Be careful with those bowls. They are HIGHLY addictive!

haha I jumped into my first bowl yesterday morning.....it is really fun but soooo difficult. Was just trying to learn how to maintain speed mainly. However I think my freestyle frames with 56/88a wheels were not helping lol

Will be moving house soon and my local will be the one I went to yesterday with the big bowl. Looking forward to hitting up those early sessions and learning!

Bowl skating really is a completely different animal. I actually maintain 4 different pairs of skates.

Setup #1: My bowl burners: Razor boot/4x58mm 89d/Featherlite2
Setup #2: My box grinders: Razor boot/2x56mm 90d/Kizer ultralights (with the huge h-blocks and antirockers)
Setup #3: My rink setup: Razor boot/4x90mm/Kizer powerblade frame
Setup #4: My trail blazers: Razor boot/4x90mm/rollerblade aluminum frame

Setup #1 see's daily work, I can pull off minimal grinds (mizzous, souls etc..)
Setup #2 see's work only when I pull my box out of the garage
Setup #3 see's work rarely when I take my daughter to the rink
Setup #4 see's quite a bit of time, neighborhood roll, trail skate etc....

Different tools for different jobs!

While I can flow around the bowls in all, the 2 wheel setup doesn't have the steering control that the 4 wheels allow (or the speed), also, the powerblades and the trail skates tend to dive when going up transitions and have no h-block for stalls. I need to get some freestyle frames and start hitting up some street tho....
