Roller skating is an amazing hobby that has incredible benefits. To add to the fun, learn cool roller skating tricks! The following tricks are easy to learn and will definitely impress your friends at the rink:
Skating on Heels
For this awesome roller skating trick, you’ll want to perfect your balance first. Practice balancing on your heels. When you feel confident that you won’t fall, take strides to gain momentum. Then, continue skating in small circular motions to keep your momentum going.
Jumping in Skates
With some practice, you will be able to WOW your friends at Rainbow Roller Rink when you jump in your skates. First, take several powerful glides. When you’re ready, bend your knees and keep your feet close together. The next step is to jump straight up into the air. When you feel yourself returning to the ground, bend your knees again to help with the landing.
Moonwalking in Skates
Moonwalking in roller skates is one of the easiest roller skate tricks to learn (thanks to the toe stop). When you’re in your quad skates, apply one of your toe stops to the ground. With the other foot, push off the ground to propel yourself backward. Then, apply your toe stop on the roller skate that just went backward. Repeat these steps until you’re moonwalking. (Who knows – maybe with practice you’ll be as good as Michael Jackson!)
Practice makes perfect, and we know you want to practice these cool roller skating tricks. So, head to Rainbow Roller Rink for hours of endless fun with friends! We hope to see you soon.
