I suppose I can tell ya'll about when I first learned how to skate in (gasp!) 1992.....I don't remember what prompted a 22 year-old Me to get skates in the first place but I bought a pair of TRS Lightnings. I put them on at a local tennis court and got the hang of scooting around and such. It occurred to me after picking up speed that I had no idea how to use the brake. I decided a chain link fence might be a good expedient. I hit the fence and bounced right off and somehow spun around before hitting the ground.

That's when I realized that I had forgotten pads and wrist guards.

I wear them religiously now.
