Hey, I think it was you I was talking about coffin style skating with...Like a really long time ago.
Anyway, the one in the bottom right is what it looks like.
:thumb331647440: You can actually lean farther to the ground and pretty much rub your cheek across the floor if you wanted to. Everybody freaks out about this move because you're on one foot when you do it.

I did enjoy rollerblades when I was a kid and ice skating was fun too but I never tried skates, and I don't hink I've ever heard about coffin style skating before.
If I did, I would probably have asked you about why it is called coffin style, don't tell me.... it's so dangerous... everyone who tries it... they all end up in... a coffin ?
No that sounds too ominous, maybe it's because it's such an inconfortable position you can't help but start coughing.... haha yes, I'm still hilarious.
So yeah, I could be wrong but I don't think that was me.
On the other hand I feel like we did talk about skating in the past... that really does ring a bell, maybe I just forgot.

Let me tell you something Rachel, if you're going to post a link about skating, you gotta do it right, that link's not working ! 
And we all know how much you love Link, how could you ?

I put my Sherlock hat on and I found the picture you wanted to show me.
I have to admit, that girl looks pretty cool, and confident, I bet she could touch the floor EASILY.
But I think we can all agree that the ones stealing the show on that pictures are the rollerblades one... rollerblades FTW !!!

Lol, It's called coffin style because you have to lay down to do it. I think that's why it's called that anyway! ...Sorta looks like your in a coffin... Ah, silly name. Why don't you come up with something better for it!
I feel like we could have talked about it before and just forgot about it.. I don't know!

Oh, and the link.. Hahaha my bad! Glad you found it Sherlock!
Yeah, he can do this little spin thing and hop off the ground. I can't do jumping moves very well. I like staying in contact with the floor at all times whilst skating or else the floor will hurt me.

Roller blades are a lot like ice skates. I'm alright with ice skating, but nothing fancy.
Most kids these days like the roller blades. They like the speed. roller skates are better for tricks though.
...Actually roller skates are better at everything. They are the best. THE BEST! Roller skates FTW!!!!

Haha that's the spirit !
I haven't done any skating, ice or street in ages, but indeed I remember that rollers and ice skating was very similar.
I found out later that there are also  similarities with mini skis ( not sure how it's called, they are literrally shorter version of skis) when you're
on flat ground, especially if you choose not to use ski sticks (who needs those anyways?).
Then as you gain speed and begin to slide, the similarities fade away and it becomes something else.

I never did any jumping either as far as I remember.
I'm okay with jumping as long as there is something to absorb the impact of the many falls I'm going to make.
It can be snow, that's skiing; or water, that's water skating, pretty much the same thing as ice except with water,
I'm told someone actually pulled it off something like 2000 years ago, no one has been succesful since, I wonder who that guy was.

Back on topic, yeah ice or ground is way too solid for me too, I'm okay with sliding/goofing around/mild falls on ice but that's it. 
I did suffer some memorable falls on tarmac with bicycles but I don't think I ever did with roller skates.
Did you ?
I'll think of a side name for coffin style :thumbsup:
