I really like this one. Covers the basics and then builds to more advanced moves. PHIL

Inside Edge is crammed with everything you need to become an expert inline skate, whether you are a total beginner or a budding rail grinder. Learn the from the beginning ready position, stride 1,2 and 3, A frame turns, heel brake stop, and safe stopping, to parallel turns. Then go intermediate with parallel turns, mohawks, spin stops, forward crossovers, backwards skating and hills. Now go for the hockey start, 180 jump, backwards crossover, sidesurf, backwards powerslide stop, and grinding, plus the attitude that goes with tricks. Shot in Venice Beach California. Extremely well done video thatís fun to watch. Order from: SurfVideo
