*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***

This announcement is to let everyone know that after hosting the SkateLog Forum and its predecessors for nearly 20 years, I have decided it is time to permanently turn the forum over to a new owner and administrator. I cannot think of anyone more suitable to take on that role than my SkateLog forum co-host, Florida skater Jessica Wright. I am pleased to announce that Jessica has agreed to establish and host a brand new skating forum, configured like the SkateLog Forum, but with a new name and a new Web Site. This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

NEW FORUM NAME: SkateDebate Forum
NEW WEB SITE: SkateDebate.com

The more upright style of shuffle skating seemed to become popular as the bigger (62 mm) wheels came into style in the 80's- the older style of skating just seemed like it was better suited to the smaller wheels.

I know that I used to run smaller wheels and my front trucks as loose as they'd go, and that would let your trail foot not just "double pump", but also go side-to-side while keeping the front wheels on the ground.

With the big speed wheels and tight trucks I use now, you just don't seem to be able to get the same action from the trailing foot. Or, maybe it's just because I'm 20 years older than I was back then...

Brett yes the trailing front two wheels but instead of just bringing them back you pump twice sort of like what a dj does when he is scratching (for lack of better description) ...The girls shuffled and the guys boogie bounced here but only 3 got the dble pump down pat ( in our rink) and i have seen two others since able to do it Andy @ zoomers and Marlon @ kettering ...being old school and watching others skate nowadays I cant get past the 'they skate like the girls did back in the day" thinking..lol BUT whatever! as long as people are skating does it matter ?....lol
