Re: Roces Equinox

None of those aforementioned were as blatant as this copy though. Other brands' 'copies' were differentiated, unlike this one.

Re: Parallel slide problems

To counter the scissoring, you simply go into the slide with the foot that will be leading a little further in front of your other skate. So if I want to slide turning right, I would start off by having my left foot slightly in front of my right. As for the jumping, you don't jump in a particular di...

Re: Parallel slide problems

I tried loads of different ways of learning this trick, and the one that worked best for me was an unorthodox one: I simply skated at a moderate pace (fast enough to slide and not go over the top yet slow enough to keep control) and I jumped into it. What you do is jump slightly, and turning your lo...

Re: It's out, it's out! New Seba Igor

I'm more than sure that there are skates cheaper that are way better, if there aren't then most of the skaters wasted their money in useless crap, and I don't believe that's the case, is it now?

Re: Rockered frame axel?

Rockered frame axel?

Does anyone know if such a thing exists? By rockered axel I mean an axel that has an offset shaft, making the wheel a little higher/lower.

Re: stopping at high speed

Wouldn't the magic slide be a tiny bit akward getting into at high speeds? I've allways thought the snow plough would be a lot safer and easier at higher speeds
