My fascination with roller blades started after watching the movie Cutting Edge. I just got the nerve to try it out last 2008 and stopped first quarter of 2010. At first I rented the roller blades twice and when I chance upon a sale item, I immediately bought a pair!
Learning roller blades was not an easy endeavor especially if the process of learning is through YouTube videos instead of attending a formal training. :p It’s unconventional but that’s how I did it. I practiced the moves that I saw in YouTube at the grassy section of the East Coast Park (Singapore) near the beach. After I get the hang of it, that’s the time I moved to the cemented path.
Falling and colliding with kids cycling scared the hell out of me. I feel ecstatic though when I managed to glide 0.5 kilometer without a glitch. It’s both terrifiying and exhilarating experience!
In the process, I accumulated several souvenir scars. Good thing the bruises disappeared or else I would look like a human punching bag. -_- It’s been quite sometime since I used my roller blades. I need to get accustomed to it again before I can glide on my own. I hope I can find someone who can teach me the correct moves.
Until then! Aja! :p
