My 2013 New Year’s Challenge is to complete five slalom cones on just a single inline skate wheel. Either on one toe or one heel wheel. Before the start of the year I could wheely for about a second and managed a slight turn.
Today I managed to do seven cones! (It’s a pretty close 7).
I would like to eventually progress to a whole line of twenty cones. Still a lot to develop with this as I’ve seen people do it a lot slower with more control, but I did manage to also do a 360 spin whilst on the toe wheel. (need to video this). The thing is I’ve neglected my other tricks in the process, so I’ll therefore put the wheeling tricks aside for now...
One thing I found useful for doing a heel wheely is to start by doing a heel toe combination first (so on two skates). If you’re doing the toe wheel, start with a toe toe combination. By starting on two wheels you are more stable (as oppose to jumping straight on to the single wheel), then you can lift the stabilising leg with more control.
