211: Legendary Vert Rollerskater Duke Rennie stops in on The House of Steam

Jason

I’m a firm believer in 40 is the the new 17. I’m 45 next month. I just received a message from an old friend who is 60 and has recently started riding pools again. This kind of news gives me great hope. I’m planning to do this until I can no longer walk. I will attempt to write something and would love to be included.

You have to turn your head to look at this blast from the past! Frontside 540’s way back in the day….too crazy.

If you have the best of something let people know! The House of Steam and Team Steam have Brian.

Nice One!!

Brian is living and ripping in N.C. and his Brother Morris is doing the same in Seattle.

Hi Jason,

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:

Steam Charter

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.

Tomorrow:

Brian Wainwright and Monster Roll!
