Hey guys, Gypsy from the Skate Truck NYC. We're going to talk about some cool rollerblading tricks.

So the first trick I have for you is just a heel toe skate around. So what you're going to do is knees bent, swizzle your legs apart, lift your front toe, then lift your heel. So as you're rolling one time, and then switch directions. So this is what it looks like when you're skating. So when you're using that trick, you can turn it into all kinds of things, from forwards to backwards, but make sure your balance is there first, keep your core engaged and tight, and always remember to keep your knees bent.

The next inline trick is called the shoot the duck. So you're going to put your toe down, squat down, and sit on that back skate, and then roll. So this is what it looks like. So when you're doing shoot the duck on your roller blades, it can be used in the park, outdoor skating, also when you're playing the limbo inside the local skating rink. So make sure you practice that one, keep your core tight, make sure your front wheel that you're sitting on is straight up and down, and not leaning to the side, in or out, because that will make you fall either way.

And those are a few skating tricks for rollerblading.
