People have been wondering why I choose this particular brand of rollerblades. Well, it is because Derby is the best! I love Derby, and I have been a follower for the past five years, since I was a teenager. I’ve meet interesting people who they shared their love for skating. They’ve also told me stories about their experience, their first time trying their board and the feeling of freedom when they finally got it right. They are an inspiration to me, and thanks to Derby that acts as a bridge, I wouldn’t be here and met them.
It is why Derby’s skateboard has become a part of my life. I’ve tried different types of merchandise just to experiment a little. I tried riding the skateboard; it wasn’t easy, but if I mastered rollerblading then this, this is just a piece of cake too to accomplish. What I won’t lie to it is scary at first because of you getting hurt, and don’t get me started on the stunts, they’re so difficult, complicated and scary to get it right. But what I learn when skateboarding is that you will never give up. You will fail the first time, then the second time and then the third time but in the end, you will get it right.
And I did. I cannot describe the feeling, but it is euphoric. So, since then I’ve developed my moves and become a part of a league where I fondly call them my family and allies. They have my back, and I have theirs. We support each other and encourage one another, I’ve never felt so happy and belonged in my life, and it is a good feeling. Derby has brought you to meet interesting people where you call them you best friends. You get to know each other and inspire one another. Because, together, you make a great team and win.
Derby’s supported us, and this is why there are a lot of different teams all around the world. Derby’s skateboard shared our passion for the game and we love to challenge ourselves to do the impossible things, yes they are dangerous, but the thought of beating the impossible is tempting to me. I want to force myself until I’ve to reach my full potential in becoming the best skateboard ever. Of course, I won’t forget rollerblading because it was my first love, so I still have time to roll out. I know I am not the only one who got inspired; there are a lot of others like me who share my passion and their stories inspired by a lot of people who are interested in trying out skateboarding and rollerblading. Without Derby, I wouldn’t be here right now, talking to you and telling you my fun time and experience.
