i don't know if i'm understanding the double pump part, but when i skated more the rinks i went to localy did it with all 8 wheels rolling on the straits. it was like one foot rolls in front of the other on one beat (actually the two beat), then side by side the next beat, then the other foot in front, and so on. if the beat was slow enough (something like "trans europe express") some of the better skaters could cross twice with each foot and skip the side by side part. going back recently that's still how it's done, or lift the back foot all the way up but still almost mimmick the 8 wheels down motion.

while i was typing that i remembered that you may not be going just to shuffle, so depending on your skates that could be harder to do (like if your trucks are fairly tight and/or you had your skates laced tight on your feet). say if someone were doing that lag deal, but you can see their ankle is almost hanging out of the skate, so they've still got all 8 wheels down, but i guess their back wheels would be off the ground if they had them laced on tight. or for me i kept my trucks loose, so moving my feet back and forth and keeping the wheels down was easy to do without lifting them.

I showed a skatelog member the dble pump last night, maybe she will chime in ? but in my definition of it

the wheels ( only two of them ) on the bring back foot and u pump skate to behind the leading knee in a str8 line
best way to replicate this would be to stand up on your right foot, bring your left foot behind your right foot bend your knee and try to ram your left knee behind your right knee,, notice to do this your toes want to point downward ? that's why i said its impossible to do this on 4 wheels because to make it look like your doing something exotic (so to speak) there is no physical way to keep all 4 wheels flat while maintaining a bent knee

I am very good friends with the owner & Thats my Sat. Night spot.

That film was suppose to be done before X-mas, but he had to fly to Fla. to interview a few more people , So its still in the Editing Process.

The filming was boring cause it was a closed session & not crowded enough for me.......lol

But he did get over 2 hours of real good skating footage.

Hey Skyborn Old Schooler,

Skate cam rocks!

I was watching some of your DJ's other videos on YouTube. There is one where he interviews a couple of guys skating at the Skatin Place and asks them where they're from. They were both from Columbus and said they skated at my local rink!

Those shots from their session look pretty much the same as our adult night on Thursday, as far as the same skating styles. This session is every Thursday from 9:00-12:00 and it is usually jam packed and wall-to-wall!

Skate Zone 71 in Columbus also has a once-a-month late adult skate- first Saturday of every month from midnight to 4:00 am.

Hi, Fireproof!

Maybe if I'm lucky I'll catch you there sometime. For the time being, other hobbies are cutting into my skating time. Now through March, most Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays (most, but not all) I'm umpiring fastpitch softball at a couple of different indoor facilities in Columbus and Dublin.

The umpiring gigs were too good to pass up- doing something fun that you love AND getting paid for it! If I could just figure out some way to get paid for SKATING, I'd have it made!

Hey A-Town thanks for the Rannaillis, like Goldilocks porrage, they are JUST right!

Hard to relearn ??? Shucks, I've taken hiatuses for years and years, and haven't forgotten a bit of my shuffle - and now I'm haulin' an extra 70 lbs around the floor. Every element of my footwork, forwards and backwards, is still workin' like a well-oiled machine..... I still frequently get compliments on my tearin' up those funky rhythms....

You're a lucky dude there Raptorman....I'm running like a real rusted machine, but I won't give up. My orthopedic surgeon went ballistic when he saw pictures of what I've been doing!

I am glad someone mentioned staying on beat...

I learned to (I am giving away my age) Naughty By Nature's "Wickedest Man Alive" good slow beat to get used to...

Cool

I'm not all that great, but when I want to learn a new move I watch someone closely and put her moves to a count, much as a dance teacher would (ex: ONEtwothree ONEtwothree). I soon realized that one of the teen girls' most mystifying moves involved a simple 1-2-3 count, and that helped me to (kindasorta) learn it.

I also break down the teen jammers' crazy maniac routines into individual moves. I isolate one thing and practice that. Now if only I could put all the moves together at lightning speed like they do, but alas, I would fall.

Other thing to shuffling is, keep your knees bent. The bouncing of your knee in time to the music is part of shuffling. I use my arms, too. And other parts.

This is in my thread SRB 2009, this is Chris, I've skated at his home rink, Sparkles in Kennesaw, GA. Hes really good. This is his shuffle skate routine.
