Freeskates consist of two separate metal or wooden plates with two wheels attached. People call it freeskating, freeline skating, or drift skating.[1][2][3][4]


They were developed in 2003 in San Francisco by Ryan Farrelly.[5] Farrelly founded a company called Freeline that has since gone out of business. Freeskating is practiced around the world.[6][7][8]
