From pure beginner to slalom

Hi,

Just bought my first pair of skates yesterday with the intention of learning to slalom, due to massive amounts of boredom resulting from ORD. Also because I've seen people skating around Bukit Panjang, and it looks cool.

Bought a white Freestyle NTX from Hvper cos I thought it looked clone trooper-ish.

I'm a pure beginner, just managed to learn how to skate about and turn abit on first day.
Still can't stop, unless theres a skill called "wall stop", then I'm awesome at it.

Got a few questions.

1) When I T-stop, the skate at the back seems to just "dig" into the ground, and instead of slowly decelerating, I kind of jam brake and fly forward. How is it done?

2) When can one start learning slalom, especially since I'm an absolute beginner.

3) Are those any good resources (e.g. books/ websites) to guide me through learning to slalom, cos I can't figure out how the heck people even do the fish, my skates seem rooted when i try to turn like that...

Thanks

Observe other people doing salom that way u can try to learn a few moves from them and best is go up front and ask them how do they do it.

Re: From pure beginner to slalom

Oh ya, going to china at end of the year.

Is it advisable to get skates there?
E.g.
Seba : http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=9375443467
Freestyle :http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=5989547613

I've heard skates are way cheaper there, but worried about counterfeits and poor quality...
Or should i just spam cones and wheels?
