Welcome to the Roller Skate Life Newsletter August 2018.

This newsletter is presented by the Es Quint Foundation, powered by Quadsk8 International and supported by Ginger Skates.

Thank you for supporting our goals and activities. In case you just joined in, welcome on board and may your journey through life be a soulful one!

Summer Breeze, makes you feel fine!

Gobal climate change or not, the awesome recordbreaking Summer days of 2018 or well spent on the European continent, both on and off wheels. Still, we managed to do quite some preparation and fine tuning behind the scenes, so we can fulfill yet another dynamic roller skate season, starting the 25th of August.
Fresh riff & routines, energetic seminars and exquisit roller skate events are coming your way. But the urge to roll is so strong, that we cannot hold out till the actual forementioned starting date.
So check out the extra training sessions in the next two weeks to get a headstart with bringing your skills to the next plateau.
Set your own goals and we'll help you destroy them!

Although being on a business trip for her company, founding member of the Es Quint Foundation and ambassador of Soulful Fitness, Gwen Groove Rider didn't let the opportunity slip by to get her roll on, in between and after business hours.

Because it`s always a joy and a blessing to exchange thoughts, ideas, skills and experiences with people from all over the world. Teaming up with local Vancouver skater Chris Neima, they squeezed in some intense jam sessions.
Now how about that, for seizing the opportunity to literally experience a soulful journey!

Thank you Chris, for sharing your time, knowledge, skills and kindness!

Ladies Jam!

Somehow, initiator and Kids Roll Power instructor Mariska, thought it would be a very good idea to call out a ladies-only roller skate jam impromptu, right in the middle of the Summer 2018 heatwave in July.
And guess what?

It turned out to be an awesome jam session, despite the high temperature, with definite follow up plans.
Next one will be in September, so stay tuned for more info!

Next one will be in September @ Es Quint headquarters without the heatwave, so stay tuned for more info!

Tune in and Leg Lift.

The most favorite outdoor roller skate spot in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, Wilhelmina Kade right behind the very popular hotel/restaurant named Hotel New York. Not in the least, because of the smooth and clean tarmac.  

Tuning in with a stiff legged back lift. Stiff legged in this case, means bending the knee as little as possible, while raising the leg from the hip. It really makes a world of difference, in maintaining proper balance. And besides that, when the form is strict, the body is used in a more functional way, which usually makes movements look better (read: funkier!)

Flash-back September 2005:
Pre-Es Quint moment in time.
As part of an Amsterdam Filmfestival with the main theme ` Africa in the Picture`, we had the extraordinary opportunity to meet, interview and hang out with the director of the documentary `8 Wheels and some Soulbrotha Music`, Tyrone Dixon. It turned out to be a very insightful and `satiating` experience for everyone involved.

During our first modestly arranged international roller skate training seminar in May 2015 at the Es Quint Foundation, we presented this documentary as part of the weekend schedule.

Flash-forward October 2018:
