Just Bought Some Inlines

Recommended Posts

I finally went and got off my fat puerto rican ass and gone out and invested in a pair of Mission inline hockey skates. The thing is, I dont know how to skate.

however, I intend to learn so I can start playing hockey at a local inline rink. the closest ice facility to me is about a 45 minute drive away, so I have to settle for inline.

anyone got any pointers on how I can become somewhat of an adequate skater?

similar boat, the nearest rinks are in Kenosha and Milwaukee, so there are very few players here. i've made attempts to learn, i may try again one day. i know i got it in me :hockeysmiley:

i cant really give out ne pointers because the second i put on skates i knew how to skate. it was the weirdest thing, and i was 5! and then a month later i tried it with skates and had the same thing!

i guess all i could say is keep your knees bent and good luck!!!

what the teachers at the ice rink by my house said to my nephew when he was learning to skate was when you start out just walk with the skates and that's supposed to get you in the motion of skating.

I had the same thing happen to me that Snowcap did. I didn't start ice skating till I was ten but I was emediately good at it. :hockeysmiley:

well Ive got the motion of walking in them down so far, so I guess Im headed in the right direction.

just gotta keep at it I guess. eventually I will get it.

I just dont want to embarass myself when I actually do start playing

Keep practicing. The first time I put on skates was when I was 2 years old, and I still to this day practice. That's really the only thing you can do. I mean there's really no "pointers" excpet for the obvious one of practice. Good luck with it :hockeysmiley:
