SkateXtreme is a good option for wannabe rollerbladers in the east. Its outlets include Yishun Park, Punggol Park and Bedok Reservoir – all highly accessible and beginner-friendly locations. If you can't quite commit to picking up the sport yet, give the 1-hour trial session ($10) a try to help you make up your mind. Once you're certain that rollerblading is for you, you can go all-in with the $120 packages that consist of eight 90 minute sessions at a location of your choice.
One of the best things about Singapore is the abundance of park connectors and smooth, flat terrain for recreational sports like jogging, cycling and skateboarding. You don't have to look far to find rollerblading enthusiasts either. People love the sport for its many purported health benefits, cool variations like speed skating, classic slalom and speed slalom, as well as the fact that it's good plain fun both solo and with family and friends.
Like with any new hobby, rollerblading requires some training and practice, as well as new gear in your arsenal. Whether you're interested in picking it up as a casual hobby or keen to advance to expert levels – here's a guide on where to learn, what you need, where to buy it and the best places in Singapore to put your new skills to the test.
