    All you need to learn how to slide is a pair of knee pads, try and find some with a smooth texture.

    Just run and drop to your knees, try it out on a smooth cement surface, black top will eat away the plastic too fast. Your shoes will get ruined so wear sturdy material or only slide indoors. Some people use gloves or spark gloves, these are not necessary. The best training is to slide at a wall or object and train your body to stop on a dime.

    You'll get a good work out if you practice enough, so get water and be ready to sweat.

    My friend brad does slides all night, its a coated finished floor though so its semi smooth, he uses catchers knee pads, and the knee parts have a smooth plastic on them, in fact normally his mask is a basball cap with a skull on it, the hallway is really narrow to so he can steady with his hands as well, we use a light shining in thier eyes so they dont see him coming
    hope you are young cause its a pain on your knees

    Hey, I'm a slider at King's Dominion in Doswell Virginia. I've been doing it for three years now and I have yet to find a pair of kneepads that work just like the ones we have there. I do have some suggestions though.

    We slide on blacktop. It seems to work the best.

    Gloves are not necessary but I like to have wrist pads. They help when doing 360's or my personal favorite, jumping over someone straight into an all four slide.

    The knee pads we use have a detachable puck. They seem to work the best.

    Have fun and don't expect to ever get conditioned to sliding. I'm 18 and am athletic (Soccer, Wrestling, Football) and I am still beat at the end of a night of scaring.

    What about using motorcycle slid knee pads? Would they work and possibly not wear as quickly? They are expensive but that what I was figuring on trying out for the season.

    It looks like they would work fine. The only advantage of having removable pucks is the fact that you can rotate them to keep the spots that you wear out the most don't wear out too fast.
