Donation Recipient - Brian Boyd

My good friend Dillon mentioned he knew someone that wanted to start skating. Dillon lives near Raleigh, NC in a town called Clayton. Clayton is near the country. There aren't a lot of spots or skaters in their area, and it's hard for them to get out to Raleigh all the time to skate. Dillon brought Brian to a session and he immediately brightened up the mood. Brian is fun, positive, and was extremely eager to try out rollerblading for the first time.

Brian trying on the different 10's and 11's we have.

Brian decided to go with some Remz. he said he liked how comfortable they were, and the fact that he had different options to buckle, tie, and lace them up.

Brian's first official trick on blades. After getting used to rolling around he decided to just start going for some frontsides. Brian wasn't afraid to fall, and each bail he took he used it to learn how to balance and grind better.

Brian had fun and wanted to make the effort to come out and start skating with us more. Thanks to Dillon for finding such an eager and positive new blader! We were more than happy to give him his first pair of blades.
