Why roller skating has returned during coronavirus



Why roller skating has returned during coronavirus

Quarantine boredom? Meet your partner.

Along the empty sidewalks, empty parking lots and the ghost town of Times Square, roller skaters returned to power. Google is looking for interest in retro shoes skyrocketed to a height of five years in early May – about the time of lockdown confinement also began to peak.

And if the movement has a mascot, it must be actress Ana Coto. 29 years went viral on TikTok for a fun and contagious video, skating (often retarded) through the sun of Southern California with positive vibrations.

Arrogant social arrogant videos, now a trend that can be certified in video applications, reaching 31.2 million views each, with positive comments such as “Do I want to be him? Or do I want to be with him? “And” Run me above you goddess. ” TikTok’s fame has turned him into the leader of the spiritual ring into a newly printed tribe (and just appreciated) quarantine rollers. It was a hobby that we never knew we needed, that’s when we really needed it.

Coto said that he had been trying to find friends to wear roller skates for years. When COVID-19 struck, they finally listened.

“Many of those people come out of wood like, ‘OK, you convinced me,'” the former dancer who now lives in Los Angeles told The Post. “You can do it yourself and have fun, and that’s practice.”

In his most watched video, Coto wore a white jumpsuit, matching sunglasses and a coronavirus mask – peeled at the right time to reveal a sharp look.

Coto, best known for his role in the 2014 horror film “Ouija,” says his TikTok fame has been a welcome disruption since his lockout made his acting career on hold – although the hobby has led to at least one role, as a roller co-mate entered. 2018 Tove Lo indie film “Blue Lips.” Now, instead of going to auditions and callbacks, he looks for holes-free streets, and give a maneuver tutorial to his expanded online fan base.

Now, countless TikTokers post their own quarantine skating efforts – in various degrees of elegance. Coto said he and other OG rollers were happy to see him, especially those wearing helmets and wrist protectors. Let’s just say, the learning curve is steep.

It’s no coincidence that Roller Bling has taken off during the pandemic – cycling has experienced a similar revival, with long lines spilling over from shops in New York City.

And although the indoor arena is off limits for now, there are many open paths to practice. Plus, it is an interesting type of activity that can be a mood booster for passersby.

“Especially in quarantine, everyone feels a little more aware of the importance of human relations,” he said.

He and others have found that this is a way for young people to feel connected remotely to an older generation with skate rink memories. That can be very painful when visiting with relatives is off limits, Coto said.

“Your grandparents, parents, they all have a history with him,” he said. “Many young people see that it is interconnected now.”
