Kelly Matthews has been a staple in the NYC skate scene for over 15 years. She is 1 of the 2 ever World Champions from the NYC area (along with former FR team mate Ryan "Riggler" Jacklone. With accolades to her credit such as: being honored as one of the “50 Best Female Athletes” by the Women’s Sports Foundation at the 25th Annual Salute To Women’s Sports Awards, to being featured in their book titled
“100 Greatest Women Athletes” in 2003. Along with X Games, Gravity Games, and Goodwill Games medals to boot.

In a male dominated industry Kelly helped solidify the females place in rolling sports. For over a decade & a half she has continued to be presence & an influence to women & men alike both inside & out of skate culture.

Current day Matthews continues to be a force in the NYC skate community. Attending & participating in events & still shredding the streets of NYC, Jersey & abroad.

We celebrate Kelly, her 17th year of skating & all she has done for the skate community at her 29th Birthday Bash...

I Roll NY 3rd Year Anniversary Party

Props go out to Craig B & all who make I Roll NY possible.
This website is a vital component in our survival as a culture.
Please continue to support Rollerblading & NYC skate culture.

NYC has had for many years one of, if not, the strongest skate scene in the world.
We are a group of passionate & dedicated individuals with a common thread - rolling...

Last Friday night saw a showing of this powerful community @ the I Roll NY 3rd Anniversary Party.
The likes of NYC staples such as Jon Ortiz, Joe DeDentro, Harry Disla, Billy "Fish" O'neil,
Victor Callendar, Christian Batista, Danny Salazar, Jon Stephens, Ramelle Knight & many others were on hand to celebrate 3 years of NYC's skate culture scene's cyber presence.

The drinks flowed, videos played & good times were had by all. Thanks go out to Kyle Radminski &
the Billy Hurricane's staff for hosting yet another memorable night.

Below is a visual re-cap of the evening.
