Wheel Scene Interviews Nils Jansons


"To say Nils Jansons has had a prolific career to date would be an incredible understatement. He is the first Latvian skater to turn professional for a major blading brand, has numerous pro wheels and skates to his name and won the biggest event in blading, Winterclash 2013, by overpowering competition juggernauts CJ Wellsmore and Roman Abrate. However, his success story has not been without its share of misfortune. In recent years he has been plagued by serious injuries that threatened to derail the rise of one of Europe’s all-time greatest bladers. However, after recovering from surgery, making some major lifestyle changes and gaining a place on the newly revamped Roces team, Nils Jansons is back at the forefront of blading, has a new pro skate to his name, and has been involved in various captivating projects over the past two years." - Wheel Scene
