|I'm one of those that only skates a few times a year. Like many people I have responsibilities to my family, which I didnt have when I was skating 20 years ago every other night. I also have other interests that fill my time nowadays.
However, there were few people to share views with in those days. The odd meeting at skateparks or the unexpected article/picture in a magazine. I remember watching the vert rollerskating sequence from the Monster video of 1987 repeatedly and I had a picture of Fred Blood in an Arizona pipe on my wall.
Now that there is a forum such as this, it is interesting to be able to read about what is going on in the sport now, and to contribute from my experiences.
