2 years, then a 27 year gap, then 6 months
Why did you get involved in roller derby?

Still on anarchy but have my eye on 187s
What Helmet do you use?
I use a Pro Tech that I have customised myself. (That’s my thing)
What skates do you use?
Riedell R3 beginner skates. I have narrow feet and these have been a great start up set. I’m going to upgrade soon.
What were your first pair of skates?
I had a pair of Blue, red and yellow Dallas roller boots with blue wheels. I wore them all over the place.

The inclusivity of it. Anyone is made to feel welcome and useful.

Get yourself a customised helmet painted by me. It really does make a difference. Seriously though. Improve your fitness as well as your skate skills.
