude Video Magazine to show you their latest adventures in the wonderful world of inline videography. Enjoy this issue of Be-Mag, and read on to the guest editorial by none other than the infamous Mr. Jon Elliott.
