    I think the only bladers getting paid are the ones who skate the comp tours.

    I often wonder if the only pro's being paid anything more than a quid or something are the pros on Razors or USD, if that. Even pro skateboarders hardly get paid. You have to be a big name to start with like Chris Joslin or PJ Ladd to get paid enough to live off. I dont dare imagine how hopeless it is to be a pro rollerblader.

    I think Martin was pretty cool for the AM team, and for sure was getting better and better. But I guess he was expecting more from that relationship... As for that comment about Yuto on Thems - I doubt that very much. I'm interested in that announcement though, I'm not sure whether it's a UK skater as they're in the UK when they're announcing the new rider. If it is I suspect it's probably Leon Humphries.

    Says the dude who puts #GoJoe on all his shit. Sorry for correcting things when you’d rather have your circle jerk fantasies. Maybe go fuck yourself

    Martins skating has matured quite a bit, after putting 908s on his feet.

    Reading the bit about Roces focusing more on the Pro team than the Am team and acting like that’s some irregularity worth even mentioning is pretty...lul. Not only that, but if Martin felt somehow wronged by that it’s even funnier.

    I mean, yeah, I can’t spill the beans on specifics because it’s not my place to do so, but I wanted to put it out there that what you and the other guy said are either wrong or not the full story.

    I just realised - is this the first an AM has notified everyone that they're leaving a team publicly.

    What team wouldn’t focus on their pro team over their am team? Lmao isn’t that kind of exactly what any logical person would expect? There’s also A LOT you’re leaving out here, but I guess that’s to be expected and it’s shit that I unfortunately can’t expand upon.

If LEVI will follow and also quits ROCES it will be even greater loss - the kid is on fire right now and his potential is huge.

    Literally the only thing Martin had going for him was being “young”-er than your average blader. I’m not sure how you see him leaving as some big tell all sign.

    You couldn’t be more wrong about the reasons Martin “left”.

    That was kinda my point I don't see Yuto going anywhere. Bobi on the other hand… I think he's amazing, but I still wouldn't class him as 'pro'. But yeah I agree with your other point - I really like the Roces team.

    They look similar but Levi is way better. Levi has had two pro skates (yes from Adapt but still). He deserves a spot on the pro team if he stays there. They still have a solid team. If they lost Yuto or Bobi, then Stefan or Grant could bump up to pro, they do a great job or representing the brand.

    I feel like Nils is the "Face" of Roces right now. I also feel like Yuto will leave- to where? I'm not sure.

    I\d love to know more about this as Martin was a good am, he was young and had a good reach and was getting better and better?

    So yeah the Pros are Nils, Yuto and Bobi right now. And I agree Levi is a shredder. It's funny though as him and Martin look very similar when they're skating… maybe that had something to do with it? And the ams: Chad, Grant, Stefan, Levi and loads of italian dudes.

    It also appears that Elliot Stevens isn't on the AM team anymore either. He was skating some Thems recently.

    I was supporting Roces as they kinda felt like the underdog… but there's a bit of shadiness going over there.

    My mistake, I somehow read that as "Jansons" even while i was typing it. I'm a moron.

    Ok so what did Martin say?

    They still have a solid team especially if Levi is still on it, he's one of the best skaters on that team.

    started a topic Roces...

    Roces...

    Well, Martin Danning dropped them, I thought he was kinda killing it with his skating, and being young and all. Not surprising though, looks like Julio might have been right about all that Roces business shit, while also being wrong about VALO. Who's the next to leave, I can't imagine Nils dropping, as they pay him in euro and he lives in Latvia, and I'd say the same for Yuto, as he seems pretty disconnected from the industry blade game, and may be too polite anyhow. Who's left; Chad, Stephan, and?

    I also find it funny that I can still find Martins' comments bad mouthing Joe for leaving the team under completely reasonable circumstances.
