Still, there remain 24 million skaters in the United States, according to the Roller Skating Rink Operators Association (RSROA).
By 1980, 45 million Americans were on rollers, according to a survey conducted by the RSROA. "All of a sudden skating was you and me and the guy next door," recollects Lee Cole, the owner of the heavily trafficked Skates, on Haight off Golden Gate Park in San Francisco.
And then, as with any mania, "it was like one minute the public had discovered skating," reflects George Pickard, RSROA's former executive director," and then they were back on their polo ponies, or whatever," Skate sales plummeted.
