What We’re About
REUSE . REPURPOSE . RECYCLE
Resurrection Skates first opened in Dallas, Texas in 2013. To our knowledge, this was the very first store of its kind that focused new AND RECYCLED skate equipment. Our love of roller skating and roller derby combined with our passion for reducing, reusing and recycling is the dream of founders Sydney Smith aka ODB, Weapon X, Anita Riot, and Danny Beaver. Resurrection is an independent and privately held company and the founders manage the day-to-day business.
Our purpose and mission is to provide an affordable, conscientious option to our customers, give back to the community by purchasing gently used items, provide a fair return to its owners and achieve sustainable profitability.
Our new inventory comes from well known brands such as Luigino, Atom Wheels, Bionic, SISU, and more. We are adding inventory daily to provide you with the very latest and greatest skating gear.

ODB retired after 6 seasons skating with the Dallas Derby Devils.
Anita RiotFounder / Training / Sales
Riot started playing roller derby in 2005. She'd grown up dabbling in team sports and skating the streets of suburbia in her inlines or on a skateboard, and was no stranger to the polished wood of her hometown skate rink where the Dallas Derby Devils held their practices.
Weapon XFounder / Training / Sales
After escaping from a secret army training camp, from which human weapons were being finely handcrafted was the first time she remembered who she was. The doctors had erased her memories. The pain of the experiments was never to be retold. She was by far the best at what she did.
Danny BeaverFounder / Skate Nerd / Mentor
Danny is a skate nerd and knows everything about skating. He is very anti-social and does not like big crowds, this is why we love him.
