K2 team manager Mike Powell is going to hook me up with a free pair of the Varsity skates Very Happy and i get to keep them!

expect a full review with lots of quality photos and detailed a breakdown of these skates. Several pages have been set aside for the next issue of Balance, so rest assured that i won't skimp on anything.

fucking stoked Very Happy

also, Mike Powell will have an interview in the same issue, as well. Louie Zamora might be the one interviewing him. Unfortunately, Louie is not comfortable being in the spotlight in any magazines right now so an interview with him is not on horizon. maybe someday Very Happy

By the time i need to wear them, i will not be able to do grinds or gaps. i will be able to skate transitions to a certain extent, and air out. but someone in Indianapolis who wears a size 11 can test them out, if they'd like. I'm not going to be a stingy douche about it. they're free for crying out loud. Laughing

Sounds good, but I think I should still give it about 2 more weeks till I skate again. My dislocated elbow is almost fine again, but I want to be careful and wait a bit longer.

**UPDATE**


got the skates:





I spoke with Louie on the phone for a 1/2 hour today, and he is very excited to do an interview with Balance. He'll be explaining what he is currently working on with K2 and sharing what he's been up to over the years with his family and job, as well as some reminiscing over the glory days of the late 90s.

I have a photographer that used to shoot on the regular for Daily Bread and Box magazines named Zack Podell, who will be taking photos of Louie in Southern California for the interview.

I finished transcribing my interview with Louie last night. So far it's 2,885 words Shocked Mike Powell's interview will certainly answer a lot of questions about the status of K2s aggressive line, and answer for some of the decisions made by the company over the years.

just waiting on Louie's photos, should be over the next week to ten days. I took about 150 shots of the skates from every angle focusing on different parts of the skates. So far, they skate like a dream.

Here's a throw away shot I'm not using in the review:




I just can't wait for the solid black boots and cuffs version that Louie designed. I was going to dye these, but since I know that the black ones do exist, I'm not going to tear these apart like I had intended.

On a happy note, I may be doing some consulting work for K2 soon, probably just testing prototypes. Even if it's not a paid gig, I'm excited Very Happy
