| Interesting, I met a guy named Alan at the Jaws skatepark in New Braunfels. He and his wife skateboard together and have been at the park twice while I was skating. He talked about having done vert roller back in the day and said that he still has his old pair of skates. When I asked why he stopped roller skating, his reply was simply that he was tired of skating by himself...as in not having other people who also skate quads to session with. I bet this is the same dude you are talking about here, Biff.
I tried to find some videos of him on his board but have come up empty so far. The last time I saw him was maybe 3 weeks ago, and he did seem very interested in my new skate setup!
