How to Do Fast Slide on In-Line Skates | 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. Fast slides are one of the most difficult
grinds in rollerblading, basically because there’s not much space on your skate that
you actually have to balance against. So, when you do a fast slide, the obstacle
that you’re grinding sits directly between your middle two wheels, and then you essentially
stand straight up on one foot without any lean one way or the other. The faster you go when doing them, generally
the easier they get, but they’re a really hard trick to balance and hold. So there’s a couple of variations of the fast
slide, there’s a front side fast slide and a back slide fast slide, the difference being
which side you approach the obstacle from. When you’re learning how to fast slide, you
want to start on small objects, and you want to start going really slow. You can also practice stepping up to the object
rather than jumping onto it until you figure out where that balance point is. And as soon as you find the balance point,
slowly start grinding earlier or longer objects until you’re able to hold it for longer periods
of time.

@Natsukuchan u idiot do u know wtf ur talking about ????!?!??!?! did i say its cool ??? are u that much dumb kid..

@1243dante your sense of superiority is amusing. I am not a kid and I really was not just directing my comment at you but at all the skateboarder's who feel superior to skaters. I prefer inlines.

@playsbass14 Hey kid, cant u read ? im not talking about my self i gave an example….im sick of all u kids who annoy me……so dont brag about ur self

@legacysage Your opinion makes me understand how people got used to homosexuality….something that is against the human nature , and just before you say its completely natural , tell me please when two people of the same sex have unprotected sex do they get pregnant? NO. And just before I go trust me "Friend" I go out more often than you think , and we are not dinosaurs we are HUMAN!

@yannbane spouting hate? Seems you dont know what hate is my friend, one of the most common things in earth…you dont have the qualifications to judge me!

@liammondou11 ok not all skateboarders are stupid. i like both and i have a very high intelligence si 😛 lol.

@RichardWMHills WOAH WOAH WOAH dude! At least for longboarding fluence is needed. And about grace. Yeah, you're right. No grace needed for skateboarding. It is just sexy in it's own unique way.

Get Xsjado frames and h-block space won't be a problem. I've had my frames for years and they're still good!

@RoyaleInliner beginners that use freestyle frames usually make you develop a lazy and sloppy style, go for the H block frames you'll feel the benefits in the long run.

@MitchellCawte0 My first few pairs of skates had h block frames and were great. I'm a fan of the Xsjados now and I don't have to spend extra money on wheels/anti-rockers.

i learned how to ollie on a board in less than half a day… for inline skating that is some scary stuff at first. learning how to transfer from a ramp at 90 degree angle is hard. you cant stop when things are going wrong. skateboarding is hard because all the tricks and be learned. blading is hard because it requires more of an athlete

My cousin believes that rollerblading is cheating when it comes to the skateboarding. Im just like pshh thatd be like toyota cars cheating cuz of rob dyrdeks "skate-car" hahah

yeah ur average and im not cuz i cant put all my time on practcing skateboarding i cant skate everyday.. i skate one per 2 weeks which i forgot heelflip and kick now… and to behonest skateboarding is fun but doesnt worth breaking ur bones.. not to mention roller blading is dangerouse as hell..

Listen Man, I'm Pissing myself. Rollerblading PROPERLY (Yes, I admit, the basics are quite simple) is hard to do it took me 3 years to learn how to rollerblade properly.(I Started in 2008)

i started rollerblading after 2 ddays i learned to drop in.. yes i pushed my elf 1 day after that i dropped in and fell breaking my arm in 2 places now i have bolts and plates and a perm weak arm… rollerblading is hard…. but im not giving up:)

can anyone tell me whats the difference between roller skates and roller blades? which goes faster, or which is best? please reply, thanks! 😀

Im 11 and I love rollerblading >.>… Scooters are kind of… weird and… old days now LOL. But seriously, skateboarding jerks are just… rude. They do not have the respect to respect their surrounding.

im a 21 years old downhill rider, and yes, i can assure you that rollerblades and scooters are both ultra gay. stop using your sisters jeans and be a man!

Can you a-s-s-u-r-e? Thanks God for this illuminated boy showing us that blading and vert are for gay only. We are just blind, but luckily he is the Main Man.

HAHA rollerblades??? HAHAHAH when you get balls try downhill mountain bike and you will understand, for now keep playing with barbies, trying your little sister cloths and rollerskating!

I'm not going to lie.. I've done Downhill mountain biking for a couple of years with couple of my mates.. its not the best buzz.. go all the way down a hill hit a couple of jumps and berms the walk all the way up the fucking hill again to do the same shit. Skating.. I just pop some headphones in flow around the park and have a session, don't be coming here talking shit when you're on a "Aggressive Skating" video.

People usually learn to make usable, sensible arguments around the age of 13. Well I guess it comes up to your surroundings, but 8 years behind? That's more than a third of your age dude.. Weak!

you must be mistaking, people usually ride rollerblades and scooters at the age of 13… after that age they realise how gay it is

We aren't getting further than this with you, are we? Did you forget to wear your fruit hat once, or did your brother turn out gay or something? You really seem to have a personal problem with homosexuality there.

Words can no describe how ignorant you sound. I do not understand why you are even commenting on this video. The more comments this video gets the more traffic it gets. I'm not going to call you gay, because that would be to offensive to gay people, and I don't think that gay should be used as an insult. But please don't disrespect what I enjoy doing and I won't disrespect you. Thank you.

I really don't like knocking what other people do for fun, because the main thing is that your outside and off your ass, but ive watched your videos, you just ride down a fucking hill, theres far less creativity involved, you're decked out in every form of padding imaginable, and often theres snow in your videos which reduces road rash, we play on concrete, and we throw flips down stair sets, don't get me wrong, I enjoy mt biking tho I am quite new to it, but frankly, I think you are a pussy

awesome!! thanks for checking out my videos 😀 did you subscribe too?? more videos coming 😉
