United Front: Epic rollerblading video with talented skaters from San Diego and beyond. Remastered in HD for an unforgettable experience.

Relive the Golden Era of Rollerblading with United Front

United Front is an exhilarating aggressive inline skating video created by Jan Welch in 2001 and distributed by Daily Bread Magazine. Filmed in San Diego, California, it showcases the remarkable talents of local skaters from that era as well as skaters from around the country and world who flocked to San Diego, which served as the rollerblading epicenter in the late 90s and early 2000s. You’ll be treated to a two-part profile featuring the incredible talents of Chris Haffey, who was just 15 at the time, as well as a profile on Sandro Timoteo from Peru.

The video also includes a section dedicated to the Santee Crew with Lye Shivak, Damien Wilson, and Nick Wood, and the Stunt Seekers section, featuring the impressive skills of Dustin Jones, Aaron Dizon, and Brian Shima. Recently, Jan went the extra mile to remaster each section of the video, upgrading the original 640 x 480 DV master files to a breathtaking 1440 x 1080 HD resolution. Brace yourself for a nostalgic journey and an unparalleled viewing experience as you unwind, relax, and dive into the captivating world of United Front like never before!

The Chris Haffey profile in United Front holds a special place in my heart as it was the first section I ever filmed with him. This video also marks the first project I worked on after relocating to San Diego in December of 1999. Chris, widely regarded as one of the greatest of all time in rollerblading, had already achieved legendary status during his high school years. His profile follows the impressive Stunt Seekers section featuring Aaron Dizon, Dustin Jones, and Brian Shima. Brian himself introduces Chris’ profile, confidently proclaiming his greatness. And indeed, Brian’s prediction proved to be spot on!
