Which is better Ice or roller skating?

I've done both ice skating ad roller skating. I enjoyed ice skating but I wanted expand myself I bought a good fitting pair of roller skates! I found body position was every important. In my opinion the Biggest difference between ice and roller skating are "edges"! Ice skates have one blade on each boot--the ice blade is very narrow--but is still has an inside and a outside edge Roller skates have four wheels and each wheel has an inside and outside edge BUT the edges are 3/4" apart from each other!! When I was ice skating we didn't have inside ice rinks! I had a problem with edges in completion---but I finally found how to REALLY master theoss edges!!!

Are roller skating and ice skating the same?

No, they're not the same. If you're roller skating or roller blading, you have a boot with buckles on it, and you have wheels on the bottom of the boot. You use them on land. If you're ice skating, you have a half-shoe, half-boot that's either white or tan colored (for the girls) and usually black (for the boys). There aren't any buckles on ice skates, there are shoelaces. On the bottom, there are blades, not wheels. You use these kind of skates on ice, not on land.
