Roller Wars Continue...

First there was Fabio...


...followed by some dufus who thought it didn't look so hard...


...which caused some hipster fixie dude to show some truly wicked skills...


...and now this latest volley...



Next? How about a wheelie? Or bunny hopping off onto the floor at full speed?

I don't own a set of rollers, but I borrowed some from a friend a few years back. I took a fall or two and watching these guys is pretty cool. No way I could mimic them.

they're all good, all except that doofus in the 2nd one. ;)

You've clearly got the best soundtrack Marco. And hipster fixie guy really needs to clean up his apartment (and is that his mom who rides on the pegs with him?).

With crazy good skills like that, let's make it Mr. Doofus.

Fixie guy probably wears a long sleeve hoodie and knickers to cover all the bleeding knees and elbows that occurred right after the quick edits...
Nonetheless, I'm impressed and definitely will not be doing any of it at home - CAUSE I DON'T HAVE TO, I LOVE SB WEATHER!

PS: my brother makes his pilgrimage out here in 2 weeks - the 10 degree Central IL weather has finally broken him.

Hahahaha... where is your rollers video? (unless you are #3 or #4, then... total respect!)

Smitty-
Yeah, I dig that song too.

Anony 5:21-
Thanks ....I think.

Druber-
Glad your bro will head west. Does that mean Blvd is in the cards? Or Mothballs? And for you too?

Hopping off at full speed; would that leave skid marks?

Dr. Special-Ed Racket,

You are the physicist here... you know damn well that you'd shoot forward, leaving a 25-foot skid-mark before crashing into the wall.

How about a trade: you email me the true identity of Magilla and I'll learn to bunny hop off the rollers and test the skidding theory... and put it on youtube of course.
