I'm still scared, and I can't stop, or turn. How long will this take? Does everyone eventually get it? Because, I don't feel very confident.
Are you trying to skate with quads or inlines? I know what you're saying. I remember the very first time I tried to skate at a rink and two people had to hold me up! I'm kind of a slow learner, and it took me quite a few weeks of skating every Friday and Saturday night before I could even skate on my own. But if you're naturally athletic and coordinated(unlike me), you'll probably do real well. Good luck!
