Nick Riggle is an assistant professor of philosophy at the University of San Diego whose book — On Being Awesome: a Unified Theory of How Not to Suck — recently hit bookshelves. Previously, he was a pro rollerblader who helped shape the sport from its early days. We talk about skitching cars around the cul-de-sac, social openings, and, of course, what’s awesome, and what sucks, about rollerblading.
