Hi, I'm Tim Phang. I'm 23 years old. I've been skating for about 12 years. I'm from Arlington, Virginia which is right outside of Washington, D.C. I'm now sponsored by Universal Skate Design, and I'm going to be talking to you about rollerblading. Cess slides in rollerblading are a basic but tricky maneuver. The general idea is that you're going to be sliding along the ground on the side of your skate, on the side of your boot. It's a lot like a grind but performed on a flat surface. It can be performed on any surface but the smoother the better. Because you don't want your skate to get caught on anything. The basic steps to performing cess slides are that you want to make sure you are going fast enough. That you're actually going to be able to slide. Then you want to turn your skate so that your boot is along the ground. Make sure that you find a good balance point in the middle so that you don't slip back. But you also don't want to lean too far forward. You'll then start sliding. A lot of times to get out of the cess slide you just kind of lift your foot and turn. Then you'll start rolling again. You also have to make sure you are low enough. That your wheels don't touch the surface you are sliding across. Otherwise, you'll stick up and then fly forward. You'll often see cess slides in combination with other tricks. You can cess slide before a grind or you can do a grind and then land in a cess slide. Cess slides can be done as tricks by themselves or and also to lose speed.
