Find out who make ReBoot Roller Discos.
How it started...
ReBoot was formed by Charlotte (left) and Maria (right) as they both shared a huge love for skating.
This stemmed from being members of the local SWAT Roller Derby Team. Roller derby is a fast paced, actioned packed, full contact sport played on quad roller skates.
Their team play games all over the country. You can check out the team and Maria aka Vampira and Charlotte aka Mrs Kripling at:
ReBoot Skate Marshals
"Skating has been a huge part of my life since 2010 when I was introduced to SWAT Roller Derby, it's more than a hobby, it's a passion and a lifestyle.
Although we train up to three times per week with the team we wanted to share the buzz we get from being on 8 wheels with the rest of the community although on a more recreational level rather than competitive!
There has been a huge demand to 'bring back the roller discos' so we're giving the people what they want and having fun whilst doing so." - Maria
"Having children myself I know how much the boys like to be active and constantly learning new things.
Skating is a great form of exercise, especially on the core. It also teaches balance and is quickly picked up, especially by kids!
From a "grown up" point of view (I use inverted commas as the minute I don skates I feel like a child again) it's a great way to meet people, exercise - usually without realising it, and just have fun either doing something you love or learning something new." - Charlotte
Tilly joined the ranks in 2015 after moving to Devon from Sheffield. She quickly settled in and is a firm favourite at our private parties and weekly skate sessions.
Skating speciality: Teaching the basics to give people the confidence to get rolling unaided.
When she's not skating she loves to: Eat cheese!
Steve - literally 'stumbled' into the ReBoot Team head first back in 2014! We'll say no more here but if you want to hear the story, flag one of us down and we'll fill you in!!
As well as being a regular marshall at our Saturday sessions, Steve heads up our Adult Skate Club on Friday evenings.
Skating speciality: An Ex Roller Hockey skater, what Steve doesn't know about skating probably isn't worth knowing!
Jamie - Super organised Jamie heads up all our private parties, he'll make sure your child's party, work outing, hen do or social gathering rolls smoothly! He'll also be the one greeting you at the door for all our public skate sessions.
When he's not at work, he's usually sleeping!
Jay started skating with the local roller derby team but an old injury meant he couldn't compete so joined ReBoot as a marshall in 2019. He loves being on 8 wheels so much he can also be found giving pointers on Friday nights at the ReBoot Over 18's Skate Club.
When he's not skating he fixes windscreens!
Alex - Exeter Uni student Alex started as a full time Crew member in October 2021, he's usually helping out on the door at the start of sessions and gravitates towards the jelly snakes on the tuck shop by the end of the session!
Tallulah started her roller skating journey with North Devon's DASH Roller Derby team. We are very lucky to have Tu as our newest skate marshal and she's all set to give tips and advice to get you rolling.
