Rockin’ and roller skatin’ at 76

Roller skating is far from easy – those of us who’ve tried it know how often you can end up on your bum or with grazed knees. Given the difficulty involved in just staying upright on skates, it is incredibly impressive to see someone with such talent in this field.

Enter Burt DeZarn, a 76-year-old American who makes roller skating look like a piece of cake. With four decades’ experience and counting, Burt can glide backwards, sashay sideways and even breakdance on his skates.

In this short video, you’ll see Burt’s agility and ability on two wheels. Prepare to be mesmerised by his moves!
