On The Edge... Again

The last time I skated regularly, you needed 2 pair of skates, a scribe and skated patch. Triple jumps were almost unheard of, so were Bielman spins. Twizzles were only done by ice dancers and Ronald Regan was just elected into office.


Fast Forward 32 years. Starting January 2, 2012, I am back on the ice doing something else that was unheard of .... Adult Figure Skating. We had "coffee club", which was like adult swim, but there was no opportunity for testing or competition.

More Bay Area Skating.....

Skated Monday at Dublin Iceland.  This is raw footage of part of my practice session toward the end.
I met another adult skater named Sharon who used to work at Berkeley Iceland.  She knew my childhood coach Tony Howard!   When we finished skating she took off her figure skates and put on hockey skates and gear and played pick up hockey with 20 + guys...  amazing.
