A skate/surfshop in my city's having closing sales, so I'll have a look if I can catch myself some parts.

Yup, these are aggressive skates. Because of the system of attaching your shoe into it instead of having your foot float around in a one-size-fits-none boot it gives you a very controlled and responsive ride. At least, it's what I've learnt from the switch from USDs.
Oh yeah, here's a little edit a friend of mine made: http://www.youtube.com/user/Electriciteit#p/u/3/eBSK0zvH9RA
Unfortunately it's not at the pool.
