    This was the best video instruction! Before watching your video I couldn't do anything on my skates other than hold and move by holding onto anything really. After this video I could move unassisted. It was great. Great exercise. Thank you.

    I grew up roller skating all the way into my very early 40s we would get together on the adult night and go skate I am 45 now in the groups kind of fizzled out but we were like a big family. The skating rink shut down probably about a year and a half ago and it just feels like it’s the end of an era. Semoran Skateway. We had universal skating where I grew up going to when I was small throughout my teens but it has a new name now. I used to know the owner and her daughter pretty good. Anyway I enjoyed your video I thought that was really cool I still have my Rydell 595 the boot. It’s the one that doesn’t have the Velcro. Laser wheels the whole 9 yards. Thanks so much for posting this you did a great job I think.

    Great instructions with a bit of funny remarks. Love this. I seen a women roller derby when I was 10. It was so interesting that I stood at the entrance & watched but this elder woman came and paid for me to go in to watch.since then I been wanting to learn how to skate for the longest 😭. This definitely helped!

    This is brilliant. Coming back to skating after 30 years. Had both knees replaced but wanted to be able to join my husband, kids and grandkids when we all skate at weekends. You explained it so well, I will try and remember everything the next time we go 😃.

    I sent this to my fiance, because I'm hoping to get him trying to learn how to skate with me. 😀 He has bad experiences with skates, and I'm hoping to help him gain some good ones and build some confidence in the idea of skating in a rink with me someday. 🙂

    I can't thank you enuff! Your videos taught me how to skate! I have wanted to roller skate since I was a child. I was given roller blades for x-mas one year (with no direction what so ever), wore them once and gave up. People starting out: Pay close attention on what NOT to do first. Don't start with roller blades, watch ALL the videos, then go do it! Oh and Music helps a lot! It only took me 2 days and 2 falls! Nothing serious, and as they say; The fear of falling is worse then the actual fall! Thanks DDH! Your my hero! Thank You Thank You Thank You!!!!! Hell On Wheels

    Hello, new subscriber here…I have been wanting to skate all my life and just brought my first pair of skates (at 44). I just have a couple of questions. The immediate feeling once I start to roll is that my feet want to roll right out ahead while my body is lagging behind, like I'm tipping backwards. I'm practicing on smooth concrete in my garage. I feel like I've dropped my hips and have my chin up, shoulders straight.. I think my snack zone is pretty weak from all the snacking and not a whole lot of moving. Is the core the problem area when there's the feeling of tipping back? Also, I did a great stop (didn't fall) but for a good second there I thought I'd go right over the front of my toes. I'm very tense about the sensation of such quick changes in balance, too. Is this normal beginner stuff? Thank you for your video, it looks so fun, it really makes me want to keep at it.

    Gosh you make it look so effortless. I’ve been contemplating learning how to skate… haven’t been on wheels since childhood. I feel it’s low impact exercise. Thanks to your video, I’m gonna be on it like blue bonnet!!! Thanks for being so genuine and entertaining. You’re the best, doll!!! Oh and I’m in Hemet but I’ll have to make my way to your establishment one of these days. Keep the vids coming for us beginners. Hugs!!!
