How to keep our sport alive?
: Hi all,
: I am curious if any of you are seeing young vertical rollerskaters? It seems the scene in Europe is still going well, but here in Cali I don't ever see any young kids on skates. Duke Rennie really nailed it when he said we are a dying breed. I know us older folks keep skating, but when we are done will our sport be dead? I am just curious to hear what you are seeing out there. After spending a little time as a vertical inline skater, I now really appreciate how special rollerskating is. Our sport has so much soul and our roots are tied so closely to skateboarding and in my opinion vertical rollerskaters are a pretty amazing group of people. Your thoughts?

correct answer.
we are back up to four in australia and i hope we can increase that.
so long as my arse points to the ground, were not dead or finished.
cheers, h.
