Warm Up Your Holidays with a Blanket Party

November 25th, 2014 by Kruns

It’s getting cold out there, so while some people want to hide away from the effects of global warming under a nice comfy blanket, we have something a little more sinister in mind.

If there’s someone in your crew who doesn’t blade in the winter, whether from the weather or from just being lame, we can help you get their priorities straight with a Blanket Party.

The premise is simple and one you may remember from Full Metal Jacket.

Since your grandma is going to knit you a blanket anyway, you’ve got most of your gear there. But it takes more than a blanket to party.

For $17.95, AMall will hook you up with a Blanket Party Pack, which includes a pair of Gawds socks and two blocks of wax.  The pack comes in short and long, depending on your arm length and velocity needs.

To get cranking, just drop the wax in the sock, shake it down to the bottom, and get cranking. While AMall in no way encourages violence in any way, we would like to remind you the liver is on the right side of the torso.

Or your could do everyone one step better and use those new socks to keep your feet warm while you blade and the wax to keep all your surfaces buttery smooth.

Don’t forget to check the site and your email inbox from some violently discounted goods this Black Friday shopping season.

The Boise Beast and His Brand New Blades

October 29th, 2014 by Kruns


In case you’ve been hanging out on the moon and didn’t already know, Aggressive Mall rider and all-around good guy Erik Bailey has received another pro boot from Valo.

Bailey’s latest skate is a tribute to his first pro boot, which came out in black and white color ways back in Valo’s infancy. Since then, the classic cut has been made into maroon, gray, and denim color ways, but Bailey, a man of classic taste, is going back to his first.

“That was my favorite of them all,” Bailey tells us. “I didn’t want it to be exactly the same.”

 

The Bailey 1.5 has a black leather skin, Valo two-piece souls, and other subtle updates to give new life to this classic blading look. Unlike other recent Valo pro skates, the EB 1.5 doesn’t use the carbon fiber shell and relies on the tried-and-true classic Valo boot.

“I think it’s cool because it lasts a long time,” he said.

The Idaho native is back in Boise after a month in Washington and New York, helping good friend and blade artist Kyler Martz with some exclusive pieces (Kyler also did the art for Bailey’s latest pro wheel from Eulogy).

 

While everyone waited to get theirs, Bailey has been collecting clips in his new skates in front of the lens of Ivan Narez. The dynamic duo brought you other great Bailey sections and clips in the last two Valo videos, Shred ‘Til You’re Dead I and II, and other projects.

“Ivan was in Seattle for nine days. We filmed the whole time, except for the few days it rained,” Bailey said.

The edit to accompany Bailey’s new boot is expected to premiere at the Blading Cup this weekend in Santa Ana, Calif.

Bailey will soon be en route for his fourth appearance at the Cup. Despite the fact he’s now old enough to qualify for the 30 and Over division, Bailey won’t be skating in it, but he’ll be judging the ol’ boys and blading with the pro boys.

“The older guys are probably the ones to watch,” Bailey said.

Besides filming for his new edit, Bailey’s been filming with Erik Bill for Snake River Special II, the second installment of the Idaho-centered scene. He’s also been filming with some Boise skateboarder friends.

“It’s really fun and that’s the point,” he said.

 

But don’t expect ol’ Bailes to hop on the VOD train just quite yet. He’s been enjoying the one’s he’s paid for, including Bolino, Broskow, and B. Free, but right now, he doesn’t have any plans for paid edits.

“Skating is one of those things where the edit is promoting the product,” he said. “If I were going to film something like that, I’d have to go out for a year.”

Right now, Bailey is having a blast being out on his blades, traveling around the country when he can, and finding a bit of new zeal about life.

“A lot of people talk about all the younger years, and I can’t relive them as an old man, but I’m finding a lot of new good times,” he said. “I’ve been skating more than every lately. I’m feeling really good.”

The EB 1.5 will be shipping out to pre-ordering AMall customers after we all return from the Blading Cup.

New Skates Direct from the Young Gawd

October 22nd, 2014 by OLD MONEY

It has been a while since our dear friend in Long Beach has had a new Pro skate, but the wait is almost over! The brand new USD Franky Morales Carbons are due to arrive any minute now! If “beneath a rock” is your permanent mailing address, Franky has been modeling his pro skates after his favorite sneakers.

His first model blew everyone away featuring an assortment of colors that seamlessly blended together to produce the most memorable skate of its time.

OLD Franky

His second model flipped the script on his first skates as he hit us with the subtle black highlights.

