What Happened to These Strange Rollerblade Skaters (2019) by David Hoffman

What happened to aggressive rollerblading? In-line skating? The X games presenting rollerbladers? It is a darn good question. It was such a big sport and was growing. 9,000,000 kids–mostly boys and some girls–considered themselves aggressive rollerbladers - just in the USA.

What Happened to These Strange Rollerblade Skaters (2019) by David Hoffman

I got the chance to make a documentary with 2 top competitive aggressive skater teams–in New York City and in Los Angeles. These young people were very friendly to me and I could not have made the film without them. The feature film didn’t make it financially but it was and still is popular with many of the skaters. All of the skaters in my film are of course adults now and their skating days are long gone. Here is an article with some views on what happened. - David Hoffman.
