Explain the feeling you had the first time you put on skates.
Pure euphoria and excitement, a feeling of freedom only a child could feel!
What is your inspiration to keep skating?
The simplicity in design, efficiency through freedom of movement, the challenge, the speed and skill required makes this sport a dream for me.
We truly believe skating makes a better world. How do you think skating makes the world a better place?
It provides an outlet for many to escape the rigours of the world, to leave stress behind. It provides a getaway; in essence skating is a personal endeavour to better oneself while experiencing a dopamine rush at the same time. Skaters usually seek a community of like-minded people who instil great values and lifelong friendships that enrich your life. This, I believe makes the word a better place through skating and sports in general.
How do you keep progressing and reinventing yourself?
My method is constant training and advice from pros, outreach and organizing events such as the Skate Migration event in South FL. Also participating in Local and World skating events.
What’s the most helpful tip you want to share with any skater?
Practice often practice every day, participate in training hosted by pros, wear your Protective gear and don’t be afraid of falls.
Imagine a world filled with animals who can skate. If you could be any of those animals what would you be and why?
A bear so that I could skate and nap over and over again.
