Internationally, many skaters have been skating in skate parks for a long time, but in Vienna and Austria they have been a minority. Nevertheless, the Austrian offshoot of the international CIB (Chicks in Bowls) movement, CIB Austria, or the Rollergang Austria, which have been very active for several years.
Meanwhile, more and more people on roller skates can be seen in the parks. At first, skating in the park can be very challenging and intimidating, but after you get over it and get the basics down, it's insanely fun. We want to motivate and encourage skaters to create space for themselves in the skatepark and not to be deterred by other park users with skateboards, scooters etc. Sometimes there is still astonishment when you show up with roller skates, but that is usually over quickly and has also improved a lot in the meantime.
