Advice for new skaters?
Never give up. If you fall, gag that little voice in your head that says you can't do it and come back stronger. Some things take time, but they WILL come. This is advice comes in super handy when trying to nail 27/5 or transitions.
If you think you're low enough, you're definitely not. Get lower!
Always have fun and remember to laugh at yourself :)
Anything else to tell us?
Anyone can play this sport. People of all ages, sizes and fitness can play. Fitness can improve. Sizes can be worked to each individual's advantage. I know a few grandmothers who are amazing players. All you need is the drive to want it.
