Cool Ten Year Old Inline Skater Tommy Hoggan from Kirkcaldy, Scotland, Spins and Flips the Street Courses of the United Kingdom

What is it about a young kid only skating for twenty percent of his life that can fascinate and inspire? Maybe it's the low center of gravity, little awareness of pain, and ability to spin without expelling previously ingested appetizers? I don't know, but as much as I love road skating and find most street and vert performances to be a bit repetitive, I enjoyed watching this young Scot hit the ramps. Here's a bit of viddy with more available. If you only look at a few seconds, start at 2:30 or so to the end to see some front and back landing spins and some post ramp flippage. Nice!

In this video, starting at about 1:00 in, he hits a jump, then misses a flip, but goes back again and does it...a back flip off the rim of a vert ramp, landing on the next vert ramp.

Inline Skating Pre-Teens Call to Help Sixty-Year-Old Snoozer Driving on Drugs: Now Who Do You Want to Keep Off the Streets?

Here's one reason to keep street skaters on the road where they belong if they have the skills (just like cyclists who have the skills, and automobilists, too). That way, they can keep an eye on the neighborhood and watch out for the safety of adults who can't control themselves and go out driving around after first buying, then using drugs.

Country Park Friends, Skate Fascination, Schwinn Logos, Making it Look Easy Without Realizing it

On Sunday I was still feeling good after 35 miles with pals checking out the Carolina Century western loop. But it has been a bit of a struggle of late to get everything done (OK to get half of it done) that I would love to do for Tour to Tanglewood, roadskating and the Carolina Century, plus junk I just have to deal with in real life...like getting a little exercise and a host of other not nearly as fun tasks.
