Meet Our Team
Founder – Godfrey Rice
Born in 1990, Rice is a skating expert who fell in love with it as a sport and recreational activity at the age of 9. He does inline skating as well as roller skating. Throughout the years, Rice has built up an impressive collection of skating gear and honed the essential know-how. During the pandemic, when he was kept from hitting the skate park, Rice founded Cora with his roommate Gibson to share his skating knowledge and experience. The goal is to make skating more accessible to everyone, regardless of gender, age, and ethnicity.
Co-Founder – Roman Gibson
Gibson is a hardcore fan of ice skating competitions and roller derby. He knows all of the ins and outs and loves sharing about them with others. Before co-founding Cora with Rice, Gibson worked at an established skating center where he was able to see the elegance and excitement of skating first-hand. In addition to Cora’s overarching goal, Gibson’s personal goal is to get more people to appreciate skating as an art and leisure activity.

What people say about us
There is a skate park a few blocks from where I live, and every weekend, I would go there to watch others skate. This year, I am hitting the park on my own skates and showing off fancy tricks! All thanks to Cora! I wish I had found this blog earlier.
I’ve always been interested in skating but held back from learning how to skate because of the seemingly complex know-how around it. Thanks to Cora, though, I’ve set my mind to mastering skating by the end of this year. I bought my very first skates last month and have been practicing non-stop since.
