FROM SKATELOG FORUM HOST KATHIE FRY IN MARCH OF 2020:
This announcement is to let everyone know that after hosting the SkateLog Forum and its predecessors for nearly 20 years, I have decided it is time to permanently turn the forum over to a new owner and administrator. I cannot think of anyone more suitable to take on that role than my SkateLog forum co-host, Florida skater Jessica Wright. I am pleased to announce that Jessica has agreed to establish and host a brand new skating forum, configured like the SkateLog Forum, but with a new name and a new Web Site. This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

NEW FORUM NAME: SkateDebate Forum
NEW WEB SITE: SkateDebate.com
NEW OWNER AND ADMINISTRATOR: Jessica Wright

Beginning Skaters Forum This is the place for beginning skaters to ask questions and share their stories. We would love to hear about your experiences learning to skate. No question is too dumb!

Default Does anyone have a video clip for beginners on how to start the first steps.

Hi All,

I want to learn skating, i dont know where to start. I have the skating shoes. I want to learn the first few steps. If there is a video of few steps for beginners it would make it a lot easier.

Thanks,
Kenny.

Kenny,

The first steps begin with a mirror of inner and outer edges. Force your toes inward and outward doing the opposite with the other foot. This will tire you but your leg muscles will increase in power.

You'll build balance and power.

Report back.
