Roller Freestyle or known unofficially as Aggressive Inline Skating is a sport in which you must be fearless to accomplish amazing stunts and tricks.
Aggressive skating originated from Street Skating which encompasses pulling off grind tricks on street curbs, handrails, or airing off-ramps.
Vert Skating on the other hand is skating on 10 to 13 feet high U-shaped ramps (Half-pipes/Vert Ramps) and feeling the rush of big airs.

Where to slide/slalom?The official ground for slide and slalom is located in Downtown East at Pasir Ris, in an Indoor Skating Rink – Hi Roller Singapore. It is furnished with the national competing ground and will be perfect for your training. Slide training is held every Thursday at 8PM and there is a $10 chargeable fee. In any case you'd like to practice outside of Hi Roller's training hours: For Slalom, you'll need a flat open surface, a set of cones, measuing tape and a marker. For Slide, you'll only need a flat open surface.
