In-Line Skating Basics for Beginners | Rollerblading

Hi, I’m Tim Phang. I’m 23 years old. I’ve been skating for about 12 years. I’m from Arlington, Virginia which is right
outside of Washington, D.C. I’m now sponsored by Universal Skate Design,
and I’m going to be talking to you about rollerblading. When you first start out skating you’re going
to want to learn how to stand up comfortably on your skates. If you haven’t stood on skates before you
should probably use a handrail or have a friend with you so you can put your hand on they’re
shoulder; they can help make sure that you’re comfortable. After you’re able to stand then you should
learn to skate forwards and backwards. I recommend doing it in a place where you’re
sure that you’re not going to be interfered with by other people. So if you have a driveway or if there’s a
parking lot around where you’re sure you’ll be safe. After you’ve learned how to skate forwards
you should practice skating backwards, turning around, turning left and right; eventually
work your way up to a crossover. After you’ve mastered these basics you can
make your way to some place like a skate park where there’s obstacles for you to skate. Learn how to do some simple grinds and some
simple airs, forwards and backwards, you can learn to spin and spin onto grinds. Then of course you can always step up to larger
obstacles once you’ve learned the basic tricks.

    so yeah i can skate (both on ice and on roller blades) i just wanted to know if skating in aggressive inline skates is the same as skating with roller hockey skates. Do i have to find my balance all over again with the aggressive skates or no?

    try sports direct search mens roller skates and find the air walks they are half price and are £40 find your size they work pretty well

  6. stefanc93 says:

    hey man i really do not recommend airwalk stuff as suggested else where. A good pair is what i had, Alchemy pure air they are £99 and I got mine from Hard-Core Hobbies, they are a standard frame but a nice ride and great padding and shock absorbers a little heavy but trust me that is actually good.

  11. Smoth says:

    This isn't basics, this is goofy stunt stuff. why not make a video showing the proper moving, and stopping techniques. after that the kids can learn to stunt.

  12. Shabashaly says:

    Tim Phang sucks in his how to videos he just tells you these are the things you need to learn without explaning anything like how do you crossover or what is a crossover

  13. syed saad says:

    What’s the point of just telling us what we can do. How are you supposed to do this stuff if you don’t know how to skate? Weirdest “lesson” I’ve ever seen.
