Re: Skate shops in/near/close to Norwich?

Is that the old "draw around your feet and measure" trick?

Re: Dont think thay will catch on but stil cool..

Looks like you'd need to discover a set of "assisted skating parameters" - probably with at least three multi-axis accelerometers attached to a datalogger - one on each skate and another on a fairly stable area of the body - probably the head or waist? Although adding in electronic gyro's ...

Getting back into the swing of it

Hi all, I've lurked a bit as a guest but I thought I'd join up and make it "official" as it were :) I used to do a lot of skating back in the mid-late 90's, and I thought I'd start it up again, but my venerable old K2 Power Extremes decided against it and promptly fell to pieces.. (Plastic...
