Rollerblading & Inline Skating
Did you know? That rollerblading and inline skating are actually the same sport. That's because inline skating is called rollerblading much like we say 'Hoovering' for vacuuming and 'make a Xerox' for doing a photocopy. Interesting stuff huh?
Inline skates have two to five polyurethane wheels (usually four), arranged in a single line, although five-wheel designs are no longer manufactured. The inline design allows for greater speed and maneuverability as opposed to four-on-the-floor roller skates. Inline wheels are coupled with boots designed for skating over and around various obstacles and jumping.
Months in the making, Napier’s new-look skate park is now open for roller sports of all kinds including skateboarding, bmx, roller derby, inline hockey and scootering. Basically, if it's got wheels and you can strap them on or ride it, you're in with a grin.
