Quoting Mark Korte of Ripstyle Brand:
Even in my days as team manager at USD, I wanted to challenge people to be innovative and be leaders, not followers.
So many of my old team were simply that, a lot of people do not realize that back then the team was so amazing simply because they inspired each other daily. New tricks, variations of old tricks…
The contest is to come up with a new solid trick, it can really be anything. Judges will be Rollernews and the Ripstyle Inline Team. Send in the video (details below), and it will be judged. Bonus points for not taking yourself too serious!
