: He Roller_Dudette, be carefull with RollerSkater Dave, he knows everything and he blew up my cover also LOL:

Oh, I should have gone with SuperGirl!! Darn, next time huh?
: BTW, for learning vert:
: Each session:
: -Pads up (all armor) and warm up slowly skating smoothly on flat/vert,
Check! I think if I added shoulder pads, I could then go to football practice lol.
: -learn to fall on your knee pads on the flat then on the curve, to slide with them
: -make large turns higher and higher on the ramp, make front/rear back and forth learn how to "pump" and gain speed

Working on it still. So pump is going down and up like you are about to jump, right? I guess before the transition go down, up, jump and spin 180?

: -when you turn on the curve, try to jump a bit and to catch your skate with your hands and to land a bit higher (don't have to success, just try)

Yeah, this one is slow. I think I'm OK now with not fearing falling off the ramp lol.

: Practicing few hours twice a week, you will learn fast and keep enough energy for the next sessions!!!!

How about almost everyday lol? I love to skate. I go unless my body is shot, I have to work an extra job, or this fall, have a night classes, ugh. Not looking forward to that one. So trying to skate as much as poss. now. During the week I only go an hour a day. I find if I start to get tired, I'm more likely to hurt myself.

: Have fun!!!

Thats EASY! I always have fun. :-D

: To help you, try to see some vids of my kids on
Hey, been watching them on and off at work. It helps! Thanks!! :-D
