Momma Trucker's is owned & run by myself - Dirty Mermaid, (it was ViolenTina Rossii but recently changed derby name) skater with Exeter Roller Derby, mum of two & avid sparkly hot pants wearer.
Momma Trucker's is located on Cowick Street in the area of St.Thomas, just off the city centre. If travelling by train, get off at the St. Thomas stop & walk straight down the road & you'll find us on the left next to the electricians. The area has a great community spirit & wide range of shops & even a park nearby where you can immediately try out any purchases. While the name Momma Trucker is new to the derby world, we have been trading within it for many years prior as Dude Where's my Pants? A range of hot pants suitable for roller derby, the bright colours & options for customising to suit a derby name has made them very popular. As well as selling online through the website & Etsy, we have travelled locally (& not so locally) with a car crammed full of stock to sell at bouts.
Momma Trucker's is a family run business, although Nanna Rossii has recovered from the mutant radioactive cat bite, she usually can be found most days either at the shop helping out & offering food (to customers too!) or track side with the stall cheering & shouting with the best of them. In the few years we have been open her skate & roller derby products knowledge has grown exponentially & would rival many younger skaters! We occasionally have my pint sized helpers on hand, who love to be a part of it.
Starting with a pair of very retro plastic Fisher price skates, I have skated since I was very small, growing up as a self taught skater with no one else nearby to pass on their skate knowledge it took joining a local roller derby team in 2012 to really get the hang of a lot of skills. As well as park & ramp skating, playing roller derby, coaching our junior team & new recruits & general arsing about on skates, I also run 3 junior ‘learn to skate’ classes a week..
What makes Momma's Unique from other skate shops is our range of pre loved roller skates, they are fully serviced & fixed up where needed, we also offer skate MOT's & restorations & also will custom design onto skates. Please contact for an up to date list of the sizes & styles in store.
