Blader Spotlight: Ruli Velarde

I caught up with 15 yr old Park City local Ruli Velarde to find out what feed his enthusiasm for rollerblading.   He was first put on (hockey) skates when he was 4 and soon after moving to Park City was introduced to blading.  Since then he has met other bladers such as Mike Dougherty and Angie Smilkis, and their love for blading has been contagious.  It is great to see younger bladers coming up and developing their own style (the hat thing I don’t get either though) as individual rollerbladers.  Here are a few pics I was able to snap of Ruli is less 20 minutes at the Park City skatepark. – Beastmaster
