3 Tips for Becoming a Better Skater
- Take a class. If you’re serious about this skating business, there’s no better way to improve. At a skating lesson, you get personal tips from the pros. Sign up for beginner, intermediate, or advanced skate lessons at Chester Skateland. You’ll even get free admission to the next session so you can practice.
- Balance. Speed, tricks, and maneuverability all depend on having excellent balance. How can you improve your skating balance? Once you have it down with two feet firmly planted, practice skating on one foot. Raise one skate to your ankle. As your balance improves, raise your skate higher and higher. Switch legs and balance on the other side. It’s best to start out near the wall in case you need extra support. If you’re worried about falling, practice stationary balancing drills before hitting the rink.
- Whip out your phone. There are plenty of advanced skaters out there sharing tips on how to improve your skating. Sit back and soak up the knowledge! Trying to master a new trick? Have a friend video your moves. You’ll be able to see which parts look great, and which parts need more practice.
