1st let me say thanks to everybody for all their kind words about my youngest son, Ryder. We love him fiercely. Everybody is so creative & cool, I really feel lucky to be able to reach out to you all in your little parts of the world & connect on so many issues. Sorry, if I'm mushy, but no more than 12 hours of sleep in the last 100 hours & I'm feeling the Love.
Now, onto Skating.
The weekend before last weekend my good friends PITA (a roller derby legend & transition skating demon) & her very cool husband Todd came out to Vegas for a Derby event. Dawn & I got together with them for their Derby event & the next day we all got together on our side of Town & hit 2 local parks.
Now, I know when I speak of RollerCon, the concept's a little vague. Basically, PITA is the epitome of what I'm trying to do with the RC SK8 Park Tour: expose (& get them addicted) to park/transition/vertical rollerskating. These girls already rollerskate AND they're generally Bad-Ass Bitches. Pardon my language, I mean it as a compliment. :)
I submit to PITA. I have chosen her to be this year's RollerCon SK8 Park Tour Flyer Girl. And the footage from that weekend was only supposed to be preliminary, but now may well be the Flyer material.
First the video clips.....
This park is literally 2 blocks from my house. It's called Silverado Ranch SK8 Park. I hated it...until I got my new SK8s & started learning truck grinds. After putting on my HMWP sliders I liked it even more. Anyway, here's PITA (which by the way is an acronym meaning Pain In The Ass! see why I LOVE this giel?!?!) doing some Aerials on a 4 foot 1/4 pipe wall:
