I've gotten really comfortable on rollerblades so I felt ready to try transitions and work up to a 180 jump. On one run, I built up WAY too much speed, tripped during the jump and fell like the overconfident queen I am.
After the fall, I realized a few things:
- Wearing all the protective gear is important when trying new tricks. I had elbow pads with me but didn't wear them which led me to...
- Gonna need scar cream and vitamin E to fade this cute new spot on my elbow
- Learn how to fall safely
You will fall when skating. Period. It's important to know how to fall without seriously hurting yourself. I found a bunch of falling tutorials. YouTube is basically my skate school.
Are you new to skating, too? Hit me up on IG and tell me how it's going! @CatalinaOnAir
