awkward beginnings lol?
Claudine, it will come in time. You are doing awesome for a beginner. It is a lot easier when you are 14 years old. I am guessing that because you can't bend you are standing straight up and that will cause you to lose balance. Don't worry, you will kick ass. Also, for some reason I have never been able to do high airs. I could flip front and back and do a McTwist, but once I got in the air the arms would flap.

: Don't worry spazz,I mean claudine,,I still do the windmill when I come unstuck.
: cheers joe
: : Well, I finally saw myself skate. I have airplane arms lol! Did others have flailing arms and such when they first started? Does body control come in time? Seems like most people here have been skating since they were wee ones. But if you started later, did you go through an awkward stage? I see why now I am not pumping higher on the ramps cause my form isnt good yet. I never really roller skated til a year ago and just started this summer so I guess I shouldnt expect gracee, but geez, its more like a roller spaz hahaha! Now I understand why I get so hungry after I skate. I'm really good at expending more energy then necessary. :-P
