Default Super Smooth Tarmac alert, UK

I managed to find some super smooth tarmac in Bexhill, East Sussex, on top of the De La Warr pavilion. This seems to be a very rare thing these days.

To get to it you need to skate along a path coated with tiny stones that's horrible but some as you hit the tarmac, oh wow, super smooth bliss.


Here is a video of me on it, hopefully accessible!

Nice one Quadster, shame I missed you. I think that bit of tarmac needs to be listed or something, I don't know many others.

Looks like you are on Street snakes? Are those Bauer boots?

That photo is of a friend of mine; it's not me.

Yes, he's on Bauer Vapors and he rolls Sims Street Snakes.

I wear hardshell boots (Supreme Turbo) and mostly roll Aussie Scotts or Rollerbones DOTDs.

I've got supremes with Kryto Cruise's. The supremes were ruining my ankles though, I had to get a gel bandage thingy to be able to continue using them. Do you have that problem?

I would be interested to see those Aussies Scott's, they are a bit legendary.

If I'm down next year I will let you know and maybe see you around?

When you say "Supremes" do you mean Supreme Turbos or Bauer Supremes?

The Bauer Supremes are known to destroy people's feet because they're ice hockey skates and not intended for roller skating (especially not trick skating). A mate of mine took a year to break his Bauer Supremes in before they became even vaguely bearable to wear.

Personally, I can't be dealing with all that pain (especially not for a boot that doesn't even give you any kind of performance advantage whatsoever).

I use the plastic shell Supreme Turbos with padded liner. No ankle issues for me, but the rigid layer on the the liner's tongue and the piping that runs down the front opening of the liner, are a both total PITA. However, there's no other alternatives, so I just have to put up with it.
