Medusa Skates

Contact Info: 512-203-7203 Medusa Skates LLC was founded in 2011 by Hunter aka Glitterotica of the Texas Lonestar Rollergirls Banked-Track Roller Derby league The company is based out of Austin Texas and was formed out of a long standing love affair with all things derby. Medusa Skates provides not only the roller derby gear and skates, but great customer service from someone who genuinely cares about the roller derby community. This is my passion and I truly enjoy talking about all things derby and providing any information about my products as well as tips on training or even thoughts of starting your own league. Please email or call with any questions.

Why derby? This is the short version..... Derby is my life. I started skating in 2006 with the TXRD Lonestar Rollergirls in Austin Texas. I wanted to play a demanding, full contact sports. I have been an athlete all my life and was looking into new sports. After enjoying rugby in college, I knew that I needed something intense, difficult and a sport that would challenge me. I looked into mixed martial arts and boxing but didnt know if it was a good fit. I kept hearing about roller derby and kept ignoring it. I remember thinking that it was probably some girly girls skatiing around with silly outfits (which I love now) and fake hits. I decided to go to a bout. I went to see both leagues in Austin- the Texas Rollergirls (flat track) and the TXRD-Texas Lonestar Rollergirls (banked-track). I was pleasantly surprised by the athleticism and the empowerment the women seemed to possess. I knew right away that I was going to be a roller girl! It took over my life and I started training for the banked-track league TXRD. Here I am 5 years later, still feeling an intense connection to the sport and the women of derby and will play until I break. Derby has changed me for the better and I hope it can be as powerful for other women as it has been for me. Medusa Skates is my dream business. Without the women of TXRD, my great friends and family -which includes Mary Queen of Skates of Houston Roller Derby--- this would not of become a reality. Cheers to many years of Medusa Skates that lies ahead.
