"No, a decking isn’t made for roller blading on. For one the wheels on the blades are likely to be hard nylon or HDPE, this will damage even the composite type decking but even more so timber. Then there’s the safety aspect of a child falling off the decking ???"

"I would advise against it even in dry weather.
You can purchase anty slip mats on eBay to install over the top of the decking temporarily. hope this helps"
