Posted:The general idea is doing poi while your roller skating.

I have started skating in hyde park, with a few spitz regulars, we are all hooked now eek

I'm planning to "invest" in some skates of my own, any advice on what to look out for when buying in-lines will be very handy. I have been told the most important thing is the bearings that keep the wheels spinning smoothly.

Posted:K2's are generally good skates as are salomen and of course rollerblade, It all depends on what you want to use your skates for, aggressive skates have better balance but are small wheeled and bulky ideal on smooth carparks, other skates for recreation have bigger wheels so easier to skate on pavements. a good set of skates will normally cost about 125 upwards if you want them to be sturdy, safe and to last.

Posted:I think i might be the only person to say this sounds horrible.
I rollerblade too and.. well...

Blader doing a royale down a stair set while spinning flowers.
It would be ridiculous lol

Be good at one, the other or both.
Mix and match rarely works.
Sorry.. redface
