The novice skater falls 3-5 times on their first attempt

Your success in learning how to Inline Skate depends on how important you consider safety. 

Safety first to make sure you get the best experience possible. 

When ever venturing into inline skating it is best to try with safety in mind. Renting a helmet and safety pads is not difficult. If you can't rent please borrow. Based on our experience, the novice skater will fall 3-5 times on their first attempt to inline skate. For us it is easier to help you understand how to fall properly, on safety pads then get up straight away, than fall without pads, get hurt have to provide first aid and stop the learning process. Any which way it is your choice to use safety gear or not but in the end we all win if you choose to wear them.
