Hey! Sorry to resurrecting / hijacking this post, but I just loved the videos you've posted!

I'm trying to teach myself to dance too, after a while off skates, need to build those muscles up again

I'd like some advice on outdoor wheels, if anyone could chime in? I'm on 78A 65mm at the moment, which are lovely for zooming round the park, but for more intricate footwork such as that shown in these videos, could anyone suggest a wheel they like to use for outdoor roller dance? I'm skating on concrete, asphalt and outdoor tennis court surface. Not too many bumps, stones or twigs...

A few wheel suggestions would be ace!

Cheers guys, and sorry again for hijacking post.

Default Your Wheels sound OK

Hi Goldi,

The wheels sound OK, yet every manufacturer's wheels in the same durometer perform a bit different. So 78 is OK.

Now you might want to adjust your front action and pay attention to where the front axle hits the ball of your foot.

Not sure yet often the set up you have is made for only straight ahead skating on a very very stable platform. It is called the speed set up, and only designed for straight ahead. Changing the relationship of the axle and front action will give you some fancy foot work. And yes you have to work the back action as well..

Hope this helps.

Yours in Skating, MA/NY Skating Dave
