Skating Tips that Will Improve Everything About Your Performance

Whether you’re a new skater or a seasoned veteran, our skate tips will enhance your experience of inline skating!

Every week, we post a skate tip by one of world's top coaches or skaters.

Many of the tips focus on skating technique — how to skate more efficiently and go faster.

But our tips cover any and all topics that we think will be helpful to skaters. Topics include: skate safety, cross-training, core conditioning, diet, dieting, skate maintenance ... and a lot more!

Among the great skaters who have contributed tips are world champions Joey Mantia, Julie Glass, Jorge Botero and Nicole Begg.

Our skating forum is another great place to find skate tips. There, you can ask fellow skaters for advice and share your knowledge with others.

But of course you'll find lots more on the Inline Planet. We keep you informed about what's happening in inline skating. We also post stories about the latest skates and skate products.

If you have some skating news you would like to share with us, feel free to post it on the forum or send us an email.
