On April 23, 2017 in OC Harfa in Prague´s Vysočany has taken place the first year Inline Festival. Meeting of fans and supporters of inline skating and all, who are interested in this "wheel sport". There was not only rich accompanying program but also testing of new models of skates for season 2017.
Program and big names
Inline Festival, which we as Inline Centrum organized, attracted hundreds of interested people and fans of inline skating. The part of program was not only testing of skates but also interesting program. There were fans of speed skating, freestyle slalom, aggressive skating (U-ramp and Rail contest), trek skating and Roller Derby, but also other skating disciplines. There were also connected freestyle scooters, and it was thanks to Scootshop.cz, which specializes in this discipline.
We are glad, that at our event the top czech freestyle sportsmen including real legends showed their art. There were awesome tricks. Freestyle scootering, skateboarding, BMX, Roller Derby and of course also freestyle and aggressive skating. There was big U-ramp for sportsmen, where you could see real top tricks, where you could hide breath.
For all we can at least name stars as Martin Nogol, Petr Manďák, Petr Brabec, Honza Tomšovský, Přemek Jakeš or Michael Böhm.
There was a large interest at match Roller Derby with explanations of rules, shows from speed skating from Petr Manďák or show of tricks on railings at rail contest. But the biggest cool thing was U-ramp, where took turns skateboarders, skaters, bikers and stars on FS scooters.
For visitors there was prepared our stand with skates and accessories and with 20% festival discount. Of course we were there to give advice, as experienced skaters we always share our experiences from skating and sale.

So all fans of skating had something for themself and they could judge differencies between each models.
