Over 60 and Skating - WW

On my morning walk by the beach, I was fascinated by this senior citizen who was executing some cool moves on his unique pair of roller skates.

Uncle weaving through a row of colourful plastic cones.

I watched him for a while before approaching him. He's Uncle Chow, a 63 retired police officer turned roller skate instructor.

This special skate has wheels that can rotate 360 degrees.
