Slideboards for Cross-training

Aug. 18, 2010

What Size Slideboard Should I Get?

QHi, Bill: We can't do a lot of inline skating here during our cold and snowy winters. So I’m thinking of buying a slideboard. I've heard they are a good way to keep in skating shape during the off-season. Can you please advise me on how long a slideboard I should get. I'm 183cm (6 feet) tall. The slideboards on the market are between 7 and 10 feet. Best regards - Tõnis from Estonia

Hi, Tõnis from Estonia: I’ve got to admit I’ve never been a big fan of slideboards. But that may have more to do with geography than anything else. I’ve done most of my coaching in Australia, New Zealand, Colombia and, in the summer, Europe.

In those climates, we could almost always train outside. So we didn’t need slideboards. My only real experience with slideboards came in the early days of inline skating when we were experimenting with them.

Slideboards are a popular tool for skaters in cold climates, like yours. But I do have one concern about them: the potential for injuring your ankles by repeatedly slamming them into the side rails of the slideboard at the end of each stroke.

So don’t be too aggressive on a slideboard....
