11 Aggressive In-Line Skating Tips | Rollerblading


Hi, I’m Tim Phang. I’m 23 years old. I’ve been skating for about 12 years. I’m from Arlington, Virginia which is right
outside of Washington, D.C. I’m now sponsored by Universal Skate Design,
and I’m going to be talking to you about rollerblading. Learning to aggressive skate, I recommend
that you make sure that you have a good pair of aggressive skates uh skates that are made
for trying tricks. Generally they have a larger space uh in-between
the central wheels that will give you more room to grind, they also won’t have a brake
uh brakes are pretty dangerous when you are learning to aggressive skate, uh they tend
to get in your way, they can get stuck on things and force you essentially to fall pretty
hard, also if you just learning how to skate, you might want to consider using small wheels
in the center of your frame that will give you a little bit of extra room here uh that
way you don’t have to worry about them catching when you are trying to grind something. Uh when you come to a skating park you want
to be sure that you are courteous to other people uh you know, if you give respect you
give respect and uh in a skate part taking turns uh just understanding sort of where
other people are in the park and knowing what their general lines are that they take through
the park. If lot of people are skating in one direction
you generally don’t want to skate uh in the opposite direction uh you don’t want to be
in everybody’s way. Of course I always wearer the correct safety
gear, uh some of the best advice I can give is make sure that you have the basics down
before you come out to a skate park uh and trying to do something that is sort of above
your skill level. It is really, really important if you want
to prevent injury and continue, and continue to able to skate that you uh that you learn
the basics first, that you gradually work your way up to the harder stuff. You should always skate in a location where
you know it is safe to skate. Uh for aggressive skating you should always
have the permission to skate the area that you and do tricks on that area that you are
skating, there is lot of liabilities involved and uh you could get in lot of trouble for
skating in places that you are not suppose to, so I definitely recommend coming out to
some place of a skate park if there is one close to, if not you can always build your
own obstacles you can build small rails and things about nature and set them up around
your house.

@neokregon2009 Dude, shut the fuck up. You've commented and been marked as spam on every one of these videos. Jesus.

@Ch3mG33k Do you even rollerblade? I see you have no rollerblading on your channel – just science projects. If you were a rollerblader you would be totally into promoting rollerblading and helping others get into it. So why don't you STFU. Maybe you have been sniffing to many of your chemicals?

@neokregon2009 Firstly, you're advertising yourself, not rollerblading. Secondly, I do skate (I've been for almost 6 years now) and I think it's pretty narrow minded of you to think that just because I enjoy mathematics and chemistry I can't be a skater.

@Ch3mG33k I suspect you don't rollerblade because your attacking the actions of other rollerbladers trying to help out other new rollerbladers and make information more available to them. The fact that you have zero rollerblade uploads and zero rollerblade favorites but do have several skateboarding favorites strongly suggests you don't rollerblade. I could care less that your into math and chemistry.

This video sucks!

In fact, if you don't already know all that stuff why get aggressive??
When you don't even know what it is!!

Would it work with this wheels in front and back aggressivemall com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=Eulogy-Wheel-JD-Rep&CartID=3 and this in the middel aggressivemall com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=Eulogy-Wheel-JD-Rep&CartID=3 its for my "Razor yuri pro" 🙂
Or what would you recommend?

hello, i started inline at 12 had an accident and started skateboarding]but i recently tried on a pair of skates and now i can't stop roller blading, it's so fluid and i feel so perfect on skates but my friend is letting me use his and i don't want to keep them for too long so i was hoping somebody could give me the link of a good site to order from and the name of a good brand, i have no real knowledge on aggressive inline other than i love it(:

He is talking about respect and your going to beat him down for it your cool dude every one that disses on this video has no respect for the sport and needs to kindly fuck off, i skate Razor genesys and i love the sport do not down grade or dis on any one trying to make them self's or others better because that just make you lower then you were before you posted a stupid comments

Well…i'm getting roces m12s for my first aggressive rollerblades ( the anti rocker ones…) do you think they're good to start off with??

Im 23 and have skiied for 8 years, but due to funds havent been in 2 years and i miss it. So i was thinking of replacing it with blading. Do you guys think i would be able to get the basics of it pretty quick and if its worth it? Or am i too old for this shit now.

I have an old pair of Rollerblade CH5 that my uncle won in a competition, the front wheel on the right skate is worn down horribly, would it be ok to move the front wheel to the middle of the skate and move one of the back wheels to the front? I bought some replacement wheels and bearings but they wont arrive for another 2 weeks. There is nowhere around where I live that sell skates.

You're never to old for anything! I would recommend saving and getting Razors they aren't the cheapest but they are really good

i live in singapore……. i cant build things around my house cuz my house is a small flat on the 6th floor……. there are no skate parks nearby…….. imma noob skater….. i cant even do transitions… at least i can do a forward crossover but thats it……. wat should i do?

In my opinion, you should just remove all the wheels. Remove the bearings and keep them (if they're still good) and just roll with 4 wheels total. One in the front, and one in the back. If you're using Aggressive Inline skates, and you like grinding, remove the two middle wheels.

@ruckidablackletter, i suggest you should move to somewhere else. 😉 nah isnt the city 1 big skate park, as long as you dont annoy other people, then what's the fuss.

I'm in my late 30s and have been speed skating for about a year. Is it too late in life for me to learn aggressive skating?
