One skate lesson goes a long way
in helping you use your heel brake. Two lessons are even better. However,
for the best instruction available, consider joining Camp
A Camp Rollerblade Weekend offers 12 hours of skill-building designed
to teach new skaters how to brake, stride forward, turn, and more.
