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.
so those new sk8rs? there might b 2 i think duke is working with. but the person that i first was inspired by i think quit so that saddens me so now irene is my inspiration so ur not aloud to quit lol!! im special i think cause ima newbie still? ;-D ill be the one that makes art tho so we will live a long long time.
