*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***

This announcement is to let everyone know that after hosting the SkateLog Forum and its predecessors for nearly 20 years, I have decided it is time to permanently turn the forum over to a new owner and administrator. I cannot think of anyone more suitable to take on that role than my SkateLog forum co-host, Florida skater Jessica Wright. I am pleased to announce that Jessica has agreed to establish and host a brand new skating forum, configured like the SkateLog Forum, but with a new name and a new Web Site. This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

NEW FORUM NAME: SkateDebate Forum
NEW WEB SITE: SkateDebate.com

Default Pads

So I have been doing some research on aggressive skating, and rollerblading in general since I decided to get back in to it. One thing I noticed that has changed is that you hardly ever see anyone wearing pads. Not even wrist guards.

I was watching "Barely Dead" and one part stuck out to me, when one of the guys was talking about how rollerblading was being shunned and had to sort of go underground, he said "and then we decide to get rid of the pad, and it made us much more fluid skaters, as we couldnt fall any more".

This seems really silly to me. Especially as I was reading an interview with Brian Aragon and he was complaining about how a bunch of people on his tour where injured.

So, I guess the question is, why does no one wear pads?

Sure, they may be uncool, but so is a skull fracture.
