How to choose inline skates – for beginners From these four skates, in my opinion, there’s
only one that’s not suitable for beginners. Look at the orange one. It has a really long frame. That’s good for speed but requires skill to
control. Therefore I do not recommend this one. The one with green laces has the smallest
wheels and the shortest frame. That’s really good for beginners … advanced
skaters too for that matter … but keep in mind a few things. It’s got a hard boot and stiff frame, and
that’s great for technical stuff .. but maybe a bit overkill for a beginner? And the hard boot increases the chance of
blisters, sweaty feet … you know .. those kind of things … so it’s not necessarily
the best choice. The yellow skate with three wheels, also called
triskate, is fine. However they usually come with either 100mm
wheels, 110mm or 125. I recommend 100mm as that puts you lower to the ground and is easier to control. The gray skate has 84mm wheels and that’s
also a good choice, perhaps even better. Now I wouldn’t obsess too much about these
differences. 80mm, 84 or triskates with 100mm – all are
just fine. You may even buy hockey skates or freestyle
skates with rockered wheels. …don’t worry, it’s okay… What really IS IMPORTANT though … is the
fit. Lots of people buy skates that don’t fit their
feet very well and they end up with blisters and pain. So if anything … just choose the skate that
fits your foot the best. Before buying a pair of skates, just go the
local shop, try on several skates, take your time and pick the ones that fits just perfect. I prefer using socks that are not too thin
and not too thick. Just normal socks. Put on the skate. Make sure the heel is all the way back. Tie the laces. And buckle up. Your toes shall not push hard against the
front of the skates, nor shall there be much free space in front. You know … it’s like trying on shoes. But just as important. Make sure there are no pressure points. And especially no point where the skate will
rub against your foot. If this happens you may have to throw away
your skates pretty soon .. so please … make sure you pick the best fit for your foot. PRICE & QUALITY Good news! Cheap skates may be good enough for you. Expensive skates may actually roll so fast
that a beginner cannot control speed. What I mean is, when you first learn to skate
you’ll soon be able to accelerate to high speeds. But controlling those speeds is not easy. … Therefore cheap skates will actually be safer
because they are slower. And don’t worry; even with the cheapest skates
you’ll anyway be faster than if you were wearing shoes. On the other hand, cheap skates are not very
durable. So if you expect to skate a lot, maybe better
invest in a bit more expensive skates that will last longer. And also on cheap skates the frames and boots
are softer, which reduces power transfer etc As a beginner you may not notice that but
soon you’ll reach a level where you’d benefit from higher quality. So… to summarize … yes, you can buy cheap
skates … no problem … but if you can afford it, consider going a bit up in price. Then your skates will last longer and they’ll
be fine even for more advanced stuff – which I’m sure you’ll soon be able to do. … I hope this guide was helpful and for more
beginner tutorials please check out the playlist in the description below. As always, thanks for watching and stay tuned

    My inline skates fit me perfectly. I ice skated in it with ice blades for 6-7 hours and my feet are perfectly fine. No blisters or soreness whatsoever. My skates arent even that expensive (180 myr). But i would still like to buy a triskate someday

    hi, i really love your videos. You are such a terrific skater. Thank you so much for always giving so much useful feedback and advice to all of us. I have a question please. So I am currently in the market for new inline skates. I'd like something in the urban/freestyle category which would allow me good maneuverability and speed. The one thing is that my forefoot is on the wider side. So skates that taper would probably hurt. I was looking at Seba, Powerslide, and Rollerblade. From rollerblade, the twister x 2017 model look pretty nice. from powerslide, the kaze and ultron looked good. seba tho has sooo many different models it is hard to choose. Maybe the seba high light. What do you think about all those models? Also it sucks that there are no stores in the NYC area that carry any of these. So i can't really try any on. I have to basically just order and return, order and return over the internet. thanks again!

    Wanting to get into skating but not sure what to buy. I was looking at the seba fr lineup and doop skates. Would getting a pair of new fR1's be too much as a beginner?

    Hello, I've just got into skating and have some £45 skates. But In my local area the ground doesn't seem to be the best, I only have a small area with a nice ground. I've been looking at the skates with 3 wheels that are bigger and (I think) better for pavements with a few more cracks etc. Do you think this a good idea when I'm ready to upgrade? I'd like to be able to travel further, see mor, find some nice circuits

    I'm just about to pull the trigger for a twister 80. Just doing a bit more research, what can you say about that one (in case you are familiar with this model).
    I'm getting the older version since it's about $100 cheaper

    What would you recommend to me? I am an experienced skater, and I wanna have fast skates. But in my country the roads are bad so something that can go fast through those terrains. Also I skate every day so put that in mind
