Some spell it rollerblades others would write roller blades, but it’s the same thing. If you’re wondering what rollerblades are, they’re basically the first ever inline skate, but despite all of this there are some marked differences.
Rollerblades have been around for a number of years, and they’re still incredibly popular.
All you’ve got to do is head down to some of California’s most popular beaches like Venice Beach or Huntington Beach to see how popular street rollerblading really is. Yes, it’s totally real. Perhaps you’ve seen it in the movies, but it’s not uncommon to see bronzed toned bodies skating down the palm-lined promenades in nothing but their swimwear. Outdoor rollerblading, or street rollerblading, is more popular than you think, but it’s not just for the beach babes, anyone can do it. In fact if you’re looking for a fun way to lose weight and tone up, street rollerblading is the ideal sport.
Rollerblades are perfect if you prefer recreational skating. But if you’re a roller hockey player, you most probably wear rollerblades as well. When you zoom up and down the seafront, navigate the circular outdoor bumpy park paths, or go hard on the roller hockey rink, you need a decent pair of rollerblades.
Unlike other skates, rollerblades have a high top boot and offer you the necessary ankle support that’s needed when skating outdoors on concrete, playing an aggressive game of roller hockey, or just generally skating indoors. But if you’re not a roller hockey player and you prefer to skate indoors, you might want to also try using freestyle skates since they have a tighter turning circle.
However, unless you’re a seasoned skater or a freestyle skater, you’re most probably better off with a pair of quality rollerblades. They’re so much more comfortable than other types of skates; it’s fair to say they’re definitely more versatile, meaning you can use them to skate almost anywhere comfortably, because at the end of the day if you’re a recreational rollerblader, comfort is key, and this together with safety are just as important when playing roller hockey.
Another added benefit of rollerblades is your turning ability. When you move from a pair of standard quads to a pair of rollerblades, you’ll instantly notice the difference. You’ll finally be able to turn those tricky or tight corners with ease. The turning ability together with the high boot style of rollerblades will offer you more flexibility and support than other aggressive inline skates, which makes these the perfect skates if you’re just starting out in the speed skating circuit.
Despite what you might think, there are a number of different types of rollerblades to choose from. There are recreational rollerblades, fitness rollerblades, roller hockey rollerblades, racing rollerblades, and street rollerblades, and we have them all!
