Aggressive Inline Skating
Aggressive inline skating sports is a form of inline skating which is usually held on urban obstacles, skateparks and on half pipes. The street skating is usually performed on ledges and rails and also jumping tall heights called as 'gaps.'
The inline skating in parks is usually done on various obstacles in which the skaters add bowls and ramps on which they perform vertical skating in an impressive manner.
The aggressive inline skates are also designed tougher and stronger than the normal inline skates. It is only due to the reason that the stress is placed on the skate by the skater who is performing various skating tricks.
