*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***

This announcement is to let everyone know that after hosting the SkateLog Forum and its predecessors for nearly 20 years, I have decided it is time to permanently turn the forum over to a new owner and administrator. I cannot think of anyone more suitable to take on that role than my SkateLog forum co-host, Florida skater Jessica Wright. I am pleased to announce that Jessica has agreed to establish and host a brand new skating forum, configured like the SkateLog Forum, but with a new name and a new Web Site. This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

NEW FORUM NAME: SkateDebate Forum
NEW WEB SITE: SkateDebate.com

Speed Skating Forum Most of the discussions in this forum will be about inline speed skating but discussions about ice speed skating and quad roller speed skating are also welcome.

Default Turning in Inlines

Ok, let me ask a dumb question.

How in the sam hell do I turn in these things?

I'm a quad speed coach and am pretty proficient on quads. Decided to try to start picking up inline speed because I'd like to coach that as well.

Anyways, got on them and I can cross over ok. Need a little work because the skates are so long, but no biggie. I can get around ok. Need a little more ankle strength. All of that will come with time.

But, can you turn on these things without lifting your feet up? Can I turn on the edges like regular roller blades just by leaning?

An experienced inline speed guy was at practice last night and he said that you can't turn like that. You have to pick em up. I've watched all kinds of videos on youtube about turning in inlines but they weren't speed inlines.
