Better Bearings Welcomes SAMANTHA TRAYHURN / MARMALADESLAM to the Team
SAMANTHA TRAYHURN / MARMALADESLAM
Sam started her roller skating with Paradise City Roller Derby on the Gold Coast. She skated with the league at local, national and international bouts between 2014-2017. In 2017, she tried her hand at the FIRS rules-set and loved the fast and dynamic gameplay. She competed at the 2017 World Roller Games in Nanjing, China.
Roller skating changed for Sam in early 2017 when she was taught to drop in by veteran ramp skater Fink at Derbyfest. She now resides in Sydney where she is focusing on her newfound love of ramp skating. She loves the freedom of skating and pushing herself to achieve new tricks. Some of her favourite things include jumping off obstacles, skating things that people say she shouldn’t, and strange or secret spots.
Sam can be found rolling at least a few times a week with the Chicks in Bowls Sydney crew, showing beginners the basics at local skate nights, or teaching the occasional RollerFit class. She loves the way the skating community is one big family and loves taking her skates wherever she goes. One of her favourite roller skating moments was skating on the Great Wall of China.
