I hate how people are always like, 'its the gayest thing ever' and all that. i see nothing wrong in kids doing it because they like it more than skateboarding. i'd really hate it if kids who inlined started skateboarding, even if they didn't like it as much, just to not be ragged on. it may look kinda gay w/ all those jumpy grinds n shiz...
But when i do it, i just pretend i'm on skis. it helps a ton to get spins w/ grabs down for skiing, you can grind like you would on skis which is what i always do so that keeps my grinding skills up over the summer, you can get 5's down in the pipe to help w/ skiing, or go off a ramp into somethin soft to get confidence for certain tricks you wanna do on skis. If the kids like the sport, then respect the fact they even do it even though they get tooled on by everyone. it helps for skiing a ton if you do it as if you were skiing and gets you off ur ass in the summer and it's good excercise too. So stop tooling on the inline skaters please. thanks. have a good one.
