Question Inline skating lessons in LA area

I'm new here, so first of all hello everybody.

I've started skating again after 15 years, and I'd be interested in taking lessons in the Santa Monica/Venice area in Los Angeles.

The sticky post in this forum's main page suggests several places in this area, but when I visited their websites many of them seemed not to have been updated in years (I've still contacted them, just in case, and I'm now hoping to hear back from them).

In the meantime, can you recommend any place to take lessons in the LA area?

Thank you!!

M.

Google "skate 101 trish alexander". This used to be available through the K2 site. Not listed there anymore, but google will get you to the videos on youtube. I watched this stuff before I got a pair of inlines a few years back. I got on inlines and did fine.

Default thanks for the suggestion

Thanks for the suggestion, Rufus.

I think I'd feel more secure after taking some lessons, but failing that the videos you suggest should be enough.

I usually skate in OC, but I get to Moonlight in Glendale most Mondays. I skate quads these days, but if you would like some pointers on inlines, let me know. Moonlights' monday adult night is 8 to 11. A little personal instruction is great. You can get immediate feedback on what you are doing right or wrong and progress quicker.

There was a Skate Instructors Association in the USA, but their website seems to be defunct, so maybe the association is too.

Try the inline skating certification program (ICP). They have a directory with instructors here:

http://www.inlinecertificationprogra...tor-directory/

There are a large list of instructors for the USA, so you might have to wade through it to find ones in LA. There doesn't seem to be any contact details for many of them, so you may need to Google them.

Thank you all for your suggestions.

I'm still trying to get lessons, but I think the different videos you have suggeted will have to do in the meantime.

Who would have thought it'd be so difficult to get private instruction around here, given the number of skaters around!!

Thank you again, at least I have something to get started on.
