Spots include Benalla, Wodonga, Tuggeranong (for ARO), Canberra CBD, Belconnon and Yass, with killer skating across both park and street.

The Joint Tour

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_video link=”″][vc_column_text disable_pattern=”true” align=”left” margin_bottom=”0″]The long-awaited video for The Joint Tour is now available for purchase at for the dirt cheap price of only $2.99 AUD.

Starring Martin Gade, Chris Pullar, FX Levieux, Rob Ham, JB Gammagnac and Thomas Dalbis, alongside many skaters that “joined” along the way, The Joint Tour Movie is a 68 minute film that documents a 5 week rollerblading adventure during the European summer of 2014.

The tour covered more than 8,000 kms, beginning the journey at the Bling Bling street contest in Nantes, France and finished in Switzerland where the infamous High In The Park contest happened in Bulle.

It was the biggest skating adventure any of the crew had ever experienced and demonstrated the universal open-door policy that the world-wide rollerblading community is known for.

A tour like this would not have been possible without the positive attitudes of many. You will see these positive vibes shine through in the film that documented the adventure from beginning to end.

The movie features park and street sections, lifestyle sections as well as interviews with the skaters present on tour.

Alongside the six Aussie and French skaters on the tour, the film, directed by Thomas Dalbis, also features Julien Cudot, Michel Prados, Carlos Bernal, Roman Abrate, Daniel Skerzn, Jeremy Dalbis, Josh Nielsen, Hadrien Bastouille, Fredje Vanovertveldt, Chris Smith, Mathieu Heinemann, Greg Breger, Damien Gerard, Diego Luppi and many, many more.

With most VOD sections charging a premium for only a few short minutes, it’s refreshing to see such a long film for less than the cost of a beer down the pub!
