Default Beach cruiser build



Here is a pic of my beach cruiser skates. They were a little tricky to get use to because most of the control is done with the front of your feet using a loose-fitting and squishy connection to the plates. So yeah, a little tricky. They handle more like regular skates once you get moving. To stop I use a modified T-stop, dragging only the front wheels on the back skate. In general, you have to skate at a much slower pace and with no sudden moves. Having a beer greatly improves things because you are more accepting of the dawdling tempo.

Wow ! I admire your go for it attitude, I have difficulty just walking in huaraches., I can`t imagine how difficult it must be to skate in them. Good luck with it.

Agree, i wear them (thongs) three sizes to large to be able to feel things before my toes are crushed into curbs and rocks, couldnt imagine skating barefoot, well, it wouldn't be skating, but the image factor would be off the charts, well when skating the strand in LA.

You’re right about the image factor, Ursle. I always get grins and compliments when I skate the boardwalk with these. So despite their limitations, I like to go a mile or so before changing into my regular wheels.
