I'll help you fly on little round wings!
I just love "all things skating" but believe that inline sports are currently the people's choice. Inline roller skating is one of few relatively inexpensive social, recreational and competitive activities that a whole family or group of friends can participate in at the same time and place, indoors or outdoors.
I want to provide you with information that will help make every roller sports adventure a safe and fulfilling one. I hope to transfer the joy that I feel when air rushes past my face to new and seasoned inline skaters and roller sports participants everywhere.
