  1. Hi. My son is 5 years old. He started skating around 1.5 years back. He is 5.5 years old. HE started with tenacity and approx. since last one year he is in quads. Does quad skates have future or should i switch him to inline ? I was planning to switch him to inline may be next year. Request your suggesstion.

    • Hi Mehul,

      Quad skates absolutely have a future in skating. It just depends on the type of skating your son is doing. If you are trying to get him into speed skating, then inline skating is where you’ll eventually want to go. While there is still quad speed skating at most speed skating meets, it has given way to inline speed skating. For artistic and jam skating, quads are still very strong. I have 2 daughters (both teenagers now) and they both started on quads. My youngest really is into speed skating and I switched her over to inlines when she was about 10. I could have started her around 6-7, I just didn’t because I am a quad skater and she didn’t show interest in speed skating until she was a little older. The best part about inlines is that there are multiple stories of inline roller speed skaters who have crossed over to ice and then gone to the Olympics. It is a real possibility, but of course like anything else, only a very select few ever get that far.

      As one last note, the most important thing is that your kiddo likes to skate. That’s why I went slow with my daughter’s move to inlines. It’s more important to me that she loves what she spends her time doing then whether she is in inlines or quads. If I had pushed her into inlines and she started falling more or having stability issues, then she may have given up on skating all together and disliked the sport. With that said, we have a number of kids at my local rink who are 5-6 years old in inlines, so get him a pair and let him try it out.

      Have fun and thanks for stopping by,

      Jeff

  3. Jeff,
    I used to skate both ice & quad roller skate lots when I was in Junior high and High school. I am now 67 and think I might want to give it a try again as a way to build more strength in my ankles and have fun at the same time. I also did some roller blading in the 90’s. Those roller blades are worn out and long gone. I still have my well made Sears skates with leather uppers from the 70’s. Is it a bad idea to give them a try or should I look for something new? Since I have not been following along I don’t know if there have been many advances in either the way they make skates.
    Thanks
    Guy

    • Welcome, Guy to the Roller Skate Dad website. If you have an old pair of skates that are still in good shape, I’d go for it! There is nothing better than a nice pair of leather boots that are already nice and broke in. You can always update the bearings / wheels if they don’t roll so great. Welcome back to skating! Glad you have come back to it. Keep on rollin’! Jeff
