February Featured Skaters

We got so many great nominations for this months featured skater. As it's our first one, we decided to choose not one, but TWO awesome rollers. They each win a Chuffed prize pack, and will be featured on our Instagram. Meet them below.

First up, congratulations Grace Robertson (aka @gracerollertson)

Pronouns: she/her

How long have you been roller skating for?
2 years.

What is your favourite thing about roller skating?
Taking heaps of slams and then finally landing something you've been trying for ages.

Where is your fave place to skate?
I think it's not the place but the fun skating pals that make for the best rolls. I do love a good stair set or mini ramp session though.

What are your skate goals for this year?
Pretty keen to try some more vert skating this year!

Who inspires you?
All the beautiful humans I have met through roller skating over the past 2 years.



Second up, congratulations Lucian Galbraith (@lucianodeer)

Pronouns: He/him

How long have you been roller skating for?
2 years.

What is your favourite thing about roller skating?
The improvement I've felt towards my chronic pain because of the muscles I've been able to work on. That and the amazing friends

Where is your fave place to skate?
That has gotta be the Wynnum-Manly boardwalk, as there's the Bayside breeze, and it's just lovely.

What are your skate goals for this year?
I want to become a bouting skater in roller derby and also be able to skate on a half pipe without wiping out.

Who inspires you?
My friends are a large part of my inspiration. Shanygne actually inspired me to return back to derby after covid hit last year and I'm so thankful for that.
