I used to love rollerblading - I even did a stage show in the early nineties where I had to wear a pair around in front of a 16 ft drop into the orchestra pit. I still have a pair up in the wardrobe somewhere...
I reckon it's more like ice skating than roller skating - much harder than roller skating and a totally different movement. Good luck! I'm sure you'll enjoy it
and as someone else said, make sure you have the right safety gear - elbow, wrist and knee pads and a helmet, too, just in case. I used to stick a pillow down my pants when I was learning new tricks cos I fell over so much. ouch!
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...
