Welcome to Roller Skate City!
I’m Effy – I started this website to write about all things skating. I’m passionate about skating and part of a community where we share our skating experiences and new tricks. We also love to show off our new gear!
I was introduced to skating from a very young age but when I had a nasty fall while ice skating, I stopped skating altogether. At 18yrs, I fell back in love with skating when I went to a roller disco with my friends to celebrate a birthday party.
Although it was a very uncomfortable experience (I hired a pair of skates from the rink so they weren’t the best), seeing a family of wheelies having fun reminded me of my love for skating. I remember in particular, an old couple who were holding hands and jamming to the music. It was so cool and made me realise this is a hobby I can grow into with people I love and care about.
Fast forward many years on, I now have a family of my own – a husband & three kids and we are all wheelies (well the baby doesn’t know it yet but he will be!).
Fun fact about me – I don’t own a pair of Moxis. I will get a few pairs, in the future, when my (expensive) kids are all grown and I can afford to treat myself!
If you have any questions or anything you want to share or would like to get involved then feel free to contact us at “firstname.lastname@example.org”. We would love to hear from you.
