Urban Skaters strives to promote fun, socially active fitness oriented skates and increase awareness of skating as a viable alternative mode of transportation. Fitness skating and social gathering is the main focus of the group.
Skaters of all levels are welcome, but experience with sudden stopping and turning is a must.
An off-shoot of Skate Trash and the Urban Animals, U.S. is definitely one of the the best groups of dedicated skaters aroud–bar none. Much thanks and homage is paid to Rusty an all the fantastic skaters that make the Houston street skating scene beyond comparison.
Full protective gear is always strongly encouraged, but, check your local laws for mandatory helmet regulations and other possible municipal restrictions before skating on the open roads…Or just do it..
Skate safe! Please be aware that everyone always skates at their own risk.
Suggestions and feedback are always encouraged.
