Really!!! bloody hell. Do you get any hassle from drivers when skating on the road (as in people telling you to get off the road etc)[/quote] Usually people just honk at you, but since we move faster then traffic most of the time (other wise we'll be skitching) we aren't really bothered very much.

oops... :oops: Sliding on the side of the boot is probably the best way to go, I have aggressive blades and when I bow my leg all the way out, I can stand on the side of my feet. I can slide quite a distance like this. You can also rise your leading foot and slide only on your back foot for extra st...
