A dozen years ago there was a local speed skating "club" that held their meetings on Wednesday Night. I was asked at some point why I seldom attended the meetings. I answered that Wednesday meant the Wednesday Night Skate at Stanford. If I had to chose between skating and talking about skating, there could only be one answer.

Default I concur

As the absolute ONLY inline skater in all of Camarillo CA I'll agree.

But no one skates 24/7. So, it would be interesting to hear more about members skating experiences be it about bad skating trails or even bad technique, or crashes.

BTW: Had a crash a few weeks ago. Crossed my tips on cross overs before I was warmed up or even all awake.
No recovery from that kind of stupid move. I paid for it.

ciao

I'm going with topcarbons answer - too busy skating.

we just did the annual Idaho skate tour -great group this year - skating, mtn biking, floating rivers. June 30-July 8th. While some of the group stayed, we had to leave on the 5th. we stopped at coastal beaches en route to SF test driving the Powerslide Kaz off road skates, on different terrains. Landed into SF for Fri night skate, Church of 8 wheels, and the 2nd annual Barbary coast skate marathon. On the last leg of the trip homeward bound we stopped at the salt flats to test drive the off-road skates on salt.

oh, and our trip included dog bites, and a crash with a chin landing... both of us ended up in ER getting stitches this trip.

now paying for the time off, chained to a desk, catching up with customers.... help!!

Were these the Powerslide Kaze Tundras? I have been thinking of them for the winter months here in PA. Paved rail-to-trail: winter brings sticks, ice, snow, etc. How were they to keep some skate skills up in the winter months?

^ yes, the Kaze tundra. they work great on hard pack. they are in limited sizes, you can contact our shop for more info. the cool thing about these skates - you can also switch use to a trinity urban frame for street / paved trail use.

1. 14 mile old train rail converted to mtn bike use in Idaho.



2.Testing at a flow trail nearer to home in Utah.
