Lafayette Skatepark September 22, 2014

There’s an international movement of quad roller skaters who enjoy skatepark (“vert”) skating. They’re called Chicks in Bowls, and Colorado recently formed a local chapter. They invited me to come shoot some video at the Lafayette Skatepark in Lafayette, Colorado on Monday September 22, 2014. Three chicks showed up — Syke-O Sarah, Joanna Gruesome, and Catastrophoebe. Here’s what I saw. Artist’s note: A lot of skatepark videos just show off the skaters’...

Denver Skatepark September 20, 2014

A couple roller derby skater friends of mine decided to go goof off in the skatepark on the last full day of summer. So I tagged along with cameras. It was beautiful weather, and looked like a fun way to unwind. For Militia Vandal, it was her first time skating in a skatepark. And for Angela Death, it was her first time this year. Thanks to photographer Shutter Up for his two still photos I used in this edit. The Denver Skatepark is located at 19th and Little Raven, just northwest of downtown. To...

Vagine Regime vs. Caulksuckers – RollerCon 2014

The headline game of Friday night every year at RollerCon is the Vagine Regime vs. Caulksuckers, where the top VR skaters battle their perennial heterosexual arch-enemies dressed in flesh tones. I have no idea how long this friendly rivalry has been going on, but the action is more intense than ever here at RollerCon 2014.

Friday’s action at RollerCon 2014 continues with the Vagine Regime Gray vs. Orange game. This 30 minute challenge features Vagine Regime skaters who are not on the elite Team Vagine.

Denver Skatepark September 21, 2013

On a warm, sunny Saturday morning in September, several roller derby skaters from the Denver area visited the Denver Skatepark. I tagged along with my camera, and here’s what I saw. As you’ll see, some of the skaters were brand new to skating in a skatepark, and some had previous experience. But everyone seemed to have a good time. The Denver Skatepark is located at 19th and Little Raven, just northwest of downtown. To see more of my roller derby and skatepark videos, visit┬áderbyverse.com.

The Vagine Regime’s exclusive cheer squad, the Queerleaders, were bigger and better at RollerCon 2013 than ever before. We had a very full agenda on Saturday, August 3, 2013.

The Queerleaders chanted all the way to the convention center, and then cheered for both the Orange and Grey challenge and the day’s main event – Vagine Regime’s...
