The sport where you can show impossible tricks, increase your stamina, meet new people, and tell impressive stories about your injuries. Aggressive inline skating is not the most popular sport, but we can all agree that it looks amazing what you can do on a pair of inline skates. One of the most popular tricks is the 360, where you rotate 360 degrees while jumping in the air. Some more advanced people combine this trick with a grab or a backflip rotation.
It is easy to start with the sport. You only have to buy a pair of inline skates, which start at approximately 100 dollars for a beginner’s pair. And of course, you need a skatepark to practice your first tricks. In the beginning, you just need a few quarter pipes and some banks to get comfortable on a skatepark. When you become more and more advanced, you dream parks are one of the Woodward parks. First, focus on stability on the inline skates and try to jump in the air by using the quarter pipes and banks. When you feel comfortable by that, you can add tricks while jumping and you can challenge yourself by going to bigger skateparks. Don’t worry when you don’t have a skatepark nearby. Jumping from stairs on the streets can also be a lot of fun.
A lot of people have heard of the front- and backflip rotation. Those tricks are really impressive to see. The good news is that it is not even that hard to learn. When you train two days a week for a year, you probably will be able to start practicing the rotation. Of course, it depends how talented you are. It all starts with how confident you are on the inline skates and by using the right materials. Take it step by step and start working on the stability front- and backward. You will start working on the sideward rotation such as 180, 360, 540, etc. For sure that your friends and family already will be impressed!
Increase your stamina
You are constantly taking ‘sprints’ during inline skating. Think about that you drop-in, increase speed by skating, and jump to fly in the air. In this small distance, you accelerate as fast as you can. That also ensures an acceleration of the hearth rate. When your hearth rate is on a higher level, you will increase your stamina. So, if you are someone who like to have an alternative for jogging this can be the ideal sport. And most important, it is much more fun to do, right?
Meet new people
The sphere at a skatepark is really easing going. Everybody who is at the park does it because they enjoy doing it. In another words, all the people are in a good mood. It’s easy to meet new people. We all know this awkward silence in other situations, because you don’t know where to talk about. But at the skatepark, you all have the same interest and people are easy to talk to.
Stories about injuries
Some people have scares because they accidently hit a sharp object or because of a nail attack by the older sister. In inline skating, you can tell them much more interesting stories. For example, that you flew 6 foot in the air while doing a backwards 900. You tried to land on one skate, but failed to land correctly and that led to a big wound. You can easily get the attention of people on birthdays, parties and other meetings with these kinds of stories.
