Starting Off...
When starting off

1.   Wear protective gear. This will save you from injuries and also increase your confidence enabling you to learn faster.

2. Don't be afraid or embarrassed to fall. It's a fact that you will fall at some point and skaters of all abilities fall occasionally. Just remember not to tense up as you fall and you'll be okay.

3. Don't run before you can walk. Over-confidence is the main fault for falls. Take your time and you'll get there in the end.
