Step 2: Put on safety gear and skates Put on your safety gear and skates. Tip Make sure that your helmet fits snugly on your head. There should be no play in the chin strap.

Step 5: Push Push toward the ground with your opposite foot. Step 6: Alternate Push with your dominant foot while bringing your other foot forward. Repeat this process continually. Step 7: Practice braking Gently push back on one of your heels to brake. Tip If your rear brake fails, simply drag one of your skates on its side. This will slow you down in a hurry. Step 8: Practice Practice skating and stopping until you're comfortable. Pretty soon you'll be ready for the open road. Did You Know?
