Starting Inline = Messed Skiing?
I'm just wondering, if I, or anyone on NS were to start inline AFTER skiing, would it screw up your style/spins/general way you do things on snow?
It's been puzzling me because the two sports are so similar, yet different.
does not messs up aything, iprves rail game and leg strenghth
i think it can just help you with your balance on rails, landings and can sometimes improve style
Im planning on starting it this summer and i dont see a way it could really mess with your skiing. I think its obviously gotta help with balance on rails, also in landing on skates i feel your balance ill have to be better than when skiing, much smaller platform to land on so your weight will have to be better centered. Im excited to pick it up.
helps so much with landing switch and gives you better balance in general, and gives you creativity for making your own grabs
holy shit. twenty thousand posts. never thought i'd see it. great work dude.
i dont think it would hurt at all
it would only improve you
it helps some for sure
with spins i think skiing helps skating more than vice versa.
first day every season skiingor skating is a little strange,
but after that no differentthan the norm.
im thinking of doing it this summer. i had the same thought, but more about injury's. im sure it will effect your skiing in a positive way for sure. i did it once last year, was pretty easy and defenatly something cool to pick up on, the weird thing is obviously not being able to lean forward and back.
It doesn't mess you up at all, it makes you better. If your looking into buying some skates get a pair of Razors (it has nothing to do with the scooter company).
shits soo fun, but i always get shit from real bladers cause I dont do all those ghey grinds and blade like a skier
really help me with the rails, didn't mess my skiing except that now i enjoy shorter skis.
i feel that, after a while, it helps you develop some creativity. I used to roll a lot but stopped my senior year of high school. When I was at my peak of rolling one of the big things in rolling was "improv." Basically it's just like finding something cool to jib on skis, but with skates. One good example is if you were to find a banked planter box you ride the tranny up then do a little handplant on the lip. Ideally there would be a wall or pole to bonk or roll along. anyway, the point is that you develop an eye for jibbing/skating things differently.
It does help with rails a lot too, though it's a weird feeling the first time to grind with skis and realize you are locked on to anything. one of the major differences between rolling and skiing is the size of everything. It's hard to find anything outside a skatepark where you can throw big spins.
so i saw someone suggest razors, I was considering starting inline this summer too. Is there any good inline skates that would be good for a beginner but not cheap crap? any advice on a good beginner skate would be sick. thanks
it is pretty hard getting used to skates after skiing. I was skating right after I skiied the same day and I tried to gap over a hip and landed deep and immediately slipped out to my tailbone. It is pretty hard to remember you don't have tips or tails to save your backseat landings anymore.
It is way fun and a great cross training for rails, landings, spinning and other cool stuff. Don't let the haters get you down and they will hate
how cares its fun tov do both
it helps you do rails on skis a ton
I ski and rollerblade. The two sports help improve skill for one another, but I've found that if I go from one to another it kinda messes me up. Like if I go rollerblade in the middle of a ski season, I'll feel really wierd the next time I ski.
has anyone skated anything from the razor genesys line? i just tried a pair on and they felt great, but $200. i wanted to research before doing that
i havent skated in quite a few years so im kind of in the intermediate area. any tips?
only bad thing is you can butter out a 450 or 630 but its so worth it
its help me major
i remember when u were at 10,000
