Your First 3 Steps As A Beginner Roller Skater
Cannonball. Bend your knees and make yourself small. When you're feeling unstable, get into this position.
1
Practice it without shoes
Practice getting in and out.
Pick a cheek and practice falling.
Bubbles: with bubbles you create a bubble shaped movement with your feet on the ground to get forward. It's a great exercise for your leg strength
2
Posture: bend your knees, belly button in, eyes at the horizon.
Feet in a V shape, push your feet out, pivot on your heels and pull your legs in
Don't forget to bend your knees. It's a push and pull motion. Push out, pull in.
Plough stop: when you're doing bubbles, you can use the plough stop to stop.
3
When your toes meet, put pressure on your outside edges to stop (the outside of your feet, so your little toes). Only do this when going slow!
