Roller Skate Class – April 4, 2015

We had a great time at The Church of 8 Wheels skate class this weekend!

These great students quickly learned the duck walk, basic stride, and stopping, so we set up a slalom course to introduce a bit of turning. I challenged skaters to make sure to keep their heads up, looking ahead so that I could get a photo of them as an everlasting skate memory.

Needless to say, they did great! But my photo skills needs a bit of work. The skaters went so fast!
We’ll call these photos “avant garde speed blur,” Artsy right?? 😉
