SkatefreshAshaQ&A with Asha: “What wheel size do you use day to day”
from SkatefreshAsha on 22 Dec 2022

In this video (from my father’s Ugandan veranda) I share with you my current and previous wheel sizes but also some advice about choosing wheel size and some assumptions to beware of. This was asked by @Integratedhomeinspections on Instagram.Equipment is important, but beware of thinking that new or different equipment will create overnight miracles or magic in your skating. This is a commonly held belief and no wonder considering the amount of videos on YouTube talking about skate equipment…..there’s literally thousands of videos educating (and maybe confusing you) about boot & frame options, wheels, wheel sizes, frame positions etc etc, it’s literally endless.Obviously, your equipment should be comfortable and suited to the kind of skating you do the most. But it wont automatically create immediate effects, unless your technique is developed enough to be able to take advantage of the specifics changes in the equipment.Let me ask you. Does everyone wearing a slightly rockered frame have perfect looking wizard skating? Clearly not. A rockered frame can help with achieving the curves needed for good wizard skating but they don’t create those automatically. Only your correct technique does that.So I’m inviting you to focus more on your technique and practicing the right progressions to achieve a new skill rather than obsessing about your equipment.Come and use any of my full progression video lessons where you can work through the stages one by one and feel a sense of achievement after each skate session, knowing you are on your way to getting your chosen skill.Go to and click “Learn Online” to choose between “Inline Courses” or “Quads courses” or “Yoga for Skaters” as well as Spanish and Portuguese courses.
