Default Skating stairs forward


I practice skating stairs forward... up to now I managed to skate 5 stairs.. knees and pelvis bent and skating at jogging speed are the most important rules I guess..
I want to progress to 7-8 stairs but fear stops me...
I have a question in regards to stairs types:

Does anyone have experience with stairs like the graphic - 'dangerous stairs' from the website above? and they really dangerous to roll?

It is safely done with each foot on a different step for stability. The roll is needed to allow one foot to be flat while the other foot drops. It gets more dangerous with shorter rolls because there will be insufficient surface for a foot to go flat after a drop.

By the way, some have already skated down multiple flights of stairs backward.

Have you given though to where you can use stairs without abusing a facility?
- Just roll with it
