At age 14, I designed my first collection of Skates. Including branding, naming system, technical details and prices. Of course I did design custom wheel sets of various hardness.
Skating was the shit at that moment. I ate, slept and went to the toilet on wheels. 4 wheels, skates, NO SKEELERS! Skeelers were dumb. Of course there were two opposing camps. Bauer vs. Roces, the top brands at that time.
