|Bernhard: This site was where i learnt how to make my skates. I just cant believe i didnt join the forum earlier. very friendly atmosphere. i myself dont conform lol, jus annoys me when im tryin to enjoy skatin and ive got ppl hasslin me askin why im not ridin inline.
But as u say, its all about the fun, And ya cant carve wi inlines like ya can on skates. Keep it up man, your skatin is awesome, jus wish i could do side stance. Can only hold it for a bit, then i have to switch back to parallel.
Claudia: If you've ever seen the film roll bounce, theres a bit in it where he goes 'if ya dont fall, how will ya learn to pick yaself back up again'. I personally practised slidin onto my kneepads before i started ramp ridin. better to fall on ya kneepads than crack ya tailbone, lol. as Bernhard says lput more weiht on ya front. My setup is bauer impact hockey boots with wooden plates made out of an old skateboard, aluminium tucks off 2 micro skateboards, and a pair of rollerblade wheels that ive worn the edges flat. theyre 97 hardness. I used to use lower but had higher traction and less speed. but u wanna start low and build up, as once ya balance is better ya dont really need the traction of the wheel. gotta learn to walk b4 ya run lol.
Cant wait to see sum vids of u in action.
