Choosing the right Aggressive Skates

If you are planning to start with skating and you feel aggressive skating is right for you, here are a few excellent skates to get you started, and a few tips to help you make a good choice.

First of all, you should decide what you want to use the skates for, whether it’s primarily freestyle street skating, grinding or ramp skating.

If you are a complete rookie, choose a pair of skates that allows you to change the wheels and bearings easily so you can switch out larger and smaller and harder or softer wheels as you start to skate on different surfaces and try different techniques and tricks.
