Social media raised the competition. Skating isn't "sing-a-long" so it takes some time and effort to get to a certain level - + the creative skills to stand the social media. Perfect for jealousy, hate and competition.

I see also tension between the young skaters, who started in the last years, because it is cool and again popular, and older skaters, who maintained skating although literally nobody roller skated on traditional roller skating. The young skaters behave sometimes like they invented or least discovered roller skating and elder skaters complain about the lack of respect. - up to hate, because you cannot beat 30-40 years of experience.
