|Funny,I never liked words like agresive or extreme as skate terms.Take Brian Wainwright,Steve Caballero and that dood from the vid you posted,their styles and flow are very smooth and unagresive,,just beautiful to watch.There are many very agresive styles out there(Rollerball,Bob Burnquist)and I luv that too.Seems people want to label everything so they can and divide and control.The crew we skate with here in oz are all just skaters,,some of us just wear different foot ware
Skating is skating and like I said earlier,those who dont get it,,dont need too.
: : No one would call roller skates "quads".
: That started only with the inline hype.
: ** Here, it was more of a way to let people know "which" skates you were using. Skaters themselves decided to coin specific terms to help alleviate any confusion. At that time I was skating outdoor marathons which had both types of skates. WE, as a group, brainstormed to create user specific terms other than just "Roller sktes".
: The terms we ended up with were :
: 'Conventional roller skates, Quads, & Eights.'
: 'Blades, inlines, & straights'
: Biff **
: Now, it seems, more often that inlines are called "Aggressive Skates". But I think that is wrong since WE skate on aggressive skates too!
