I'm new to the skating scene but I have picked up fast. I started on Monday and I can do single and double snow plough stop, skating on each leg seperately and with my right foot I can hold my left leg out straight and go in circles on the right foot (not sure what that is called) and I can just about perfect a bunny hop and those fish thigs. the fish things I can do really really fast :-)
I'm 18 and I take figure skating privately with my coach one on one. I have my own skates (Ripsports RF4's) and I'm so proud of them.
I practice every week day Monday-Friday for 3 and a half hours. This may sound extreme for a begginer but I have plans to work my way really far as far to the top as I can go. 18 I have been told is not too old if I put my heart into it, and I'm a very quick learner. I do ballet which helps with strength and I have wonderful balance so I'm hoping I'll get there.
Any advice or anyone else who knows I you can get far at my age?
Anyway you all seem really cool so just introuducing myself, feel free to add me or whatever! :-)
PS - I'm from the UK (London) and my name is Rebecca :-)
