Irene Ching Santa Monica Cove 2007
Duke Rennie Frontside air Santa Monica Cove 2007
I’ve been out in LA skating, just getting back to reality here in NYC.
I will send you my collection of photos, both past and present.
And with more patience, I will write some stories for your fabulous site.
Pic of me and the frontside air is Duke Rennie (famous vert rollerskater from the 80’s)
at Santa Monica “The Cove”.
Thanks alot, Irene
Since Irene is going to contribute her amazing photos to The House of Steam it is only fair to shine a light on something she holds near an dear in return (i.e)…Vert Roller Skating.
“But what does Vert Rollerskating have to do with The House of Steam?” you ask. Well for starters Irene Ching is an NYC/Barn local from day one and Brian #1 in the world Wainwright is on TEAM STEAM…..
Let’s reference the Team Steam Charter of 1987:
There it is in red and white. Brian Wainwright Vert Rollerskater extraordinare a Team Steam member.
(We will come back to Brian, I just wanted to establish our VR cred at THOS)
Vert Rollerskating is pretty sick especially when folks skate frontside. Try standing up with your heals together and imagine doing a frontside tick… its crazy.
Duke Rennie is one of the greatest Vert Roller Skaters of all time and you can read all about him here.
in addition here is some You Tube video action from their session.
Brian Wainwright and Monster Roll!
