The Derby Dozen by Smith Episode #8

The Derby Dozen, 12 questions 1 person a whole lot of information passed along to the rest of us.

1- Whats your real name and derby name?

Heather Alva / Kam N. GetIt

2 - How long have you been involved with Skating?

I've skated all my life. I've been playing Roller Derby since August 2008 and will continue until my body tells me otherwise.

3 - How did you become involved with Roller Derby?

A friend asked me to join with her and I've been hooked ever since!

4 - What teams are you skating with?

The Camel City Thrashers

5 - Flat Track or Banked?

Flat Track - although I would LOVE to try out a banked track!

6 - If you had to chose between taking a killer rock block or loosing a toe stop mid-jam?

Hmmmm, I guess the killer block. I use my toe stops a lot for transitions and backwards blocking and I'd most likely fall face-first if I didn't have them.

7 - Whats the best part about Roller Derby?

What isn't the best part of Roller Derby? You get to skate, meet new people, travel, gain a whole new AMAZING family, get funky bruises, and play this amazing sport where no matter how "different" you are - you will fit in!

8 - Chocolate or Vanilla?

Swirl?

9 - Whats the best hit you have given?

We were playing a home bout and I hit this very tiny jammer and she went flying out of bounds and the crowd went crazy!! I had so many fans come up to me after and tell me how "epic" that hit was!

10 - Worst injury?

Hmmm, breaking my tailbone. It still hurts to this day and it happened in 2011!

11 - Gear specs? The Variety pack of Roller Derby: Crazy Skates DBX5 boot Venus Plate Atom Jukes Super Reds Bearings Smith Scabs Psycho Knee Pads Smith Scabs Gaskets ProDesign Elbow Pads Atom Wrist Guards Sisu Mouth Guard Triple8 Helmet

The Derby Dozen By Smith Episode #7

The Derby Dozen, 12 questions 1 person a whole lot of information passed along to the rest of us.

1- Whats your real name and derby name?
Krista Young aka Lil Shanksta
 
2 - How long have you been involved with Skating?
Going on 3 years now.
 
3 - How did you become involved with Roller Derby?
I had a friend on the west coast who got into it. She thought it was something I would enjoy and told me to look into it. I knew from the moment I saw it, that it was something I wanted to do.
 
4 - What teams are you skating with?
I am head coach and also a skater for the Wicked City Derby Damez

5 - Flat Track or Banked?
Flat track for now, but my league has plans for the future to be a banked track league. I do love the banked track. We are pretty close to Austin TX and I have to say I have enjoyed every minute I have been lucky enough to spend with my wheels on the banked track.

6 -If you had to chose, taking a killer rock block or loosing a toe stop mid-jam?
I would rather take the hit. My recovery time is pretty quick and I spend a lot of time on my toes so I'm going to need those stops! .
 
7 - Whats the best part about Roller Derby?
Ha! I couldn't choose if I wanted. For me it's a toss up between the bonds you make, the physicality of the game and the emotion that stems from that, and the sense of pride and confidence I have seen it give people.

8 - Chocolate or Vanilla?
Chocolate!!!!
 
9 - Whats the best hit you have given?
I remember one game I was blocking a much larger opponent I turned around and stuck a mean pivot block to her. I don't know if it was really hard or I caught her off guard but her face went form normal concentrated skating face to "hulk" mad, crazy face and she let out this terrible noise. It was hilarious.

10 - Worst injury?
I'm lucky enough to say that my worst injury was a large separation in my shoulder.

11 - Gear specs?
187's, Scabs, and bonts.
 
12 - Where do you shop for all your gear?
Medusa skate in Austin TX. and Switchblade skate co, in Oklahoma city. switchbladeskate.com

Angelena DeLucia / Vonda Kut-A-Vitch

2 - How long have you been involved with Skating?

Roller Derby about 5 years now.

Shasta Roller Derby Assassins is my home league 

5 - Flat Track or Banked?

I play Flat track, but Banked is SO fun!

6 - If you had to chose, taking a killer rock block or loosing a toe stop mid-jam?

I’ll say loosing a toe stop because I dunno what “killer rock block” means hahaha

7 - Whats the best part about Roller Derby?

That’s a tough question. For me its all of it is amazing!

8 - Chocolate or Vanilla? Vanilla- What why Choose?!?

  I guess Vanilla because you can make it chocolate.

9 - Whats the best hit you have given?

I’m not such a strong hitter, usually more positional blocker. I have heard it hurts when I get good hip checks in- they blame my boney hips.

10 - Worst injury?

Worst injury I have had (and I’m way lucky) is a separated AC joint.

11 - Gear specs?

I skate on Riedell 495’s with revenge plates, atom or rollerbone wheels, Smith leopard knee pads (with Gaskets), poor joy wrist guards, 187 Elbow and Triple 8 or S1 of helmet.

12 - Where do you shop for all your gear?

Online. Nothing local boo! Cruz Skate Shop or Wicked Skate shop are usually what I go to first.
