Don't take any advice from anyone who doesn't skate well themselves

If you're not wearing pads, then on the arse in the way to go.
Agree, but what does that have to do with skating?Becca wrote:on the arse in the way to go.
Yes, and also get yourself wrist pads, its pretty easy to break your wrists unconciously trying to stop the fall with your hands.Dragonfly wrote:*Note to self: MUST BUY KNEE PADS!* Lets just say taking a shower last night was...uhm...tricky

Same for ice skating (land floppy, slide then brace for the boards), and ramps (land floppy then slide), how you fall should depend on the surface too, it is kind of hard to remember that at the point of stacking though. Ho hum.

Got wrist pads, they have come in pretty handy so far.
