West Seattle resident Mo Sanders eats, sleeps and breathes roller skating

By Lindsay Peyton

By day, he runs a business devoted to his favorite sport Grn Mnstr Roller Sports, an online wholesale company that serves up the products he designed and created to help skaters. The company is known for Antik Skateboots, Heartless Wheels, Gumball Toestops, as well as other skate –related apparel and accessories.

In the evenings, Sanders is almost always in the rink – either coaching the Rat City Rollergirls, training for the men’s team he helped create, the Puget Sound Outcast Derby, or just unwinding and having fun on four wheels.
Sanders, also known as Quadzilla L.K., has competed internationally in inline skating and roller derby, and even starred in a television show based on bank track roller derby.

His journey began simply enough. The self-described “rink rat” who grew up in Tacoma took a job at a skate shop right as the inline craze started in the early 1990s. He received a sponsorship from a local skating company and started traveling the world, visiting various skate parks, signing up for different competitions and learning all about the products in the industry.
