You're Going To Want To Try These Freeline Skates


"Hold my beer..." 

Those could be the final words of many ill-advised thrill seekers upon seeing their first set of freeline skates.

Recently captured on the streets of Taipei by skill-obsessed Kuma Films, the freeline skate has been around since 2003. The invention of (according to Wikipedia) San Francisco-based Ryan Farrelly, the freeline skate sits somewhere between an in-line skate and a skateboard.

Consisting of two sole-sized skateboard decks, each board has two sets of wheels. By shifting their weight in a snake-like fashion, the rider can generate forward momentum by constantly changing their point of balance - or, in the case of the guys (wizards?) in the video below, defy all normal means of momentum and hop between boards at will.

Best try these out with full padding, no audience and not an ounce of alcohol inside you.
