|Still haven't started making my vert skates, but I found some quads at Goodwill -- Marco Polo "Warriors", real OLD SKOOL. :) I had to replace the bearings and bushings but that was no problem and I'm using them for derby practices for now! Obviously if I stick with derby I'll have to upgrade before too long but they're actually working just fine.
My skates look exactly like this, but white and red:
I went out to the skatepark today for the first time and was too chicken to do much of anything besides get a lay of the land. But soon I will have insurance and then I'm going ALL OUT.
Below is a fuzzy picture someone took of me practicing falls. :D
