A couple of months ago i got a message from a friend asking if i wanted to ride some portuguese straps, i told him right away i would love to support a portuguese company but im on ZONTRAC and im really really happy with it.
BUT it happens, this portuguese company which is called MALABINA main thing are the bags. we got to a deal and here it is THE LINO BAG.
now go check www.malabina.com and order your lino bag the color you want.
After riding plastic pegs for a while i started searching for some with the size i needed, which wouldnt rotate, and a long lasting plastic sleeve.
The solution was DESIGN MY OWN PEG!!!
Today i got a package from Rinng Parts with "the LINO PEG" and a few other hub parts.
Thank you so much RINNG for believing in my ideas!!
Over the last 2 months i have been working non stop building a new skatepark, witch will be my local skatepark (2mins from my house).
Here´s 2 shots showing the result.
WESTJAM 3???? who knows....
Ricardo Lino is one of the most inspiring people that i have ever met through blading. Anyone that has ever spent time with the super friendly Portuguese will understand what life should be about pretty quickly, fun! As a part of the USD Euro team he traveled the world and had features in a variety of magazines, including Daily Bread and a Be-Mag cover. He is the one guy you always wished would be on your tour, super positive and a pleasure to be around.
Today “The Lino“ is a Fixed Gear Bike Pro, he is still teaching kids how to blade, organizing events, building skateparks and making videos. Everything Lino touches, he puts in all his heart and soul.
Keep on doing your thing Ricardo. Life’s good!
