A particularly "freeridey" looking wheel, the Serrata comes packed with features that make it an undercover downhill skating machine. Featuring a large-spoked core, the wheel is quick off the line, grippy and holds a decent top speed.
Nick came to SA when he was only 2yrs old (he was born in Serbia). He lived in Johannesburg until the end of matric, then moved down to Port Elizabeth to study Architectural Technology at NMMU, and that’s where he met Renier van Staden and got into skating! He used to skate to varsity and after hours he would skate with Ren and the boys as often as he could “as Architecture had me by the balls!!” 4 years later and he is back in Johannesburg again and working at a firm! “Architecture still got me by the balls, except this time I’m wearing a ball box and not letting it absorb my free time too much..” Nick also makes an appearance at Jozi X every Wednesday to throw his body in every which direction and tries to land in a safe position, “i.e., not my head!!” Nick enjoys all extreme sports; even if he can’t do it he’ll watch it for days… “Normal sports are showing less and less interest in his life…”
Murray “Mr Chandler” Chandler has been in the South African downhill scene for 6 years now and his current SA ranking on the SAGRA website stands at 7. He’s quite the busy man nowadays as he is in the process of launching his own brand of skating gear under the name, Flat Out. We recently published his sliding pucks on our site and the demand has been great! Apparently there is an upgrade on these available now and we’re hoping to launch them on the site soon. There is also news of much bigger things to come. Did someone say “precision trucks”? I managed to get him to sit still for a short while and answer a few questions. Welcome to the team Murray, stoked to have you onboard.
Richard Edmunds hails from the sleepy little town of Port Elizabeth. PE might be considered down under, but when it comes to skating, the guys mean business. I first met Richard a few months ago when he bought his first longboard setup through Longboarding SA and shortly after that I ran into him at one of the local hills. When I first saw him skating I immediately realised that this guy is a natural on a board. I’m not sure if it’s his experience from regular skating or surfing that has allowed him this natural ability, but one thing I do know, this guy has no doubts about what to do with a board. Look out for this youngster coming up through the ranks very soon. Without further adieu, meet the man himself.
