Here is an FAQ from a rollergirl. http://www.rollergirl.ca/media/pdf/a...kating-101.pdf

I started skating ramps about six months ago after getting back into roller derby. I love it and I also believe that it really improved my derby skating. I am more agile than before. To start, I just used my regular outdoor set up. I had an old set of Riedell Outlaws that I learned derby in and some outdoor wheels. I purchased a pair of skates recently solely dedicated to ramp skating. I am much faster and go much higher now, but that would have been really scary to start with. So whatever you are using for outdoors should be good for now. Have fun!
