    This thread makes me sad because I kind of miss skating :( At the same time I don't miss all the bitching and the drama so I suppose I'm happier in a way...meh

    I made my first serious attempt at crossovers this week, I've got one foot in front of the other so far :P lol




    ^ Tegoz, did you give up skating?

    Haven't updated here for ages!

    After months of debating with myself, I finally made the move from skater to ref last month. Basically, I love Derby, and I love skating, but I really don't like contact! I tried and tried to get past it, but realised I was pushing myself to do something I'm not cut out for. I'm totally happy with the move, and loving every minute. OMG it's so hard to get your head around the rules, spot everything thats going on in the pack, and spot them in time to call penalties, but it's brilliant! I have a lot of work to do on my skating, but my transitions and derby stops are slowly getting there!

    We have our first home bout of the season tomorrow, and I'm down to do trackside repairs and a stint on the Merch stall. I love getting involved, even if I'm not skating!

    Thought I'd post a pic taken last week - we had the London Roller Girls Rec league down to scrimmage with us, and got a rare pic of our ref crew all together.
    Hiya - I'm Emma!

    I keep coming back to the idea of taking up roller derby and there's a team nearish to me with practice I could probably actually get to. I haven't skated for about 15 years maybe more and I was never particularly good at it. I'd quite like to practice just skating before I get in touch with them but I wouldn't even know where to start with buying skates
    Got: Left Ear: Lobe (19mm/5mm/1.6mm), 4xhelix, 5mm conch

    Right Ear: Lobe (19mm/5mm/1.6mm), inner helix, orbital (Top)

    Other: 4xtongue (2/2.4/3.2mm), septum

    Do it!!!!! I was hesitant at first but don't regret it at all. I looked ridiculous for the first while but that's ok. As for skates, I'd see if anywhere close by sells them in store so you can try some on (the sizing can be a little different and you don't want mis-fitting skates). Otherwise, look for local-ish online retailers and talk to them about sizing. I know some of the Canadian retailers will get you to trace your foot etc to make sure you get a good fit (worked for my first set). Also rookie packages are a cost efficient way to get all basic gear in one go.
    Piercings: 9/16" & 6g lobes | 8g septum | some others
    Other: 1 cutting | some tattoos

    I remember watching roller derby as a child.
