Hi, I’m Tim Phang. I’m 23 years old. I’ve been skating for about 12 years. I’m from Arlington, Virginia which is right
outside of Washington, D.C. I’m now sponsored by Universal Skate Design,
and I’m going to be talking to you about rollerblading. Turning is one of the most basic parts about
rollerblading. There’s basically two ways to do it: you can
either shift your weight to the right or to the left or also use the crossover technique. If you want to turn to the left you are going
to shift your weight to the left and that’s going to send you in that direction, when
you want to turn right you’ll shift your weight towards the right. If you need to gain speed quickly use the
crossover method or if you need to turn sharply. As it’s a more effective means of moving in
one direction or the other. You’re going to need to turn every time you
go skating so it’s something you should learn very, very, early and you definitely want
to have it mastered before you try coming to a skate park and try doing tricks. As soon as you start learning to skate backwards
you should also learn to turn while going backwards. And again when you’re going backwards you
can either lean or use the crossover technique.

    The actual 'information' in these videos are pretty crap. Saying 'learning to turn is important' is NOT helpful…I KNOW its important!! You mention the cross-over method…EXPLAIN IT. Don't just say its useful, that does not help me.

    Started skating last week and I start to understand is that in order to turn, you need to put your right leg forward and you will begin to turn to the left. Almost no one said that when watching the tutorials here on YT, shift your weight, bend your ankles, etc etc, wrong, put one leg forward and you start to turn naturally.
