Have you participated in any skating events, or are you planning on doing so?

My first race was the 2008 Texas Road Rash. I did 24 Hours at Montreal later that year, but races just aren’t really my thing. I prefer weekend city skates (SkateDC, Big Apple Roll, etc.).

Where are you comfortable skating (parking lots, greenways, roads, etc.)?

I’ll skate anything relatively dry. Actually, I enjoy skating in the rain, too. As long as somebody else is buying the bearings.

Do you need any help with basic skills such as braking or turning?

I t-stop pretty well, but still working on the hockey stop and that funny looking a-frame stuttering stop that all the cool kids do.

What kind of skates do you have (recreational, racing, custom, etc.) or do you need help getting skates?

Bont Jets, but they’re old and decrepit. Not sure what I’ll get next.

How long have you been skating, or are you just getting started (or thinking about it)?

Started skating in ’99, didn’t get “serious” about it until ’04.
