Inline figure skating is figure skating on inline figure skates -- three or fourwheel frames with a toe-stop, mounted on figure skating boots in rockered configuration.

Inline figure skating began as an off-ice training alternative for ice figure skaters. The International Roller Sports Federation (FIRS) has recognized it as artistic roller skating on inline skates and includes inline figure skating freestyle competitions at its world championships.[1][2] Most of the participants are quad/inliners.[citation needed]

On the other hand some ice figure skating member federations such as the ISU recognize the value of inline figure skating as off-ice training and many ice figure skating coaches have become qualified and certified ice/inline figure skating and dance coaches.[citation needed]
