Fun-fact - our Play Tone Instructor Beth Lawrence is former European champion of roller skating, representing Great Britain coming up in 3rd and 1st! #GoTeam
Street: One of the best ways to explore a city. Some of our fav places to skate in include Hyde Park, Barcelona, Paris and Amsterdam. Many skaters go on adventures like Play Tone Instructor Craig Jiggy - who celebrates life and people on wheels. #TeamJiggy
Ramp, Bowls, Vert: Not one for the faint hearted. Traditionally performed on inline skates, skaters drop in and perform rad tricks! It's not hard to find awesome people in the scene like Chicks in Bowls, Moxi Skate Crew and Planet Rollerskate.
Combinations like Roller Hoop: Why do one when you can combine two! Many people experiment with combining skills. Marawa's Majorettes often perform various circus hula hoop tricks whilst roller skating, you can see Play Tone founders Obie Pearl in action here and Tinuke's Orbit flying high performing aerial and dazzling skate moves.
