WAX ON, WAX OFF // Cover photo by Brian Caissie – Caption by David Ehrenreich
Usually the peanut gallery waits until the session is over to divulge horror stories of previous attempts. But the legend of Sean Hayes’ multiple hospital visits had found its way to JAMIE MALEY by the time I arrived at the famous downtown Vancouver spot. Amongst all our preparation, no one bothered to check if the spot was waxed. Why would it be? No one waxes marble. But Jamie’s first attempt at a FRONTSIDE NOSESLIDE tipped us off. It was disastrous, and the only reasonable explanation was that a renegade Rollerblade posse unleashed their entire scented candle stash upon the ledge. It took longer to scrape off the massive Post Office out-ledge like it was a frozen car window than it did for Jamie to finish what many had started. Who’s next?
