Thinking a lot about inspiration and motivation lately as I look to re-invigorate my own skate practice. I went back to some of the videos that were out when I first started skating (almost 10 years ago). I’m reminded that what attracted me to this type of skating was the musicality, the finesse and the smoothness of the moves.
Here’s a collection of videos that inspired me over the years, I hope you will enjoy them as well!
No excuse not to practice!
This was the place, and the people that started it all for me. Cal Skate Milpitas.
The Soul Skate event takes place in Detroit, Michigan over Memorial Day weekend every 2 years. I finally had a chance to check it out!
It’s kind of crazy how I grew up here and had no idea about the rich skating culture that has existed there for decades. Thanks to the Soul Skate crew for an amazing time!
Here’s a few videos to give you a glimpse of the action.
The skate crews were out in full force with killer routines!
I even got to witness some of MY favs in person!
You can watch the entire playlist here. Enjoy!!
One of the biggest obstacles that new or returning skaters face is the fear of falling.
Surprisingly, it’s not always the bumps and the bruises that will keep you down, it’s your mindset.
Watch below as I string together some sentences on the topic of falling.
Note: I do mention some fundamental techniques that are not actually shown in the video. For safety, I highly recommend learning those with an in-person instructor.

More videos to come on various aspects of skating, so stay tuned!
