Skater of the Month -

In the grand scheme of things, Tamara might be considered reasonably new to the skate scene, only transitioning to park skating in 2017, but she's fast become one of our favourite skaters to watch shred! We've been following her journey and think we should point out that she's not even close to a fiasco when it comes to rolling. Possibly some of the smoothest rail Slides we've seen, which is probably how she took out the #CIBtrickofthemonth Slides challenge back in July. Get to know her a little better as our Skater of the Month for November!

History -

Why Side-Stance Matters Side-Stance is the #cibtrickofthemonth for August, but more than that, it has deep roots in the origins of Vertical Roller Skating. These days its common to see rollerskaters tearing up skateparks all over the globe, but what you are most likely seeing is all done 'prone'. Flashback to the '70s during the first boom of roller skating and the introduction of skateparks, skaters like Duke and Karen were hitting the transition for the first time, and most of it was all done in side-stance.
