Joy Rider's backpack essentials:
"When life is really busy, you need a little sugary boost to get your skating stride on top form. I always have little snacks in my mini back pack so I can eat on the go. Oh and of course a little bit of lipstick too so I look fresh and fun while I'm skating."
Laury's backpack essentials:
"Snacks!! Fruits and cereal bars can always be found in my skate bag, along with many other snacks high in energy. Water - it's so important to keep hydrated when you skate, I often take 1-2 bottles of fresh water out with me.
Spare socks & some flats - inexpensive flats are ideal to tuck away in your bag for when you are having to travel across fields to scope out a cool new place to skate.
...and it's never about wearing stinky skate socks in nice fresh shoes, so I always carry a pair of spare socks on me too."
Rebecca's backpack essentials:
"I have a skating bag (bum bag!) which has my essentials, especially for the summer! Lip balm and sunglasses are now a must, along with a skate tool (for those wayward wheels!) and some of my favourite munchies to give me a sugar boost along the way."
Margo's backpack essentials:
"I always have my tunes with me, there is nothing better than dancing down the street on skates and when you have the right song playing, a cloudy day can turn into the middle of summer! Lip balm and water are essentials too and you can’t beat some awesome stripy socks!"
Cheeta's backpack essentials:
"I always pack too much, this is actually a watered down version of what I like to take with me on an outdoor skate! I love my gadgets so my GoPro is on hand to film the action whilst my wireless headphones keep me pumping with some tangle-free tunes. Cap, sunnies, stripy socks and gloss - because you've got to look good when you stack it! (Yep, that's what the plaster is for!)"
