Thanks for posting in the Skate Coach Cafe forum, and welcome to our great and FUN sport!
Learning how to inline skate is not difficult, but you can put yourself at unnecessary risk while you're learning if you don't follow some basic rules. The first column in the Skate Coach series sets out these guidelines:
On the second page of the column, there's also a link to a listing of certified inline skating instructors. A certified instructor can safely guide you through the learning stages and help you get started without forming bad habits that are difficult to un-learn later.
If you have specific questions that aren't addressed by any of the info in the Inline Planet Beginner's section, or if there aren't any certified instructors in your area, feel free to post your questions here!
