How to Freestyle on Rollerblades

Learn how to freestyle on rollerblades from former World Champion speed skater Gypsy Lucas in this Howcast video.


Hey, guys. We're going to talk a little bit about freestyle inline skating. Freestyle inline skating is a new thing that's hitting the streets, and all over the world, there's all kinds of competitions, so, it's all about using your slalom cones, but smaller and closer together, and doing all kinds of freestyle activities around the cones. In order to do freestyle skating, you need to be really balanced on your skates, and also be able to stand on your heels and your toes. Your heels there. Your toes there. So, it's all about getting that balance with your knees bent, your core engaged, and then using those skills going around the cones.

So, here's a little bit of a basic move to use around the cones, and then you can always move from there to advanced skills.

Work on going around the cones either way, and then you can go grapevine through them. With freestyle skating, you have to look down a little bit until you're used to where the cones are, so make sure that you keep your chest up, your knees bent, and you'll be good at going. So, a lot of work off the cones before you actually head down the slalom. Enjoy your freestyle skating.
