Aggressive Inline is a 2002 video game (video game). Aggressive skating (sometimes known as rollerblading, blading, skating, or rolling by participants) is a sub-discipline of inline skating that focuses on the execution of techniques from the action sports canon. Grinds and leaps are accommodated by aggressive inline skates that have been properly developed. The term "aggressively skate" also applies to the gameplay style of many skating games.
The game was released for the PlayStation 2 and Xbox and was developed by Evolution Studios and published by Sony Computer Entertainment America. It was the first game in the Roller Hockey series and was followed by a sequel called Extreme Skate Street in 2003.
Inline hockey has been popular in Europe and North America since the 1970s while in Japan it has become more popular since the 1990s. However, inline skating is not as popular in Japan as it is in the other countries because of the difficulty of learning how to balance on one foot while moving forward.
Inline hockey and inline soccer are the only two sports in which players use their feet to move the ball or puck along the ground. In all other field hockey games, such as pick up games or beach games, the ball or puck is moved using an implement held in the hand or, in croquet's case, a mallet.
Roller inline hockey, sometimes known as inline hockey, is a type of hockey played on a hard, smooth surface, with players moving on inline skates and shooting a hard, plastic puck into their opponent's goal to win points. In-line roller hockey

Frames, wheels, and components for aggressive skates: aggressive skates are designed to be utilized for stunts, from grinding down handrails to leaping stair gaps and all in between. These products are commonly used by stunt performers in movies and television shows.
Stunts can be used to create excitement in a film or television show. An actor will often use an aggressive skate to perform a trick or stunt. For example, an actor may use the wheel of an aggressive skate to roll back and forth along a floor or wall to create a scene for a movie or television show.
There are three main types of aggressive skates: street, inline, and downhill. Street skates are designed for walking on streets and other flat surfaces. They have one large wheel in front and one behind as well as metal edges on the bottom that allow them to climb over objects. Street skates usually come with two sets of wheels, a 7-inch version and a 9-inch version. Inline skates are designed for skating on ice or other smooth surfaces. They have two small wheels at each end and no metal edges on their bottom surface. Downhill skates are designed for skiing or snowboarding down hills. They have four small wheels and a plastic edge on their bottom surface to help them turn.
Inline skating is a multi-disciplinary sport that encompasses a variety of activities performed on inline skates. Inline skates generally feature two to five polyurethane wheels mounted in a single line on the underside of the boot by a metal or plastic frame. The sport also includes skateboarding, which is performed on regular boards with trucks under each foot and ankle straps attached to the board behind the rider's feet. Inline skating is often considered a form of physical activity or exercise because it forces the user to move their legs quickly in order to stay aloft.
The first inline skating rinks were opened in the United States in the early 1990s. They differed from traditional roller skating rinks in that they were designed for multiple users at once, and they usually included features such as seating, lighting, and landscaping. These new rinks were inspired by classic American sports facilities such as baseball diamonds and football fields, and they attracted participants from around the world who were looking for alternative forms of entertainment. Since then, more inline skating venues have been built across the United States, and many other countries have followed suit by constructing their own.
Inline skating is popular among adults as well as children. There are many clubs and organizations that cater to inline skaters of all abilities and sizes. Inline skating is also used as a means of transportation in certain cities where there is a lack of public transport.
Aggressive inline skating was dropped from the ESPN X-Games in 2005, although it is still included in the Asian X Games, LG Action Sports Events, Montpellier Fise, and many other significant competitions, some of which are affiliated with WRS and others that are not. The reason given by ESPN for dropping the event was that most people who watched the X Games wanted to see real skateboard tricks, not in-line skates tricks. However, this excuse does not hold water since there were many other inline skating events at the time (such as Atomic Hoops) that did not receive this rating.
In fact, the very first inline skating competition at the X Games was even called "Aggressive Inline Skating". It took place in 2001 at Santa Cruz with an estimated crowd of 3,000 people. Mark Landowski was the best male performer out of eight total competitors, while Alissa Chin won female division. "Aggressive" was removed from the name only after it generated negative feedback from the inline skating community. Even so, it can be argued that ESPN made the right call by removing an event that they knew would not draw much attention to itself.
After its debut at the X Games, "Atomic Hoops" went on to become one of the most popular events at the annual action sports festival, attracting crowds up to 10,000 people.
