|I don't know Claudine, I think you are doing pretty good for just starting this summer! I've coached and trained new skaters for the last couple years with roller derby and months after they started they could barely keep their balance on a flat track, nevermind a skate ramp or park. And then there are the veteran skaters who wouldn't go near a ramp!
and i'm no pro or anything but what I've learned from watching and doing, is bending at the knees!!
wish me luck in Minnesota this weekend!!
