I learned to rollerskate 4 years ago after watching a game. A few months in, and before I had passed my minimum skills, some of my new Bristol Roller Derby teammates invited me to the skate park. None of us knew what we were doing 🤷♀️ but I did know it was fun and another chance to spend time on skates. Since then I’ve never looked back!
Personal highlights include:
💥 Watching ramp skating EXPLODE in the past few years and being there for the beginning of CiB Bristol.
😍 Getting to practice flipping with Estro Jen, what a babe!
🏅 Skating with Lady Trample and Bomba Hache on multiple occasions (hey when you coming back to the UK?)
🤝 Meeting so many amazing humans in the skate park and getting to travel more because of it.
🎓 Helping 30 skaters learn to drop-in in the same coaching session, they blew my mind.
I’ve also learned I have an AMAZING capacity to bruise…especially on my butt and thighs…which is why the full crash pants are my absolute all-time favourite bit of STEAKS kit. Despite throwing myself around like an absolute loon, my bruising days seem to be behind me.
