GenSan Aggressive Skaters

SHARE:

   Back in the 90s, I remember that Inline Skates or most commonly known as Rollerblades, was popular in GenSan. When I was a kid, I remember that they were active in the place called Halios (now RD Plaza). I wonder why this "culture" easily wane back then.


The GenSan Aggressive Skaters is the Official Open Community of Aggresive Inline Skaters in
General Santos City


   Recently, while walking in General Santos City Park, I discovered that Inline Skating is not totally dead (in GenSan). Because of my curiosity, I research and discovered that one of my fellow SOCSKSARGEN Bloggers, named Champ Biala is one of them. They called their group as GENSAN AGGRESSIVE SKATERS (GAS). I am lucky that Champ is the Secretary General of their group, so I asked him lots of questions.

   To sum up his answers please watch this video created by Champ




   To give you idea what is Inline Skating is, here is the definition given by wikipedia,

Inline skates (often called Rollerblades after the popular trade name) are a type of roller skate used for inline skating. Unlike quad skates, which have two front and two rear wheels, inline skates have four or five wheels arranged in a single line. Some inline skates, especially those for recreation, have a "stop" or "brake" which is used to slow down while skating; most have a heel stop rather than the toe stop, particularly indispensable for inline figure skating.
The modern style of in-line skates was developed as a substitute for ice skates, for use by a Russian athlete training on solid ground for Olympic long track speed skating events. Life magazine published a photo of American skater Eric Heiden, training for the 1980 Olympics, using such skates on a Wisconsin road.[1]
During the late 1980s and early 1990s, Rollerblade, Inc., a company founded by Scott and Brennan Olson in Minneapolis, Minnesota, widely promoted inline skating; they were so successful that their trademarked name Rollerblade became synonymous with inline skates.[2]

A skate is composed of a boot, worn on the foot. To the boot is attached a frame, which holds the wheels in place. Bearings allow the wheels to rotate freely around an axle. Finally, the rubberbrake typically attaches to the frame of the right foot.There are different types of inline skates for different types of skating such as aggressive skating, speed skating, Inline hockey and artistic inline skating. Those differ in the boots, frames and wheels that are used.

   This video is also directed by Bryan Chiong. I am really amazed with this video. It's like your skating by just watching it. Nice direction and scoring. It implies that Bryan is very artistic and creative in his own way.


 



   They are hoping that there will be a Skating Park in GenSan so that they could skate freely. Their temporary turf is in front of GenSan City Hall. If you want to join them, they are open for it.
