  2. Make Friends
  3. Safety Third*
  4. There is NO rule number 4.
  5. NO CRIMES

Bikes? Skateboards?

Is this only for "Inline Skaters"?

quadrollerskatesold-skaterbuds-300x210We welcome all kinda folks, inlcuding skateboarders, bicyclists, old-school "quad-skaters", and we even had a guy come out on a razor scooter once... he didn't come back but still, we were glad to have him show up once anyhow. I know a guy who said he wanted to come out and run with us, but he never did.

As a rule, bikes won't have much trouble keeping up. Skateboarders fare better if they're the longboard types, but they usually only come out on the downhill runs, like the Noho, Hollywood and Pasadena to downtown LA routes.

 Where Do We Skate?

LAMC-2-8-11Generally speaking, we skate around downtown. Mostly we skate in the streets and sidewalks, but we often wind up in parking garages, parking lots, parks, skate parks and other parky-type places (like the LARP and the AroyoSeco Path).  We skate up and down hills. We skate through stores. Sometimes we even skate on the dirt. 

Simply put, we skate every-damn-where.

 What is a Group Skate?

church Of MoneySeriously?  

Well it's this thing where a bunch of idiots with roller skates get together and go skate around.  Generally speaking it's just a good-time, but it's also a great excuse to get out of the house.

Why Do We Skate?

McArthurParkReason for showing up vary. Meeting new friends, getting some fresh air, getting a workout, training for a race, not training for anything, got nothing else to do, just visiting, you know... pretty much anything can be a reason to go skate!

 How Far Do We Skate?

RindgeHouse1The longest stakes we've done are less than 20 miles, and the average is 11-13 miles. We occassionally skate much less distance than that, especially if we get involved with something fun like a good parking garage or a really hot bartender.

 How Long Do We Skate?

Felix-2-8-11We're usually done by 10pm, althoguh sometimes we do not finish until 10:30 or 11pm. We rarely skate more than two hours; being late is usually because we took the train to or from somewhere.

We have gone straight to the bar and done no skating at all, but only a few times... as far as any of you know.

Skill Level?

The Whole Night Skate Blog

Wednesday, 20 February 2013 12:16

What Should My Skill Level Be?

  • You should NOT be a beginner. 
  • You should be comfortable skating on rough surfaces.
  • You should be comfortable skating down hills, or at comfortable and confident in your braking skills.
  • You should be able to stop. Well. Really, really well.
  • You definitely need to be over 18, unless you bring your Mom... and she should be hot, unless you bring your dad, and he too should be hot.
  • We really don't get too crazy very often, and we try not to skate past anyone's comfort zone... but we do expect you to get comfortable pretty fast.
