Last spring, we took a little trip down to the UK to meet up with friends and skate a bit. One of our stops was Locoskates. We wanted to meet up with Jake (owner of Locoskates) to talk about a few things and also ask him if he had any recommendations for a UK Adapt rider.
At that very moment, some guy walks into the shop that looks vaguely familiar. It turns out to be Dan Collins, who just recently released a Locoskates profile that we both really liked. Dan is there to get some new skates, but everything he tries on just doesn’t feel right. This seemed to be a little bit too much of a coincidence.
After talking to him for a bit, we decided to give him a pair of Adapt skates and we couldn’t be happier with that decision.
Dan is a very nice guy with a good head on his shoulders, he is very motivated and we are happy to finally officially announce him as a member of the Adapt team. Welcome aboard, Dan!
Dan just told us that his good friend Rob Glanville had an unfortunate accident while skating and is now hospitalized. Dan wants to dedicate this edit to him:
“Rob Glanville has inspired me in every aspect of my life since I was 11 years old. If you happen to be lucky enough to know him personally or even if you don’t, please spare a moment for my older brother in his time of need… Our thoughts and prayers are with you and wishing you a full and speedy recovery. This ones for you rob. I love you man” – Dan Collins.
