|CheeseForSteeze||I played indoor inline hockey as a kid since there was no ice-hockey arena in my small town. Sometimes I would take my hockey skates to the park and try to ride some of the features but it was kind of boring, TBH. After losing my interest in hockey never really had the urge to do any inline skating. I think that's about when I finally got my first skateboard like all my other friends.|

i broke my hand bailing off a handrail at oakland university. once you get decent enough it is just like controlling your bails on a snowboard, you learn *how* to fall properly and roll to distribute the impact. but the 1 time in 100 that you eat it hard, concrete hurts...
spent half the night digging through boxes of my old shit in the basement but no pics pre-college. they must be stashed in the basement at my parents' house or something. Now that this thread drudged up my fruit-boot history, I kinda want to find a pic or two to post

I inlined skated 2 years ago for a whole summer...picked it up pretty quick and learned quite a few tricks but the skates hurt my feet a lot so after that I haven't done it again...(crappy/not-really-fitting skates made my feet bleed after every day ):
I even tried a few rails however - was hella scary though and bailing looked super silly and really hurt like a bitch.

|Megatron X||I inlined when I was younger. Picked it up again when I was Texas for three years out of boredom. Lol. Don't really do it anymore unless I have to watch my brother at the skatepark. That happens very rarely now.|

ilikecoupons - to do a rail the most basic thing to do was to land with the rail between your 2nd and 3rd wheels (in the middle) and skid on the plastic of the wheel frame.

Used to be a fruitbooter in the early 90's also, actually went to Woodward a couple times. Also skateboarded a bit, but I was nowhere near the point of doing handrails, etc that I could do on skates. Used to skate the local park with Alex Broskow a bit, but his parents made him quit our lacrosse team because it was too dangerous apparently, haha.

|BoardWalk||Can it even be called rollerblading if you don't have a fanny pack and bandanna?|
