Heel stop may cause a skater to trip in cases of speed or slalom skating. However, if you are yet a beginner you will need either a heel stop or toe stop. You surely do not want to crash to mirrored walls or to street post while inline skating.
Inline skating is a fun activity. It is also a good aerobic exercise and good cross training option for other sports. Inline skating also offers sports opportunity for the entire family. Inline skating also offers less risk of injury with proper training and use of safety gears.
You will want a softer wheel if you are using it outside. It absorbs the cracks, rocks, bumps,etc. But a harder wheel will go a lot faster and will last longer also. Hardness is measured on a durometer, with 0 being the softest and 100 being the hardest. Most of the inline skates come with a hardness of 78A to 82A. They can be used inside or outside. I would go with a 78A if you are going to use it mostly for outside skating. A beginning skater could go to a 70A and it would be ok. If you are skating inside, I would look for a 85A or higher wheel. But if you are new to skating, it is OK to stay with the 78A to 82A.
