*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***

This announcement is to let everyone know that after hosting the SkateLog Forum and its predecessors for nearly 20 years, I have decided it is time to permanently turn the forum over to a new owner and administrator. I cannot think of anyone more suitable to take on that role than my SkateLog forum co-host, Florida skater Jessica Wright. I am pleased to announce that Jessica has agreed to establish and host a brand new skating forum, configured like the SkateLog Forum, but with a new name and a new Web Site. This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

NEW FORUM NAME: SkateDebate Forum
NEW WEB SITE: SkateDebate.com

Beginning Skaters Forum This is the place for beginning skaters to ask questions and share their stories. We would love to hear about your experiences learning to skate. No question is too dumb!

Default Books for Beginning Inline Skaters

Here are three instructional books written for those who are trying to teach themselves how to inline skate. These links all go to Amazon.com where you can buy the books or just learn more about them.

Get Rolling
A Beginner's Guide to Inline Skating

by Liz Miller

A Manual for Beginning to Intermediate Inline Skating

by William Nealy

The Complete Inline Skater
Basic and Advanced Techniques

by Joel Rappelfeld

Do you have any recommendations for or against any of these books, and do you know about any other good books for beginning inline skaters?

i've never bought any book on inline skate, kinda went out and started my own "trial and error" adventure...there were plenty errors, but i enjoyed the whole learning process

with informative, helpful forums like this one, im not sure why anyone would buy these books when they can learn online...i still remember the first book i saw at Blades Downtown (NYC) years ago, when i flipped through it, it had color pictures to show you how to perform "grass stop", i thought it was a gag gift at first...but soon realized it was not...but i just cant bring myself to pay $30 bucks for a color picture book to teach me how to go onto grass in order to stop, to each of his/her own i guess

At the very least you can have a sit down at your nearest Barnes and Nobles or Borders and read up a little.

Note: If you like the book then by all means, buy it!