OH MAN

His newest skates come complete with brand new Clear Kizer Fluid 4 Frames. While your truespin topside tricks may not improve, your swagg is guaranteed to go up about 6 points on average. These frames come loaded with some fresh Gawds wheels and Antis so you know you will be rolling correct.

In all their glory, here are the new Franky’s.

USD Franky Morales Carbons

No Franky release be complete without an edit featuring that one park in the LBC. Without any further ado:

Like all USD Skates, these are extremely limited so be sure you pick these up while you can.

Don’t Count on Global Warming

October 15th, 2014 by Kruns

The Earth may be heating up rapidly, but that doesn’t mean winter won’t be too far away.

And since we’ve lost all that handy fur due to evolution (and most cities have anti-nudity ordinances), you’ll need something to keep your flesh covered. We can help you out with that.

New for fall, AMall some new sweatshirts to keep you looking good and feeling warm, whether you’re out shredding the streets or looking to tear it up at the club (or just stand in the corner because the crappy “DJ” is nothing but a chump with a laptop).

Starting out at $49, there’s the Inked Laurel Crew Neck.

But if you’re worried about your neck or ears getting cold, we’ve got you covered.

For $55 (Hey, hoods aren’t free), there’s the Inked Laurel Hoody, in Navy and Ash.

But if you prefer a zipper because you like quick access out of your clothes, there’s the Framed Zip Up Hoody for $55.

And if you need a quick Halloween costume, you can use the sweatshirts to go as Headless Nolte, a reference no one will get unless you wear it out in Santa Ana the night before the Blading Cup.

It’s Time to Talk to Your Doctor

October 9th, 2014 by Kruns

Have you been feeling a little off lately?

Have you experienced unexpected weight loss or weakness? Have your wounds been healing slowly?

Do you have pale skin or edema: a collection of water in your legs, feet, and ankles? Has it affected your blade game?

Have you been cranky, moody, depressed, anxious, or generally feeling like a huge, icy buster chump?

Those are all symptoms of protein deficiency. You know what has protein? No, not some unappetizing pinner soybeans.

MEAT! Come get some of it this Saturday at the Housewarming Meat Up beginning at 1 p.m. at the Redwood City Skatepark, at the back end of Red Morton Community Park in the heart of Redwood City. (Here’s a Google Maps link, so you have no excuses.)

Even if your subsidized Obamacare healthcare doesn’t cover your Cross Fit-branded protein shakes, all the meat you’ll need to get your leg strength back is covered by Aggressive Mall. That’s right, free beefy healthcare.

But don’t bring any buns. There’s tacos and sausages, but this is a bun-free environment. Besides, buns don’t have protein in them.

As far as your fat water-logged feet and pale skin, putting on your blades in that beautiful Redwood City sunshine should take care of that. And sunshine is full of vitamin D, which is good for depression and your general cranky mood.

You can thank us later.

The Long Game

August 7th, 2014 by Radsac

Everyone these days wants instant satisfaction or gratification with the least amount of work possible.

The thing is that you can’t get really good at something over night. You have to put in the work day in and day out. You have to be in it for the Long Game.

We want you to be the best rollerblader that you can be and that requires time. Think about how many hours of skating the pros have put in to achieve their greatness?

So the next time you are frustrated with your progress, say to yourself, “Maybe I can’t land this trick today but since I’m in the aggressive rollerblading Long Game, I know I will eventually be able to stick it.”

Here is a quick video that explains the Long Game:

We Love Mondays

August 4th, 2014 by Radsac

Nolte loves Mondays.

Even after a weekend full of rollerblading, come Monday Nolte is at the shop bright and early getting things rolling smoothly. He knows how to start the week off right because he has made the proper preparations.

Are you ready for the skate sessions this week? Come next weekend are you prepared to take full advantage of the long skating days?

Love Mondays like we do and attack the week with full velocity and handle your business.

None of this, “My skates are broke but I can’t fix them or get new ones because my pockets are broke.”

Need a boost? We’ve got a new package deal to help you roll smooth and roll clean with all of your stuff strapped to your back. It even comes with a free bar of wax to replace the one that got left behind at the skate spot the other day.

Things are looking real good this Monday.

Throw Your Very Own Summer Skate BBQ

August 1st, 2014 by Radsac

Dre developed the Amall Meat Up because he likes to get rollerbladers together for skating, socializing and good ol’ food. We’ve had a total of 12 successful Meat Ups over a 1 year span. Dre is looking forward to the 13th one (to be determined) because he has a special affinity for the number.

drebbq.jpg

Since we can only hold our Meat Ups around the California Bay Area, we highly encourage you to throw your own summer skate BBQ’s if you are not already. Here are a few pointers:

-Let everyone know far enough in advance. None of this,

“Hey brah we should throw a BBQ today at Noon.”

