Just bought some rollerblades to get too work and back.

Is this based or cringe?
>>
>>18654
The skateboard kids here will say it's cringe but they don't understand that if it helps you get to work then it's based.

These are the exact kind I got. Rollerblades are surprinsginly cheap only 40 dollars.
I'm just going to use it on trails and work and stuff

I used to go to school on skates back in the day, even cheap skates are pretty good for just cruising. I think it's only """cringe""" if you have bad form and don't know how to brake and stuff, makes you look goofy as shit. Learn how to do some spins too, that's always cool
>>
>>18727
Is braking easy?
>>
>>18731
it really depends on the wheel hardness and the ground you'll ride on. Harder wheels are good on flat street ground, they won't stick to the ground as easy as soft wheels and slide easier. Soft wheels are more fit for reducing impact on rougher ground, these usually come on most cheap skates, I found. If you ever skate on rougher terrain, I'd recomend using the stock brakes to slow down.
>>
>>18737
>>18737
here's some tutorial vids on braking

keep in mind that braking can and will spend the wheels if you do it too much

Is there such thing as technical rollerblading
>>
>>19319
not with that name, I've never heard of that, but there's aggressive and slalom skating, I guess that's what you mean
>>
>>19355
I mean like how skateboarding has street tricks like Rodney Mullen and vert
>>
>>19374
i have only really seen street trick/ skatepark tricks done on quad rollerskates tbf
>>
>>19380
Can I even do tricks on my skates?
I bought the blue ones above
>>
>>19387
Yes of course, it just takes better balance. I found this video helpful https://youtu.be/L8Gs_eyIPFA
>>
>>19374
slalom/dancing and aggressive skating are just that, but those blue skates won't be too good for anything other than cruising, maybe doing some spins. Those skates with harder frames and a gap in the middle are better fot street tricks like grinding and big jumps, as well as vert.
>>
>>18654

It actually used to be huge before it got taken out of the x-games. Nowadays, the only sponsored bladers are usually in europe.
>>
>>18654
Op here just used them
I hate this shit lmao way too hard
>>
>>22057
just go downhill in high speeds, pretty good beginner exercise in my opinion
>>
It's based.

I borrowed some from the library for a week last year. It was very difficult, didn't really learn it. Will try to borrow again this year so maybe I can get better. But I may be too old to learn too, I'd probably destroy myself if I got injured.
>>
>>22224
what kind of library has skates to borrow? The one in my city barely has books
>>
>>18654
Are these things even still being produced? Like I havent seen anybody rollerblading in years.
>>
>>22481
yes, it's just way more niche. There have been a bit of a rise in sales in the pandemic and I think Roces and USD made new models recently

Started practicing my switches today. Tried to jump on a small box then off of it to fakie, it feels like I just have an inch to land and jump again, almost cracked my head twice..

Rollerblading is coming back in 2021 motherfuckerzzz
>>
>>22481
It varies on where you live but in Los Angeles it's been getting more popular lately. There is a big rollerskate group for femoids and i think there might be some company or group that is renting inline blades since I've seen a few groups all riding the same blades.
>>

>>
>>22716
well how has it been since, OP? have you learnt anything already?
>>
>>22057
Just practice on a flat surface. Trust me, you'll learn it quicker than you think you will. Plus it's hella fun when you get the hang of it.
>>
>>22719
I only tried it once so far and it was insanely difficult. It just got warm enough a few days ago.

>>22751
I hope so..I don't want to get hurt ;__;
>>
>>22779
good luck with learning, dude. I'd advise to practice jumping and switching to fakie once you get comfortable just cruising, makes you feel much more in control.
>>
>>22780
Yeah I'm definitely going to keep trying and hopefully ride it all the way to work

I'm gonna say based. you can make it work if you wear tight diving gear and some cool shades. just rip down the street. own it.
>>
>>21524
Yeah dude get back into blades. It's always fun to hit the skate parks when you got free time to do so. (Also aggressives are the way to go in my opinion. Ufs for life)
>>
>>22057
Once you learn how to skate nothing really beats the feeling of just gliding. Minimal effort yet still faster than walking.

If you can watch this and not fall in love with Sakura you probably don't have a heart.
>>
>>25886
Well, if you REALLY can't slide or use the brake, because of the wheels, the ground or whatever reason, you can always develop your arm strength and bash into walls to stop, that's what I did when I was starting.

Two speed skating practices, then I went to the local rink and hit the Sunday sesh to practice some jammin'/flatland stuff.

Now that I got some space, need to build a p-rail and practice some grinds.
>>
>>25886
Get some pads and you won't be afraid of hitting your hands or knees on the ground or walls. Use that to build up your confidence and when you start to fall fall on the pads. Then start to learn how to do hard stops by turning your blades horizontally so they can't roll anymore and when you fall practicing that land on your pads. You'll get it.

>>>/out/ obviously is the more appropriate place for that. Also fly fishing is too hard, I tried before didn't catch shit so I whipped out a spinning reel and caught a whole fucking pile in minutes lol. Casting with a fly rod is fun though.
>>24800
Pretty easy not to hook yourself, the way you whip the line around it should be well over your head, or out to the side. And really there's about as much danger hooking yourself with a regular spinning rod and reel.
>>
>>25765
Literally just got my first skates since I was a kid last Friday, so Saturday I took them out to a (non-skate) park and just practice on the paths and basketball court. Didn't manage to learn how to stop lol but got comfortable taking sharp turns, skating on one foot, and so on. Had a great time, but I got some minor cold that kept me in on Sunday despite being a beautiful sunny day, and now I'm feeling 100% again but it's dark and stormy outside. Guess I'm just gonna roll around my house.

Here's a great video on three good beginner/intermediate stops:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NWrDAi3aZLs

Also, invest in some hip pads. Gform is good, there's a few different brands, but when I started I just bought football-style hip/thigh pads and cut off the thigh pads. This will be especially helpful when you start trying parallel slides. Bruised hips hurt like hell and one good fall takes you out of the skating mood real fast.
>>
>>19374
there were quarter-pipes in the local park where i grew up, i used to ride em up and down with my roller blades all the time, you can also jump from one surface to a higher one with some pracitce (start from curbs and work your way up)


a quick youtube search got me this
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DbH0_xqR26c
there's close to nothing when it comes to flatground, the "tricks" you do are mostly characterized by what obstacles you can leap past

Do you wonder how she screamed? Do you think about how he had to ask her to lower her voice as she experienced her first real man's cock? How do you think it felt for her to have her womanhood taken by a more experienced, satisfying male than she was used to? This experience is mutual between that tight-assed 18 year old at my skatepark and your gf.

why not? It's easier to position your feet. A beginner rollerblader can learn an easy way to do tight turns and maneuvering way faster that a beginner skateboarder. Jumping on rollerblades is also easier, it's just jumping, while you have to pop the board and have proper form to land.
