CJ Wellsmore is Australia’s top professional rollerblader and a three-time world champion.
Known for his high-speed, high-amplitude intensity across both street and park, CJ Wellsmore’s influence is known well beyond Australia’s shores, with a series of killer sections (most notably in Dom West’s classic video Vine Street) cementing his place in the upper echelons of the global blading elite.
He is supported by French brands SEBA, who launched their street range with the Wellsmore pro models, Gadgik! and Arcena clothing.
CJ has been one of the most successful competition riders in recent years, taking home big wins at prestigious events such as Winterclash (Netherlands), Kia Extreme Games (China), NASS Festival (UK), West Coast Classic (France), NL Contest (Austria), The Blading Cup (USA) and many more.
The golden run of competition results comes off the back of the release of CJ’s first pro skate by French company SEBA in November 2013. SEBA’s introduction to the aggressive skate market is the first pro skate for an Australian skater since the golden era of rollerblading and represents a huge boost for the local scene.
