|I sent you back an email!
Everyone here is very nice. No need to worry for just starting. Most of these guys have been doing it for years but not me. Like I mentioned, just started this summer and totally fell in love with it. Its been the best time of my life since I started so trying to pass along what I've learned. Feel free to email me anytime cause always happy to help. And I will post some of my pics, my first tries and funny failures so you can learn from me and with me together. Or just humor yourself with my "goofy" skating. I'm just into it for fun and fun I am having. Oh cool! Its always nice to have another skating pal. :-D
: Hi Zorg
: Thanks a lot! Now I have an idea of how to start, thats great. Its to bad that you dont know any scandinavian person whos quad skating, but I´m going to try to take the inlines from at least one of my girlfriends so that I have someone to start with. That would be great..
: Again, thanks, Majja
: : Hi Majja,
: : Welcome on Bernhard forum!!! I know nobody from Scandinavia, but maybe some of the forum members/readers know, in any case it's one of the rare places where you can find others vert quad skaters.
: : If you want to start learning vert, just use a helmet+other protecs and try (from the bottom!!!) to make circles, trying to go a bit higher at each loop. Try to learn to fall on your knee pads. Claudine has written the main tips here.
: : Don't forget to rest between 2 runs, I usually spend this time for analysing was good/wrong in the previous run, and thinking about what to do in the next run....
: : If you have fun, you will progress rapidly (See Claudine???)
: : Peace,

: : : Hello everyone
: : : I´m a girl from Sweden who wonders if anyone know any scandinavian rollerskater girl? I was rollerskating when I was a little girl and I just loved it!!! I have tryed some inlines and a little skateboarding but that was nothing compered with the feeling I hade with my old school rollerskaters! I saw some clips on the web with vertical rollerskating and it was awesome! That thought has never stiked me that I could take my old rollerskaters to a vert. I really want to try it, but I have never skated in a vert before, therfore it would be great with some advises. What should I start with, tricks etc.?
: : : Hope to get some responce and help.
: : : Best regards Majja
