We are excited to announce our new sponsored skater Nikita Elaine.
Skating since 2007, Nikita (just 16 years old) is a triple threat, she skates Ramp, Junior Derby and can also Jam Skate. Nikita has always enjoyed coaching and is practised in breaking down concepts into palatable chunks of information efficiently & effectively. She currently coaches learn to skate classes and aggressive ramp workshops for Skatescool Australia and also works in their skate shop when needed.
Nikita also played roller derby with Lil Adelaide Rollers (derby name was Trip Trap Slap) for around 2 – 3 years, but eventually stopped to concentrate on her Ramp Skills. She discovered Jam in 2014 and finds ham a huge amount of fun and extremely challenging. While she only spent about a year practising, she still loves busting out moves to tunes.
Nikita’s true passion lies on ramps. She has been ramp skating since 2011 and loves every minute of it. When she first began, she was completely unaware there were other roller skaters who also shared her passion, so she invented/learned all her skills from scratch. This means she has a unique skill set and years of experience pushing the boundaries of what she could do. She is also sponsored by Chicks in Bowls (CiB).
A couple of highlights of her skating career from the last couple of years includes: Planning, hosting and skating in the 2016 TGSSSS (The Great Southern Slam Skatepark Showdown) through Chicks in Bowls Adelaide with some of the best skaters from Australia and New Zealand. She was also sponsored by Newcastle Roller Derby League to attend the 2013 Rollerpalooza, a national ramp skating event in Newcastle, NSW. She participated in advanced demos for Melbourne Roller Derby Shredageddon and Rollerpalooza 2013 & 2015 & 2018.
