An extreme sport involving straping rollerblades on your feet and doing stunts on urban environment. rollerblading is very underground in The United States, only know about by rollerbladers skateboards and some bikers. rollerblading was in the lime light int the mid and late 90s, but skateboarding felt threatened by how cool it could be, and put out a plethora of negative advertising stripping rollerblading of its fame at a time when it was really starting to progress. and now everyone thinks rollerblading and the people who do it are "gay", when really they're some of the coolest people out there, and rollerblading is now on a higher level than skateboarding and biking combined.
i was rollerblading on a roof top when i jumped off and landed backwards after doing two and a half rotations.

.And Rollerblading in no way is harder or easier than skateboarding, beacause we can do such crazy things the standards of rollerblading is set very high.

A sport that gained a particular popularity during the mid-90's. It involves either soft- or hard- shelled boots mounted on top of rails attached to between three and five wheels each. There is often a level of malcontent associated with rollerblades in the minds of Average Joe, as the techniques required to become proficient take a fair amount of time and perseverance, all the while dwarfing the learner's superiority complex as he flails his arms and falls flat on his face time after time.
Many claim that rollerblading is a characteristically homosexual endeavor,though there is little evidence to support this unless redneck logic is employed. On the contrary, a skilled skater has proven to be more than averagely desirable to the opposite sex. The sport endures endless scrutiny due to the before mentioned difficulties in the early stages of practice. It is most heavily bombarded in skateboarding culture (the one populated by teenaged stoners, rather than skilled athletes,) where claims are made that it's not as risky as skateboarding and therefor not as "hardcore." This is not the case, as a skateboard solicits the option of detaching oneself from the convention of wheels in mid-fall, whereas inline or quad skates offer no such puss-out ability, and one's folly yields full, painful consequences.

Rollerblading breaks down into several styles, among which are speed skating, urban skating in a fashion similar to parkour, park skating in a skate park environment, hockey skating, and figure/jam skating, the least common. Each style utilizes a specific variation of equipment with differences in wheel size, ankle flexibility, elevation of wheel rails, and quality of bearings and wheel material.

Rollerblades can be rented at rock-bottom prices from your local roller rink, assuming that they are to be used in said rink. Often times there is a DJ or professional skater on duty that will be more than willing to help a beginner with the basics.
Guy 1: I've been rollerblading for about ten years now,
Guy 2: Ha, that's so gay, I can't believe you're such a fairy.
Guy 1: Well, fuck you.
