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.
Haha. I'm terrible for not wearing protective gear. I think I've worn them once. They felt all hot and horrible. I know I'll learn my lesson one day and start wearing it.
