Matt Caratelli’s new edit with from the Newport P-rail Invitational 2015 in Melbourne

Newport P-Rail Trophy

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_video link=”″][vc_column_text disable_pattern=”true” align=”left” margin_bottom=”0″]Tom Scofield has added another impressive notch to his belt by taking out the 3rd Annual Newport P-Rail Invitational on December 6 in Melbourne.

Held at Newport Skatepark, the day featured 21 of Melbourne’s best bladers battling it out for the title in what was he most intense competition yet.

This years NPI featured the massive A-frame box for Round 3 as well as the well known flat box that Melbourne rollerblading drags out to every event.

The format of the competition was as follows:

Head-to-head knockout each round
Different spot each round
Last blader standing wins
Crowd decides on winner
Votes will be counted for seemingly tied rounds/final round

• Round 1 = 3 min
• Round 2 = 4 min
• Round 3 = 5 min
• Final round = 6+ min[/vc_column_text][mk_image src=”” image_width=”800″ image_height=”450″ crop=”false” lightbox=”false” frame_style=”simple” target=”_self” caption_location=”inside-image” align=”left” margin_bottom=”25″][vc_column_text disable_pattern=”true” align=”left” margin_bottom=”0″]The contest featured many close match ups, along with just as many injuries, calling for four wildcards to be featured in Round 2.

Taking the best injury, killing it all day was Andy Plumridge who suffered a bad wrist break sending him straight to the hospital.

The final round brought about some of the most incredible blading that Melbourne has seen all year: Hayden Golder Vs. Martin Gade Vs. Tom Scofield!

In the end, the Kiwi import came out on top, taking home the title, trophy and $103.20 in prize money.

Big ups to Matt Caratelli for hosting the competition with the massive help from Jean-Claude “JC” White, who brought all the boxes.

Shout outs also to Kev San Jose and Brad Watson for filming all day and Diego for taking photos – stay tuned for more action from the NPI soon.

Matt Caratelli drops edit and review of the Seba aggressive frames for Bayside Blades

Matt Caratelli frame review

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_video link=”″][vc_column_text disable_pattern=”true” align=”left” margin_bottom=”0″]Melbourne shredder Matt Caratelli has just dropped an online edit and review of Seba’s aggressive frames for Bayside Blades.

Alongside some killer skating at St Kilda, Yea and Newport parks, Matt has plenty of nice things to say about the Seba frames, which were launched in conjunction with the CJ Wellsmore pro model skates last year.

Matt said while the frames were heavier than the last frames he was riding, they were much more solid. The side H-block groove meant they have great centre of gravity for H-block tricks, meaning he can lean back on tricks and landings a bit more than usual and helped him air more on ramps/bowls. The downside was he had a reduced turning circle.

The frames are slightly wider than others on the market, which helped with cess slides and meant you couldn’t wear your wheels down as far. He also noted that he previously rode medium frames on a small boot, but compared to his previous frames, the length was definitely noticeable.

The Seba Frames are available in Australia now via Bayside Blades.

Filmed by Kev San Jose, Brad Struzycki and Mark Kowald.

New profile from Danish import Martin Gade for Razors Australia by Thomas Dalbis

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][mk_image src=”” image_width=”800″ image_height=”450″ crop=”false” lightbox=”false” frame_style=”simple” target=”_self” caption_location=”inside-image” align=”left” margin_bottom=”25″][vc_column_text disable_pattern=”true” align=”left” margin_bottom=”0″]Danish powerhouse Martin Gade has made a big impression on the Australian scene after making the move Down Under only a few short years ago.

Destroying both street and park from his home base in Melbourne, Gade has fast established himself as one of the best skaters in Australia in recent times.

From taking out first place in the Victorian Inline Titles 2015 and the Australian Rolling Open 2013 (plus third place last year), to shredding every park and rail that Melbourne has to offer, it’s clear this stylish and technical skater is at the top of his game.

If you need any more proof, check out this killer edit filmed across Melbourne and Hobart in the Razors SL2s.

Less serious than it sounds, as Matt says: “Basically an excuse to get together in the great weather with even better mates and getting some blading done at the same time!”

Judging by the video it was a good turn-out, with a big Melbourne crew making their way down to Newport Skatepark for the day.
