Well I would definitely agree with that, I learnt a huge majority of my slalom tricks through watching vids online, however one of the first tricks which I tried to pick up, the crazy, I could not figure it out from videos. When somebody turned up to one of my local skate spots who had been taught how to do it demonstrated it I got it straight away. However that honestly was the only trick that I felt I really couldn't learn from video so don't loose hope if you can't find anyone nearby to help.
Naomi occasionally does slalom teaching weekends in London, it would probably be worth coming to one of those as I suspect you'll pick up a lot very quickly.
