| ||That post made me smile. Just be careful not to burst my ego, it's pretty swollen up already, these days.
When I started inlining (after a year of boarding, I switched because I didn't want to wait an extra two years for airs) I still felt like a skateboarder. The only thing I could and wanted to do on my skateboard was carving anyway. When I borrow a skateboard, and I'm lucky enough the trucks aren't too loose or stiff and the bearings are good, I can still make a nice run. Although it's not what it's been, of course.
So I think the biggest difference between me and the average inliner, is experience with the board and the motivation to even take on ramps instead of rails.
