quoting Shannon Joy Rodgers:
Alex put a lot of work into making this section, and I really enjoyed editing it. He’s one of the nicest guys I know and one of the rawest skaters! Enjoy!

I have noticed that in blading there is a heavy imbalance between the amount of males and females.
A female on blades is the exception; men seem to rule the sport in every aspectâ€”from shredding to company ownership to sheer numbers. I take this to be a supreme bum-rush. What are we doing wrong?
One time Frank Stoner and I had a conversation about this and I think he put it best. In sports like surfing, skiing, and snowboarding, there is a strong female following.
Granted they are still male dominated sports, but the ratio of male to females in those sports out weighs rollerblading. Anyways, those activities are more family oriented and I think thatâ€™s one reason the females are plentiful there and not in rollerblading. Families with little girls will go on a ski trip every winter, exposing that little girl to the snow, balancing her skiâ€™s, witnessing demoâ€™s, etc.
That type of exposure at a young age makes all the difference in the long run. But, the rollerblader girls get pretty spoiled for sure.
