EXTREME

Extreme Skating, also known as Aggressive/Aggro Skating is a sport in which you must be fearless to accomplish amazing stunts and tricks. Aggressive skating also includes Street Skating which encompasses pulling off grind tricks on street curbs, hand rails, or airing off ramps. Vert Skating on the other hand is skating on 6 to 10 feet high U shaped ramps (Half-pipes/Vert Ramps) and feeling the rush of big airs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Agressive inline a dangerous sport?
Not really. You take as much risk as you choose to take. It's only dangerous if you push yourself to the point of that's-just-silly.

Does it hurt when you fall?
Yes.

Even with protective gear?
Can you get hurt when you're wearing a seatbelt?

Ok, so why do you do it if it's so painful?
We don't do it for the pain, trust me. We do it coz it's so amazing to land a trick that looks impossible. It's incredible feeling to do something new that you never thought you were capable of before. Aggressive inliners are dumb optimists. We believe we're on the verge of of landing a trick everytime we try it. We don't actually think we'll fall. If we did, why would we try?

How do you jump a trick?
First, you do it with your heart, by wanting to jump. Then, you do it with your mind by zoning out all the fear you might have in you. You do this by focusing on how it will look when you land the trick, not the obstacles in your path. Then, you jump with your body. If you do land the trick, it's an expression of your soul.

Should girls skate?
Definitely. You see, it's an individual sport and though there are competitions, it's not all about winning. You win when you win against your impatience, your mistakes, your fear and self-doubt. Women and men both struggle with this.

How do I sign up and how much does it cost?
It'll cost you a pair of skates. Email audrey.lek@gmail.com and we'll see what we can do to help you out.
