In my past I have been known to play a little roller hockey. Core77 reports on these Freeline Skates which look to reproduce the sensation of snowboard carving on concrete. Given that a sideways profile about halves your wind resistance, I reckon these puppies could get some serious speed on.
Helmet and wrist guards are advised…

Dude check out a review and pics of the new freeline skates at http://freeliners.blogspot.com
I got a pair for christmas… man, they’re intense. It’s a lot like snowboarding, and you really can pick up speed. I’m still learning for sure, but they’re a blast. Definately recomended.
I’d definately agree with the helmet/wirstguard reccomendation. Or at least some biking gloves or something similar so you don’t shred up your hands in a fall.
I love mine so much, superb nifty bits of madness, carving, riding uphill, bombing downhill make these the best gadget out there at the moment.
Freeline skates rocks! What a great way to have fun and challenge yourself at the same time. And they are the most compact form of transportation!

Freeline Skates Rock!!!! There really is nothing out there that compares to it. Get a pair and start carving. Oh and don’ forget the protective stuff. They may be handy in the beginning stages. They’re a challenge no doubt but they are definetaly worth it.
