For me, "Freestyle Skating" means: Slalom, Sliding, Jumping etc. on Inline or Quad Skates. The ones whith wheels, you know? Sorry, no Ice Skates or Skateboards ;)
This is a collection of links to show you what it is, how much fun it is, and to help you learning it. Enjoy!
World Slalom Series, information about Freestyle competitions
Cris Pers' Blog, a slalom skater from Barcelona
Megan McIntosh's Blog, a slalom skater from the USA, now living in Belgium

Kompakombo, I don't know what "Kompakombo" means, but you will find many nice slalom trick videos there... :)
Grant's skating page, many slalom tricks here, too!
Warning: Personal opinion There used to be quite a few internet forums about skating and freestyle. Some of them still exist, and if you invest lots of time and search for old articles, they are very interesting. Unfortunately, there are only two forums left over (again: My personal opinion!) in which people still write interesting articles, reports, opinions etc. and they are Rollerclub Forum and Gava Freestyle Forum. Unfortuantely, both are not in English, but Russian and Spanish instead, and if you don't understand it, it's even hard to understand with translation services ;) But they are both worth checking from time to time!
Check out the Battle Bremen home page in case you missed this Freestyle event ;)
If you are living in Bremen and want to learn Freestyle, check the Hochschulsport page if there is a course with me ;)
