Different kinds of skates for kids
Despite how many different skates there is to choose from there are only two types of skates. When purchasing skates you must decide between quad and inline skates. What you need to do is learn the difference between the two so you can select the right type for your child.
*Quad Skates – these are the skates you might remember from your own childhood. Quad skates have four wheels, two in front and two in back. The way the wheels are set up provide better balance making them a better choice for beginning skaters.
*Inline Skates – these are also referred to as “rollerblades.” Inline skates feature four to five wheels that are perfectly lined up. Inline skates can be difficult to use as they require a lot of leg and ankle strength. These skates are strongly recommended for children who are already comfortable on quad skates, as they require a lot of coordination.
