I had a mom come in with a pair of skates for her son and ask for 1/8". I asked her to call her son to be absolutely sure that's what he wanted. He did. The skates were size 8 or 9. I asked where he played and she mentioned one of the New England prep schools.

It can be done, but I wouldn't recommend somebody going straight to 1/4" hollow. If you like a deeper bite and you're used to 3/8", I'd work my way deeper and deeper rather than jumping to 1/4"
