|Hi and thanks for getting back to me. I like to joke about the old fart thing, but feel pretty damn young. I think that I used to skate with Lee. I couldn't remember his last name, but he looked familiar. I think I used to skate a ramp with him at Aaron's house. I can't remember his last name, but he lives near LAX and lived with a couple of rollerskaters. I am going to get on the rollerskates for the first time today. I better remember not to lean like you do on inline skates. I will keep you posted on how I do.
: Welcome Back to rollerskating! Glad to have another roller join us here.
: Duke, Fred & Lee skate regularly in the LA area. Are you near the Santa Monica skatepark or Vans in Orange County? I still am the only rollerskater in the NYC area and at 45, rode vert just this Saturday. Brian Wainwright is downright amazing on his rollers down in N. Carolina. There is talk of another gathering in California.
: Also, check out Rollergirl at:
: She has sure-grip plates and trucks of different widths and has custom grindbars to fit them that work well.
: Check out this setup:
: I had the pleasure of meeting and skating with Lisa and Daniel last July in Vancouver.
: They are not old farts, though.
: Roll on, Irene
