|: Whats the reason for switching to inlines? Sponsors?? I think inlining is easier, but when I have my roller skates on, cant compare the happiness!
The switchings happened at the early phase of the inline boom. Inline was very new and exciting back then. One reason of switching to inlines back then I could imagine was that it was possible to make some money out of your talent. There never was a lot of money in vertical roller skating.
