My news Rollerskate
Its true man. In year 1991 Marcos Longares offered me rollerskating in his Team, Rockexpress. But I only fourteen years old, and the mind not the same. two year after I quit the team and today still not that.I not exploit the oportunity. Now,thanks to Ufra, Bombe and the other incredible person I come back to rollerskate. Today Im happy whit my rollerskates, my friends and I not think in the past.....

It is crazy how you look back and realize that you had so many missed opportunities. When I was younger, I had G&S wanting to sponsor me. They gave me some crazy wheels, which I used, but I never pursued sponsorship. I think I was too young to know what that meant. My parents were awsome as far as dropping me off at the skatepark, but I never really understood sponsorship and at the time did not care. I am proud to say that Fred Blood saw me skate and gave me a set of his wheels. That was pretty cool. I guess I could have gotten sponsored, but I was too young to care. In college, when things were really bad, I sent my video to a few companies and got sponsored by Bauer inline skates. I guess I sold out, but at the time just wanted free stuff. It was pretty cool to learn how to ride inlines, when I could barely stand on them. I went on to travel Europe and was probably the only inline skater they ever saw. I hope and want to think that I introduced inline to Europe. That may be a bad thing now, but it was an awesome experience.

: : : Those look awesome! I have never been into hockey skates because they are so stiff at first. I did hear that if you so them in water and put them on, then they will form to your feet. My old sponsor send me some hockey inline skates and I just did not like them, but I should have tried to mold them or something. I ended up trading them and a few other skates for a pair of aggressive inline skates that I hated. I am so happy because it got me back into rollerskating.
