Skating involves any sports or recreational activity which consists of traveling on surfaces or on ice using skates.

There are several different kinds of skating :

Ice[edit]

  • Ice skating, moving on ice by using ice skates
    • Figure skating, a sport in which individuals, duos, or groups perform on figure skates on ice
    • Speed skating, a competitive form of ice skating in which the competitors race each other in traveling a certain distance on skates
    • Tour skating, a sport and recreational form of long distance ice skating on natural ice

Hard surface[edit]

  • Roller skating, the traveling on surfaces with roller skates
    • Inline skating, traveling on surfaces with skates having one line of wheels
    • Artistic roller skating, a sport similar to figure skating but where contestants run on roller skates instead of ice skates
    • Road skating, the sport of skating (inline skating or roller skating) on roads, much like road cycling. It shares much with inline speed skating
  • Skateboarding, an action sport which involves riding and performing tricks using a skateboard

Snow[edit]

  • Snow skating, using a hybrid of a skateboard and a snowboard on snow
