self taught skating. is it possible?

Hello i have this sudden interest to learn inline skating. and hope to get into aggressive inline.

And I learn that I need to invest in the skate itself and protective gear.

I have no experience in extreme sport and this includes inline skating.

Is it possible to self teach myself to skate by looking thru vids in youtube and such?

Is there any sgclub members who is self taught in inline skating?care to share your experience.

EDIT:just found out that a friend of mine used to be a roller hockey player.he said he could to teach me once in a while.so i'll be partially trained by some-one and self taught.

Anyway,can anyone recommend me skates for beginner with a budget of $150 - $200.? should i get the recreational ones or straight to aggressive skates?


thanks =)

Re: self taught skating. is it possible?

yup i learn it myself, as beginner start from a gentle slope so that u would have to move less, because balancing of your legs is important as a start when you need to twist and turn later.

Re: self taught skating. is it possible?

hahaz my mum taught me how to skate and she herself cant skate and hv no experience watsoeva. So its entirely possible to self learn wif someone assisting you that is. as for the skates it would be good to buy a regular skates first as u hv no experience in skating. get comfortable wif skating by learning the basics like simple sliding, backward skating T-brake and etc. once you are confident then change to aggressive.

Re: self taught skating. is it possible?

hmm, or you can get aggro skates with freestyle frames 1st, when you master your basics, then change to aggro frames ...

its the most cost effective way, although not the best ...
