How to Rollerblade Fast

Learn how to rollerblade fast from former World Champion speed skater Gypsy Lucas in this Howcast video.


Hey guys, Gypsy from the skate track NYC, we're gonna talk about how to roller blade fast. So the first thing when you wanna go fast is always remember wear your power boxes. Your power boxes ride underneath your hips straight down, so as you push, you wanna push straight out to the side, make a foot circle and come back inside that power box. Arm swing is nice and easy, right in front, and right back. You don't need to pull 'em way up high or way out in front, they should always enhance your skating, never hinder your skating. When you push out to the side, remember you wanna exaggerate straight out, that way you get a better push using all of your wheels for longer.

So this is how the stride looks when you're going fast.
