FAQ : About Skate Lessons

Check out some of the most common asked questions here. It may answer your questions or help you to have better understanding.

Q1: Why do I need skate lessons, I can learn on my own, right?

A1: This is one recreational activity that you definitely do not want to learn on your own. Learning on your own will only lead to bad habits and unsafe skating. Even worse than teaching yourself, is to have a friend teach you who also taught themselves. My advice is to take professional lessons from the beginning and then practices what you learn on your own, this is the only real path to becoming a good all round safe skater.

Q2: What should I bring to my first skate lesson?

A2: Inline skate with a brake fitted, a full set of safety pads protecting your knees, elbows and wrists. No safety pads, no class. Please also take the Indonesia sun seriously, skate classes are a lot of fun but they are also very tough workout. Bring water, wear a cap and use sunscreen. Children under 14 must wear a helmet.

Q3: I’m a complete beginner, how hard will it be?

A3: It’s very challenging sport to learn, it’s a lot of fun too and the 2 hours class will fly by. Come prepared and take the classes seriously.
