Park skating is really similar to vertical skating but usually uses smaller ramps and sometimes has a mixture of park skating elements mixed in as well. Street skating typically refers to skating which is done on the street with what is available such as handrails, ledges, stairs, etc.
After you have been rollerblading for a while, you will realize that there is a need to take care of your skates. One option is to wear down the wheels and then just replace the skate and wheels. Very few people can afford doing that. The part of the inline skate that wears out more quickly is the wheels. Obviously, a cheap boot could fall apart. But in the article I am assuming you have bought a boot that has some quality. Since the wheels are the areas where wear is most often seen, there are a couple of things you can do to keep your skates (boots, etc.) for a long time.
You could read through the classified ads in your local newspaper to see if anyone is selling a second-hand pair of rollerblades, which you could pick up cheaply and then remove the inline skate wheels and fit them to your own rollerblades. You could buy a new pair of inline skates - costly, but if your needs have changed and you are now using your inline skates for a different purpose to the one you had originally in mind, buying new ones may be the best.
Secondly, after you have rotated your wheels and got a lot more use out of your skates, it will eventually become necessary to replace the wheels. Just like car tires, they wear out! My recommendation is to go online and search for the wheels. You will find them for sale either individually or in packs of 8. Most inline skates will not need more than 4 wheels on each skate. Perhaps you would like to have a bigger wheel. If you look on the frame, there should be stamped or painted the maximum size you can have on your skate. With that information on hand, go check online and find what you are looking for!
The wheel is the most important part of any inline skate. There are a few questions you need to answer before you select the wheels. Where will you be doing your inline skating? If it is inside, you might like a harder wheel. How will you use your skates? Is it for recreation, roller hockey, racing? This will help determine the hardness as well as the size of the wheel. Also, you need to know that you can easily change the wheels of your skate. It takes just a few minutes.
