High Tide Roller Derby Practice

This last Wednesday I had a chance to meet the girls of High Tide roller derby and witness their practice session. In case you don't know, High Tide Roller Derby is an all women league in Orange County ran for the skaters by the skaters. This league will be strictly flat track, focusing to create a competitive team by going back to the basics. We got together through mutual friends photographer Sam and derby girl Mistress of Mayhem (aka JZ). It was a really a blast to see all the personalities come through as they practice their hearts out. Check out these sports snap shots of their practice.
