i was in the same situation as you a while ago. i wanted something to do with
skiing during the summer!
definitely blading! i just got my first ones a few days ago and they're super sick!
they're so much fun but harder to pick up than i thought. they feel so heavy on your
feet but im getting better. after a few hours, i can 1 and 3 and sort of do rails. so
far i think its a lot like skiing (especially the rails and such).
the only downside (in my opinion) is that people think of you as a joke. you get so
many weird looks by people. they think you are retarded.
but at the same time i think thats ^ the best part. its different. theres such a small
community of bladers. which is cool in my opinion.
ya enough said.
