Why I choose to wear Riedell
I have rolled in MANY different types and styles of skates during my many years of rolling, and I have yet to find anything that even compares to the feel of Riedells. The light weight, perfect fit set up is perfect for ALL of my Skating loves: Jam Skating, Roller Derby, Skate Parks, and just cruisin’.
If I could skate in one place for the rest of my life it would be:
Venice Beach, CA! They have an outdoor session by the beach every weekend. Who doesn’t want to beach skate every day? I always have a great time there.
My personal motto:
“As a role model, you have the world’s attention. Don’t squander the opportunity to be an ambassador of light.”
My favorite music to jam out to:
Pump up Music: “Icon for Hire”, “The material”, “Fire Fly” (mostly female fronted rock bands) I think I want to be a rock star in my next life.
Jam Skating: Old School Hip Hop or Pop Rock
3 words to describe me:
Energetic. Adventurous. Passionate.
3 fun facts that most people don't know about me:
- I love to cook and I am working on a Cook Book: “Hurricane Heather’s Brewin’ Up A Storm In the Kitchen”.
I practice mindfulness and meditate every day.
- I write music, sing, and play the violin and guitar.
Someone I admire and why:
Rink owners. They chose a business that has fluctuated in and out of popularity for decades, and at the end of the day, they stand up to the challenges and do what needs done to make the business a success. Like tending to their customers instead of just skating for funsies all the time! (Which is probably what I would do).
