Learn to Ride
Freeline skates are ridden with the same technique as a skateboard or snowboard, except with independent feet. As you ride, you can carve smooth “S” turns while riding downhill and dance like a fish on the flats and uphill. Riders start by centering each foot on a skate and pushing off a wall or a gentle slope to get rolling. Next, the rider turns the heels of the feet in and out repeatedly, creating a core twist for momentum. With each turn and swing of your body, you’ll move with more traction and confidence.
It is recommended that beginners start learning with Freeline Cruiser. It has a lower deck height and smaller wheels for easy maneuvering. Training wheels can also be fitted to aid you in the early stages of learning.
