Standard

El Jukacabra #777 is opening her bag up to you in this month feature… let’s see what she has in her “Derby Bag of wonders”; I think we might find derby hidden treasures.

Triple Eight – Wrist guards
                        Knee pads
                        Elbow pads
                        Bum savers

Riedell 3 skates
Protect helmet
Sisu mouth guard
Two skate tools
Skate leash (gift from Shaykit )
Extra toe stops and bushings (that came originally with my Riedell 3 skates)

Zipper Pouch ( bandaids, scrunchies, ibuprofens, essential lady stuff* 😉😅)

Acid wash fanny pack ( asthma inhalers, extra change, recruitment flyers)

And I always stuff water bottle,  gfree granola bars in there for practice.

Juju Bag Feature

Question (Q): How long have you been with Derby?

Juju: Going on Five months! Started in September of 2017 . Holy moly time sure is flying by!

(Q): Besides the basic, mandatory gear, what is the one thing in your bag you cannot skate without?

Juju: My inhalers! With out those I could die! Cuz I got that “Asthma“ (insert  whispering sloth meme). 🤣

(Q): Besides the basic, mandatory gear, what is something you think every skater should have in their bag?

Juju: after experiencing two single cheek falls on the same cheek… and having a tender tail bone as a result…. those Bum savers really do just that!

(Q): What is the strangest, or most off the wall, thing you have in your bag and what is the story behind it?

Juju: I guess it would be my Joico Dry Shampoo texture and volumizing spray.  Sometimes we go eat after practice or take pictures… so the hair stylist in me needs her hair pick me up! That helmet hair struggle is real okay! Ha!
