Those people lucky enough to see Sven Boekhorst skating at the 2000 Long Beach Marathon in Southern California got a real treat: Watching this world champion aggressive rider skating a half-pipe in a pair of 5 wheel clap-frame speedskates!

It was the end of a long 2-day Vendor Expo, and this trick started out as a joke between the guys at the Mogema Sports booth and world champion Dutch aggressive skater Sven Boekhorst. Sven put on a pair of Mogema Pro Carbon Speed Boots with the new Mogema M41 Clap Frame, and started skating on the half-pipe set up for Rollerblade's aggressive skating demonstration!


Dutch aggressive skater Sven Boekhorst, of Team Rollerblade Europe, has been very hot in 2000. He won first place at three of the most prestigious events in aggressive skating: the Gravity Games, the XGames, and the ASA Pro Tour World Championships:

  1. The XGAMES - RESULTS
    Sven Boekhorst, First Place, Men's Inline Park

  2. THE GRAVITY GAMES - RESULTS
    Sven Boekhorst, First Place, Men's Inline Street

  3. ASA WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS - RESULTS

After the ASA World Championships in Las Vegas on October 15, 2000, Mat Bandelow of the Aggressive Skaters Association said

"Sven Boekhorst ... has become the only skater to win what could be called the Triple Crown of Rollerblading. Sven has won the Gravity Games, the XGames and now the ASA World Championships. That's a lot of money in only 8 months time."


The Rollerblade aggressive team gave us an exciting show at the Long Beach Convention Center, before the Long Beach Marathon. In addition to Dutch skater Sven Boekhorst, we got to watch Taig Khris from France (first place Vert at the 2000 ASA World Championships), long-time pro Mike Budnik from Southern California, 10 year old Willie Woo from Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, and several other great pro skaters, including Cory Miller, the manager of Team Rollerblade.
