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. One trick that a lot of people do in rollerblading is called jumping gaps. Gaps are anything from sets of stairs to patches of grass. Essentially, anytime your jumping over an obstacle, your jumping a gap. When your jumping gaps, some people like to spin over them. Spins in aggressive skating are measured in degrees so there is a 360 or a 180 or if your not spinning at all and you start backwards and end backwards, thats known as a "zero spin". When your doing zero spind the most important thing is to make sure you have your balance correct. Firstly, you want to make sure your going to have a enough speed that your going to be able to clear the obstacle. Then you want to turn backwards, look over which ever shoulder is more comfortable for you. When you reach the obstacle, you want to jump and then in the air you want to make sure your able to spot your landing and keep balanced. When you hit the ground, you want to compress your knees to absorb some of the shock of the landing and make sure that your aren't leaning to far forward or backward. If your leaning to far backward you run the risk of falling backwards and hitting your head. If your running to far forwards your feet will come out from under you and you'll end up dragging your knees on the ground.
