    I use the small plastic cups from Ikea.

    Btw folks, this sport is called inline skating. Rollerblade is actually a brand that got so popular that many people use it instead and probably because it sounds more cool.

    You are right. I dun like my friends to use "r*llerblade", I always use "skating" or "inline skating" which I think sounds cooler than "r*llerblade" (sounds like ah beng).

    During my course, I met this instructor who have been teaching for years. He failed the test. He wasnt happy and told the testers that how can he fail if he has been teaching for years? well, the tester told him he has been teaching all the wrong things for all these years!

    Agreed that getting the proper stroke is important, but too many times the reason for why people were asked to take classes can have many factors like commercial innuendo (to make money), ...blah blah blah...etc. there are many world class skaters started skating by themselves and slowly progress to become good racers. So you cannot say everybody MUST take course, since every individual is different, some people learns better skating alone some learn better in group. I have 2 friends who are able to pick up the essence of skating in just 2 weekends! they are skating double-push honking powerful!!!
