Default 1st time at indoor skate park ...

took my son there, 1st time for both of us .. I didnt skate, my son ran some inlines, and tried using his rip-stick.

This skate park was awesome and I so should have skated!!

I'm going to get/build myself and my son some quad skates to run at this park, the park is indoor with concrete floor and tons and tons of wooden ramps.

My question is will I want to use softer outdoor wheels or some harder indoor wheels (like 95a/96a)? I would also asume indoor wheels with metal hubs would not be a good idea?

Is this park solid wood bowls, or are there sections of concrete / cement flat between ramps?

If mixed mediums, then I'd suggest a hard skateboard wheel if the concrete is really smooth; 85 to 90 hardness (durometer). If slightly rough, a slightly softer wheel.....say between 80 to 85 durometer. If ramps are all wood, then hard wheels for sure....between 90 to 100 durometer.

This is all subjective though, as I ran 75 duro wheels for many years before I decided to go harder. I used to do lots of outdoor street skating, so I needed softer wheels for daily commutes, outdoor hockey, and for recreational skating. Once I became almost solely a vert skater, the duro started creeping up and up.

Also, until recently, I had always used roller skate wheels. Hubbed wheels will get destroyed, and they really do not work well. Now, I swear by skateboard wheels. I'd suggest nothing bigger than 60mm in size. I also like skateboard wheels with no core. Solid wheels seem to work better for me.

Might you the next time, please take a photo or two. I am too curious if there is any such difference, then our lives in the older roller rinks.
