How long skating & slaloming: Also skated for about 6 years during the late 90s. Mainly for transport but with some tricks and a few grinds. Helped set up blading society at uni. Recently got back into it, discovered I hadn't forgotten anything major. Teaching running friends.
Picking up Freestyle slalom, for the sheer beauty of it.

Name: Shesk8
Location: Salt Lake City, Utah USA
Equipment for slalom: Seba iGor(after hubby convinced me)
Favorite slalom trick: got the backwards crosses down, working on crazy's and a few others. not quite ready to turn my self loose to mix up tricks yet.
Events: ha,ha,.... not planning on it, though got my first ever $ tip while skating this weekend.
How long skating and slaloming: the past 2 years, on/off between speed ice, speed roller, and just plain 'ole blading.
Other info: like to mix things up with the wheel slalom and using inline-ice blades during winter - they are very similar in their feel and hook right up to the igors.

Hi Shesk8. You sound like you like any and all types of skating. You probably board and ski out there too right (just as much fun).
I have a question about those blade that hook up to Sebas. Are they a hockey blade or a toothed blade? The reason I ask is because I was wondering if you can go up on your toes on hockey ice skates? I just don't know as I've never worn any hockey (ice) skates. Thanks.

Do you mean these? http://www.inlineiceblades.com/
If so, they aren't Seba specific, and will fit most 8mm axle freestyle frames. there is info about the variants on the site, and yes they do seem to do a figure blade.

As you can see from the pictures, they each have four alloy adapters that fit the frames as if they were wheels with bearings and spacers. The blade is clamped by these, though one hole and three slots. These slots allow for different frame lengths.

@Shesk8, I didn't think any of the variants will fit on the the Igor's rockered frame though, so would need a flat frame to take them. Did you find different? Or did you pick up Igors with the old flat frames?

Oicusk82huh - you do need a flat frame to mount them. we both have flat frames for our ice blades. they currently make a freestyle, aggressive, hockey and figure model(has picks). yes, you can get up on your toes, it's a little weird at first, then you adapt pretty easily. I used to try ice slalom with figure skates and found the darn pick and flatter radius to be cumbersome. had these on my older RB's a while ago, and have since mounted them to the igor.

Inline Ice Transformers

we carry the freestyle & aggressive models. I presumed most folks that do hockey or figure will opt to get dedicated skates for those sports.

Default Introduction

Name: Nicholas

Location: Helena, Montana!

Equipment: Seba High Light, just bough a pair of 2015's

Favorite Slalom Trick: Probably the Sun and Crazy variants because I get alot of good looks from passersby when Im practicing those moves...also its about the most difficult trick I can do right now.

Events: I am attending the WSS event Portland coming up in a couple of weeks!! I'm excited for the workshops. Hopefully I can get a good direction for my practice this summer.

How long skating and Slaloming:I bought a old pair of Chicago hockey skates from the GoodWill last June (11 months ago). That was really my first time on skates besides a couple times going to the skating rink in middle school. I have been skating pretty much every sunny day since then, and have made equipment upgrades. Winters around here are difficult.

Default Atlanta Georgia Inliner

Hi, My name is Rodney. I skate in Atlanta, Georgia. I mostly skate freestyle and occasionally do some slalom, I do the occasional jump, but basically just like skating around obstacles and getting a good workout. I skate in Piedmont Park, Beltway, Silver Comet Trail and various paved trails in North Atlanta. I mostly wear Seba Highs (2012 model), which I absolutely love. (once I got past break in period). I do some speed skating on Powerslide C8's, but mostly prefer just freestyling around.

Welcome, and good luck with your slalom.

It can be tough keeping motivated when skating on your own, but hopefully online videos and discussions will keep you enthused and help you to progress.

Hey, new member here

Name: Loya
Location: London
Equipment for slalom: Powerslide Imperial with 4 83A stock wheels and 4 85A Gyro wheels (banana rocker).
Favourite slalom trick: Well it was the Mabrouk up until I started really practising it around 80mm-spaced-apart cones yesterday. Suddenly all the feels and fun in it have scarpered, along with my fluidity! So now it has to be the backwards crisscross, as that one still feels good. I can't wait for more cool sensations as I learn how to do much more impressive-looking tricks, though...
Events?: One day, maybe...
How long skating & slaloming: I started skating about 13 months ago, but have only skated for 5 or 6 months within that time. Have been learning slalom for the past 3.
Other: I am the only skater in my area (but as slalom is so addictive, the loneliness is no deterrent) so I am learning using Naomi's awesome The Art of Falling and YouTube videos.
