Skating has been a hobby of mine for going on 2 years now. For the past year, i have been focused on one type of skating. Downhill. Nothing matches the feeling of going fast and the rush of skating downhill.the skills and confidence needed took a while to learn but are worth the blood, sweat, and tears.
