I currently reside in Victoria B.C. Canada, and have been an avid Skater all my life, Since the age of Four, My Styles include Downhill Speed, Street and Freestyle, along with Figure and Ice/Roller hockey. Through the early eighties to mid nineties, I then became involved in one of the local Roller Derby teams here, The Fantastic Four of which I later made Captain, of which we are still undefeated. One of two Skating names i was labeled as and still go by is, Knight-RaveN, since I do most of my Street Skating way past midnight.
I currently own two pairs of skates the first are set and rigged for downhill using

Riedell 320 series bootes
Sure-Grip Super X plates
Penny 3 inch trucks
Sure-Grip cushions Purple 85a
Sims Street Snakes Green 80a
Swiss ceramic bearings
jump bars 5/16 bell toe stops
and ZeroNuts

Second pair: Freestyle and Dancing
Dominion 88 Boots
Sure-Grip Avenger DA45 Plates Black
Sure-grip cushions Purple 85a
Atom Pulse wheels Black Blue and Purple 78a
Swiss ceramic bearings
Bionic Stoppers 5/8
ZeroNutz

My Grandfather used to dance on Roller Skates back in the 50s here at the local roller rink, for he was and still is my inspiration, God rest his Soul. I will never stop and Love the sport in all of its admiration.

I am currently forming a dance freestyle street team here locally right now, comprised of the members that we once skated with at the local rinks here in the 70s and 80s. Our FaceBook address is as follows:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/Knight.Raven.Rollers/

and we currently practice at the Eagle ridge center
http://www.eagleridgecentre.com/faci...ry-floor-arena
along with ripping up the local hills and roadways after midnight

For if it's paved, I'll hit it hard and Fast, with No Fear. My current top speed Downhill, at is stands so far is 98mph. I will break 100mph soon enough lol

Default Welcome

A big welcome to you.

I used to live in Nanaimo as a kid so it's nice to have someone from that general area of the world here on this forum.

Hello All, I have been lurking for some time now and just got posting privileges. So I am Bob I am 60yrs young, I skated as a teen on 2 different speed teems and then for some reason like a lot of us life got in the way in my 20s. skip ahead to 2001 and I moved and took skating up again finding a local rink 30 miles away. I had always skated quads but picked up a used pair of inlines for a local state park. Jump ahead another 5 years when I met my now 2nd wife and surprised her with a date night of skating lo and behold she had takin her kids before so new what to expect. jump ahead again to a year ago when we took it up again in earnest and I convinced her she needed her own skates and mine had either shrunk or my feet grew so we picked up some Riedell angels to get going. I have since cannibalized my old skates and replaced the nylon plates with my old sure grip super x and my old powell bones wheels. We skate every fri night and have also traveled to other rinks in the state. ok enough for now will post more later along with pics I hope
