Like Mini Skateboards for Your Feet

UD - Freeline SkatesSkateboarding. Roller-skating. Farrah Fawcett posters.

But enough about this weekend—let’s talk about your teenage years.

Every once in a while, you get nostalgic for those simpler times and want to rekindle that carefree spirit.

But let’s amp up the complexity a bit... and leave Farrah behind (sorry)...

Which leads us to Freeline Skates, a challenging combination of boardsports and in-line skating, now available at Fritz’s Miami Beach.

Imagine what you’d get if Tony Hawk went into business with Rollergirl from Boogie Nights: essentially, individual skateboards for your feet. Two small metal plates with grip material on top, and two longboard wheels underneath.

The sport’s been building underground buzz for a while, but it’s finally ready for your discerning approval. You’ll want to stash these in your beach bag next time you need to make a quick run from a boozy brunch at La Piaggia to supervise a mermaid-themed photo shoot on the beach. Or when that roller-derby-obsessed date suggests you race on the beach path in Lummus Park.

As you might guess, there’s a steep learning curve, so give yourself at least a week to master the maneuvers. But once you get the hang of it, you’ll be carving S-curves and dominating hills with the verve of a young Travolta.

With better hair, of course.