“Dude it’s 3 pm.”

-It’s much easier if you keep the food simple but if you want to go nuts and offer a 5 course meal for folks, I don’t think anyone will complain. Street tacos are easy. Hot dogs are easy. Too much money? Supply just the BBQ and encourage folks to bring their own meat or veggies.

-NO ICE CREAM. I can’t stand it when all of the local scooter kids spill their ice creams all over the skate park. Don’t join them.

-Coolers and ice work great to keep your road soda’s cold. No one likes a warm C- except maybe Mickey Avalon.

-Pop up tents are great and folks will appreciate the shade.

-Camping chairs are nice to sit on under the pop up tents.

-Put your own unique spin on the summer skate BBQ idea. There are no rules here. If you want to have a pinata then go for it. If you want it to have an 80s theme then break out the neon.

-Music is great. Whether you have a jam box or a boom box, folks like to feel the groove.

-Lastly have a fun, enjoyable time. Whiners and complainers need not apply.

Let us know how your summer skate BBQ goes! @Aggressivemall on Instagram.

Sun Protection for Rollerbladers

August 1st, 2014 by Radsac

For the most part I try not to wear any sunscreen because I just don’t feel that my skin needs to absorb all of those nasty chemicals into my blood stream. At the same time I am not looking to be a free advertisement for Red Lobster every time I am outdoors all day long.

My solution?

Hats. Everyday of my life.

I’m not sure why Razors and Ground Control took so long to get into the hat game but the good news is that it’s never too late to do anything in life (except become an astronaut or fighter pilot… sorry OMH; there is still time to get abducted by aliens though) and they finally made it to the small table of companies that want to give bladers some good looking items to wear on their heads.

Amall Trick Tips: Favorite Switch Ups

July 31st, 2014 by Radsac

Dre just told me that he was a big fan of social media because it allows us to easily share our trick tips to rollerbladers around the world (at least to those countries without internet censorship). He is also a huge fan of switch ups and was happy to see that we opened up our trick tip videos to include switch ups for you to learn.

Possibly the biggest tip to learning switch ups is to skate as much as possible. The guys and gals who put on their blades 4-5 times a week will enjoy a constant skill progression that comes to those who put in the hard work.

Below are a few samples from our switch up trick tips but please check out our Aggressivemall YouTube Channel if you want to view them all along with other great aggressive skating clips.

Dre delivers just the tip for you, with a little motivation from Bruce Lee:

Amall team rider Victor Arias has the smoothest switch ups and style:

I’ll go ahead and say it: Jordan is played. Everyone wants be like the OLD king of air, Michael Jordan. The thing is, there is a new king of Flight in town, and he doesn’t play for the Bulls.

Chris Haffey has always been called superman for the crunk ass tricks that he has thrown down on his blades, but this time, he is legitimately flying through the air like le man de steele.

These stunts are by no means an accident. He did not “get lucky” landing these. This wasn’t a fluke sesh were he was feeling the juice.

Dude has the skill.

Besides the immense amount of practice and dedication that goes into learning and perfecting these tricks, you have to make sure that your equipment game is real strong.

That being said, we present the Chris Haffey Park Pack.

Chris Haffey Park Pack. Eulogy Wheels. Bones Swiss.

The Park Pack features a set of 4 Eulogy Chris Haffey 58mm 88a wheels as well as a set of 8 Bones Swiss Bearings. Both of these are considered the best in their respective field. This combo only runs $69.95 and you can get it shipped out for about the same price as a double double with fries and a drink. Peep game right over here.

Chris Haffey Eulogy Wheels

They 58mm profile ensures maximum speed while the 88a hardness gives a smooth ride as well as that crucial grip mandatory for the high speeds.

Bones Swiss Bearings

The Bone Swiss Bearings have long had a well deserved reputation of being the best bearings available on the Market at a price that won’t force you to survive of thrown away tortillas and ramen noodles like a dumpster duck. With a little bit of care and maintenance, you can very easily get multiple years of use out of your Bones Swiss Bearings.

Chris Haffey Vibralux Jeans

While fashion is not nearly as important as your actual hardware, it might be time to toss your beat up, junker, stained to all hell thrift shop jeans and cop some of the brand new Chris Haffey Vibralux Jeans. Shit is madd player. Be sure to check them jams out right over here.
