Freestyle Slalom Inline Skating

Freestyle Slalom Inline Skating is a variety of inline skating which involves performing tricks around a straight line of equally spaced cones. Freestylers mostly use inline skates, though some use quad skates.

Cones are placed in a line, evenly spaced. The most common spacing used between the cones in competitions is 80 centimeters (31 inches), with larger competitions also featuring lines spaced at 50 centimeters (20 inches) and 120 centimeters (47 inches). The inline wheels can be configured in a rocker set-up, with one wheel larger than the others.

More casual freestyle skating can take place on the street. For competitions, in freestyle slalom skating each skater has two minutes to present a prepared performance, with music, to a panel of judges. The skaters are awarded points for technical difficulty and artistic merit.
