I couldn't agree with you more! I don't WANT to be "IN" because then we'll eventually be "out". This Sport induces such a Passion in it's True devotees that we're still doing it 30....40 years + on !
I refer to some of the Greats....... Irene Ching, Duke Rennie, Brian Wainwright, Jay Tubb... to name just a few. People that did it before anyone else did & STILL Sk8! For the Love of Vert & 8 Wheels!
