Greetings,

Looks like you have it figured out.

I'm not sure if you plan on jumping but if so keep an eye out for Coyote Rollerblades. Your set up is great for speed but the Coyotes are a bit safer for jumping.

Skates I use


Hi,

I bought the skates used. They are looking professional manufactured with 12'' scooter wheels (like doomwheels) and ski binding (no savety binding). The frame is welded out of aluminium hoses. But there is no name of a manufacturer on the skates.
As I go for skiing also in winter (with and without kite) the skates are much easier to use as a ATB, which I tried before (with less success).

greetings

Peter

I am with you Peter,

I have taught myself how to ride a mountian board now but the kite and Blades felt natural to me. I am having the time of my life running comfortable in the mid 30 kph range and jumping 10 + feet high. Faster and higher with more style is very possible. :wee:

Have you tried a spin yet Phree ?

Can you talk me through it please ? Particularily spotting your landing and slowing the rotation.

I'm good with the lead with your head and shoulders bit. On skis I would slow a spin opening my arms. On the ATB I guess you open up ? When you say stay tucked can I take it that open up to slow down follows ?

YES space. Nice stuff. We get it when we travel :ticking:

tucked tight , kness to high closer to chest . knees together

stay balled up , when parts start flailing about it kills the speed in the rotation.

all the same on the board.
