This saturday we attended beginner park roller skating class, with the awesome Chicks in Bowls Netherlands crew! Evil-Lyn, Lucky 8 & The Hazard of Djoek coached us in ramp skaing, pumping forwards and backwards, toestop stalls, some street skating jumps and turns, and DROPPING IN which is sketchy as hell!
We learned so much and have a ton of tips and tricks now practice in the skatepark! It was super fun, and opened up a whole new world of terrain to skate. In the bowl skating contest at the end i tried to drop in the big bowl and crashed miserably…but it was all super cool and empowering, we made some new friends, and most important, we had FUN!

Sunday we skated from Amsterdam to Zaandam in a roundabout way, and what was planned as a 14km distance test turned out to be a bit longer 22km

At the end we arrived in Zaandam and the entire town smelled like chocolate, a heavy aroma from the cacao factory.

After today’s experience the idea to rollerskate across Korea seems more than realistic.

Saturday we went down from Amsterdam to Utrecht, to a long thin shopping mall called ‘the wall’ with a rollerdisco in it! We skated like 3-4 hours around and around and around…
