Youtube and Vimeo are your friends, you can search for your favorite Pros such as Chris Haffey, Eric Bailey, Brian Aragon, Billy ONeil, Brian Shima, Franky Morales, etc.. or type the words "rollerblading, "rolling", or "aggressive inline".
Visit local skateparks and meet with other Bladers in your area!
While "fitness inline" might be fairly easy to learn taking it up a few many notches to "freestyle rolling" will require patience and perseverance.. Having the wheels attached under your feet will make it harder at first but eventually will allow you to go fast and fly high!
Most big sport stores carry products suitable to get you started, for cheap, but we don't recommend those as they will most likely fall apart quickly.
Things to look out for when buying your first skates:
- sturdy construction ("designed for freestyle/aggressive")
- padded liner offering little or no pressure points on the foot
- solid frames w/ urethane wheels
- "soul" space to do tricks.
Getting some good quality skates right away will end up saving you money in the long run. Ask your local skateshop for advice. There are also plenty of online stores which will be happy to assist you, google.com is your friend!
You can also ask around in web forums or contact the skate brands for more specific info and/or shop locations.
