Question Basic tricks to start with.

I've not skated for about 20 years (I'm 40 now), but have decided to start again, and have bought a pair of 33 TURBOs. Just wanted to learn a few tricks, so has anyone got any simple tricks I can start off with? I have a concrete half-pipe and a few small ramps that i can practice on. Any tips appreciated.

Thanks, Mike.

I don't know anything about aggressive inline skating, but if slalom skating interests you here's a good progression of moves:

I'm 43 and just started back on quads after a 35 year hiatus. A good trick for me is not falling!

Good luck and welcome back to the skate side.

Not Falling followed by Not Hurting for 2 to 3 weeks after you fall. I just don't bounce back like I did 45 years ago!
