We all know Inline skating was Huge in the 90s, and the late 90s. Early 2000s the popularity of this sport started going down and never really came up.
Various people have tried yo explain what happened, but the truth is to me, none of the reasons ever made sense. Lately, i have been thinking a lot about what i can do to help skating the best way i can, and that's one of the reason why I started this YouTube channel.
in this video you will see why i think inline skating / rollerblading, / blading or whatever you want to call it has a identity problem.

Melissa started skating when she was 15/16 years old. She skated for a few years then she had stopped skating for another 5 years. She got back into skating in 2012. Went in and out of skating periods due to injuries.
Before she had quit skating she had fallen down 20 stairs trying to do a rail. She splits her knee open and dislocated her thumb. Also when she started skating again she had gone through 18 shoulder dislocations in a 2 year period then proceeded to have surgery on her shoulder.
She loves to skate because it's fun. When she started skating again she vowed she would never quit ever again. She wants to be a 100 year old doing back farvs! Also skating is why she pushes herself to travel. She loves meeting people from all over the world. She gets to travel and feels like she has a large blade family. Blading is just fun, now she has a passion to promote females in rollerblading so that's what she's always working on.

First of all, thank you to everybody who paid for or even just watched my last part with Ian Walker. It's hard to say whether this piece could have came out the way it did without the support of all of my friends and even more so the support of complete strangers. I started this one with a broken heel, and without everybodies help, I don't think I could have finished it. So thank you. - Geoff Phillip (Video on Sellfy).
Filmed by Carter LeBlanc. Additional filming by Tad Tregeagle, Nick Swan, Mykel Fatali, Zach Pavel, Erik Bill, Austin Foogie Bartels, Dan Bird, and Sean Keane. Filmed in Seattle WA, Denver CO, Salt Lake City UT, and Boise ID.
Trying way too hard to get an ender for Ian Walker and I's last piece, I bruised the fuck out of my heel and couldn't skate for a while. Finally managed to finish this up, after months and months of waiting to be healthy enough to put a couple more nails in the coffin.
With the support of all of my friends, and strangers, who've bought this piece, I've been able to stay in Seattle the past month, working hard on another one with Carter. Without you guys, these projects DO NOT HAPPEN. You are supporting rollerblading directly, and for that, a thousand thank you's. - Geoff Phillip (Video on Sellfy).
