Push Dutcher

Lifestyle influencer

 

Kyle Dutcher (better known as Push) began his journey in the mid 2000s making a name for himself in the heart of the Atlanta skate culture. After observing a group of young people performing dance moves on roller skates, at 26 years old, Push decided to revisit his childhood pastime of roller skating. Push was determined to hone his craft with precision. Influenced by the ATL skate style and the JB style of the mid-west, Push blends silky rhythmic dance moves with a hypnotically smooth glide that is true poetry in motion. JB skating originated in Chicago as skaters grooved to the soulful sounds of the “Godfather of Soul,” James Brown. After learning that the ladies at his local rink were drawn to a slower style of skating, Push set out to create a unique style of his own.
