Tried a few times. Never got the knack. Rollerblades too. Never ‘got it’ – hurt my ankles. But i *did* buy a pair of these in the mid 1990s as the Australian sales ppl were a part of mailing list for “Branding” and I wanted to be one of the first in the USA to have these:
6′ tall, about 25 years old, bouncing around suburbia in these, running at supersonic speeds. It was a blast.
Kangaroo jumps – they’re amazing! You can’t stand still in them but once you start moving and get the knack, you’re bouncing high and moving far.
I’d *still* use ‘em but they rotted away about 5 years ago – elastic snapped. Still, I got a good 13 years of use out of them on and off.
