Why we are so convinced that we will not only make it easy for you to get started and everything that concerns inline skating? In short, from our own many years of experience.
But let’s start from the beginning, from scratch. What equipment do I need, where and how do I start and how do I behave myself at a skate park or at streets? Isn’t inline skating dangerous? These are the questions that will be asked again and again.
First of all, inline skating is by no means dangerous. As in any sport, the right equipment must not be missing, for example knee and elbow pads, as well as wrist guards. It should also be worn a helmet. And so, we have already answered the question about the necessary equipment, because that’s all we need.
We do not want to deny that initially it might not be easy for you to stand on inline skates. You will probably feel a bit unsure, uncomfortable and take a somewhat rigid body posture. However, you do not need to be ashamed of it. This is perfectly normal and every sport has to be learned first.
And that’s exactly where we start. Together we will learn to fall safely and consciously. After that we devote ourselves intensively to the correct posture and foot position. And only then we will learn the first skating and braking techniques. For sure, after we mastered the mentioned techniques we will learn much, much more.
