A few sessions with Richie Eisler

...a few last sessions before ankle surgery...

Richie Eisler is arguably the nicest guy in rolling. If you haven’t met him before, he is the guy with the biggest smile in the room. He is also one of the most technically brilliant skaters in the world, combining stunts with precision switch ups with his signature smooth style. Richie really is the complete skater, and has been making friends and admirers worldwide. He is also a perfect example of professionalism in this sport.

Hey Richie, it’s been a while since we’ve seen/heard from you… What have you been up to lately?

Welllll… I moved to Australia last year, so I have been living the dream over here. I moved from the coldest, most land-locked place on earth to a sub-tropical beach, so life is pretty good at the moment. Skating wise, I have been laying a bit low. I had a major problem with my ankle and it has been really tough on my skating.

How was your skating affected by this injury? What exactly was the problem and how does it feel be be “fixed”?

My skating was affected 100% by the injury! It started when I sprained my right ankle a couple years back and complications ended up forming a bone spur that prevented it from moving properly. Basically, I had this bony growth that got in the way of every movement. Skating isn’t too fun when you can’t bend your ankle/leg properly! And then, to make matters worse, I kept skating and ended up breaking a piece of the bone spur off! So at this point, I had a sharp little piece of bone floating around in my joint. The combination of this chip and a sharp spur grinding around in there was a real treat! Haha it felt like there was a piece of barbed wire in my ankle every time I bent it in any direction. I kept skating, but it wasn’t the same….

So anyways, it took forever, but I finally got everything fixed up. In August I went back to Canada to have surgery to clean it all out. The doc took out my sweet little pebble and shaved the spur off.  So now I’m back in Australia, healing on the beach! It shouldn’t be long before I’m skating again. Richie v.2.0! haha

How is life in Australia, right now? Do you have any upcoming plans or projects?

Life here is fantastic. It’s a paradise. The skate scene here is just right and I’m really trying to make the most of living near the ocean. I think this is going to be an incredible summer and I’m really looking forward to it. My upcoming plans are just to blade a lot and enjoy each day. I will be filming plenty, so I guess you can watch for future parts.

Your first pro skate just dropped in stores everywhere… How do you feel about this? How did you come up with the design?

I feel like the happiest boy in the world! “It was all a dream….”

I actually came up with a ton of different color schemes, but felt like this one was the most unique. I didn’t want to do a typical black or white. The original colors were inspired by a pair of Nike’s, but I especially liked how they had a bit of a cold, wintery feel to them; reppin’ blading in Canada!

Thanks Richie! We look forward to seeing more from you, soon….

No problem! It won’t be long…

Hopefully this edit from a few sessions before my surgery will tide you over for now… haha take it easy.

오른쪽 발목을 삐끗했는데도 계속 타다가... 뼈가 조금 깨져나가서 그 조각이 다리 안에서 이리저리 돌아다닌다고 하는 듯? --;;;;

통증이 장난 아니었던 듯. ㄷㄷㄷㄷ;;;;

    그리고 저 피쉬 사진은 왜 하필 빨간 커프에 레이스텍(?) 이 겹쳐버리는 바람에 커프가 휘꺼덕 접힌것처럼 보였던 걸까요 ㅋ
  • 코코마 2009/09/22 00:03 #

    어쨌든 난 지난 일욜날

    발아픈 클드론 신고 피쉬와의 재회를 시작했음. ㅎㅎ

    시피카 415 낑구고 다시 피쉬 해봐야징~ // 불사조 이너는 당분간 바이바이~
  • faaeee 2009/09/22 00:05 #

    확실히 피쉬라는 그 발목을 꺽는 기술은 하드쉘로 무릅을 낮춰서 정석으로걸어야 발목이라던지 지금의 통증이 없는것 같아요 .... 대신 기술 성공율을 5%를 넘나듭니다 ㅠ.ㅠ

    엉터리 피쉬 기술의 90%을 이뤄넨 데쉬 ㅋ봉 ㅈ망
  • 코코마 2009/09/22 00:19 #

    난 여의도 낮돌에서 거의 모든 탑 계열이 바퀴로 가는데 -.-;;;;

    피쉬는 바퀴로 안 가고 잘 되드라고~ 흐흣

    다른 발도 쵸큼 들어졌었음. -_-v
  • faaeee 2009/09/22 00:17 #

    아 맞아요 ㅠ.ㅠ

    드미 지못미 .. 사진보니까 옆에서 아예 작정하고 때려박은듯하던데 ..

    바이브럭스 팀이 세계를 먹기 위한 음모인듯
  • faaeee 2009/09/22 00:20 #

    피쉬 바퀴로 가면 그건 이미 죽음 아닌가요 ㄷㄷㄷㄷㄷㄷㄷㄷㄷㄷㄷㄷㄷㄷ 무섭슴
  • 코코마 2009/09/22 00:24 #

    나의 '앨리웁 피쉬브레인틱한 한발로 뒤로 주행'을 못 본 게로구나~ ㅎㅎㅎ
  • faaeee 2009/09/22 00:36 #

    ㄷㄷㄷ 요즘 제로 피쉬 연습하는데 발빠지면 엇휴 ㅠ.ㅠ 그런데 엘리웁이라뇨 ㄷㄷㄷㄷㄷㄷㄷ
  • 코코마 2009/09/22 01:27 #

    걍 카인드 느낌으로 하면 된다~ ㅎㅎ (물론 나는 그렇게 해서 바퀴로 가고 있고~ -.-;;;;;)
