In-line SkatingBook - 1998
Speed, excitement and fun are all part of the experience when enthusiasts strap on a pair of in-line skates. What began as an off-season training activity has exploded onto the world's sporting scene, with participation growing more than 500 percent in the last 5 years.
In the follow-up to the highly successful first edition, In-Line Skating (Second Edition) has been updated and expanded in its coverage of what makes in-line so exciting: roller hockey, racing, and aggressive skating.
For skaters new to the sport, In-Line Skating provides five step-by-step chapters on how to master skating technique. The millions of skaters looking for new trends in the sport can brush up on their technique, train for a race, pick up roller hockey, or learn how to try some of the trick skating they see on TV.
The book's highlights include:
- advice on the latest in-line equipment
- 104 photos and illustrations showing skating technique
- 39 drills, and exercises
- two race training programs for in-line skating
- roller hockey rules, drills, and descriptions of necessary equipment

This book combines the skating and fitness expertise of Mark Powell with the skills of one of the leading skate designers in the world, former in-line racer John Svensson. Together they explain and show the skills and thrills that make in-line so appealing to skaters of all ages and abilities.
