Talking First Timer

Tried out quads for the first time today. They felt super stable, and it was so easy to dance on them, almost like I wasn't on skates. (Maybe it's because the rental skates were set up to mostly go straight... I had a hard time edging them)?

Backwards was pretty easy too, but I couldn't do anything like mohawks or 3-turns.

Default Nice!

Rentals often have poorly aligned plates and have super tight trucks/hard cushions making it hard to turn.

I can't see the pics but if rentals were easy for you, imagine how great your own quads will be .

Default T's A Growing Process

Hi Quad Guy,

PreNote: It has always amazed me by how fast some teens can learn quads, even when set up wrong, and do amazing stuff. Not all can yet during my Roller Skating Session career I see it over and over again sometimes remembering the names of Great Young Skaters. Davy was one. He skated backwards into me at Salem, NH and blew the air out of both our lungs. Joshua saw it coming yet could not get their in time. 50 something at the time. Davy could adjust his skate trucks while skating on one foot.

A)Edging them as a Beginner: Means you need tight trucks/cushions
Edging them later: Means You just do it.

- T's all about ankle control, foot, and other stuff.
- You just got to be comfortable playing tricks.

B)Three Turns work better on Artistic Skates with a heel.
- It is all about how your body is on the floor like a dancer
- Now some can do it on flat heels, yet Very Very Few.

C)Mohawks tell us WHY NOT
-Now I might not reply yet I can do these on both type of Roller Skates
-To be Honest, I am now goofing around when I do Mohawks, and I do
the turns on my toes. This isn't quite proper yet I wanted toe work.

Yours in Skating, MA/NY Skating Dave

I see you have many many hours on wheels, I feel the same, I once ( a few years ago )put on inlines for a quick skate around the stores parking lot, yes, years playing hockey, but no ice for 40 years, only quads, I skated the inlines exactly like I was on ice or quads, it's a balance thing, some muscle memory and endorphins
