What Is Aggressive Skating?
Tags: skating, aggressive skating, inline skating, skateboarding, stunts
Below is a general overview of information relating to aggressive skating:
| ||Aggressive skating is a stunt-based form of inline skating.|
| ||Aggressive inline skating is performed on aggressive skates, as opposed to fitness or racing skates.|
| ||Originally starting on half pipes and spines and moving on to city streets, aggressive skaters attempt tricks such as sliding ("grinding") on the edge of concrete ledges or handrails, jumping, spinning and flipping over stairs or other gaps.|
| ||The term aggressive skating is a name only used outside the industry to describe the specific style of inline skating, but not a term most within the sport enjoy hearing or using.|
| ||Instead, those who practice the sport simply refer to it as "rolling" or "skating".|
| ||It should be noted that using any variation of term "rollerblade" is, technically, trademark dilution.|
| ||In the past, most people inside and out of aggressive skating would have defined it as a sport.|
| ||But currently the more popular view is that it is a cross between a sport, an art form, and lifestyle.|
| ||Proponents of skateboarding tend to look down on aggressive inline skating.|
| ||The reasons for this vary. It's not uncommon for hostilities to break out between skateboarders and inline skaters that come in direct contact.|
| ||But it's equally as common to find the two interacting with no problems, to find people who cross over from one to the other, and to see groups of skaters containing both variations.|
