It was awesome though, but yea, round in a circle for 30 minutes, trying not to hit into small children isn't much fun. Hitting into children is fun though. Especially if they cry.

Right.

Whatever you do, don't skate flat footed. If the blades are flat against the ice, you will just slip. You need to angle your feet as you move, just like rollerblading.

If I were you, I'd go around holding onto the side for a bit. Find you balance and technique. The try it 2ft away from the side for a bit until you are confident.

If you fall over, make sure you clench your fists. Don't leave your fingers spread out - unless you want them cut off by other skaters.

30 minutes?! I swear my few experiences have been over an hour.

I couldn't agree more, seriously. Then apologizing half heartedly and just going away.

Yeah, you can always hold onto the wall to balance and stop. Thats what I did.

It is just kinda like rollerskating, just more slippery. I'd advise wearing gloves and sticking very, very close to the walls until you get a little more confident. But don't worry, you'll fall over a lot either way.

If you wonna brake .. Just lift one of your feet, turn it 90° and drag it over the ice very gently
that should work

Only do that if you want a broken ankle.

To stop, turn both your feet at an angle

Like that is the only way I can describe it. Or just plough into the back of a fat person

Never skated on ice before?! As a canadian I find this odd, and hard to comprehend. I've been skating since I could walk.

My best advice is to find someone that knows how to skate to help you out on the ice. Keep your knees bent and your ankles locked, and make sure your skates are tied properly and tightly. As for stopping, it's one of the hardest things to learn aside from skating backwards IMO. The best way is to just bump into the wall/other skaters until you learn how to turn sideways and dig your skate in. As for actually moving, just watch other people do it. If you've ever rollerbladed, it's sort of like that only easier to fall over. Also, mh400 has it wrong. The easy way to stop is to go like this: / \ not \ /. If you do the latter, your legs are just gonna spread out and you'll fall on your ass and look like an idiot. Oh, and don't get hit in the throat with a skate either, unless you want to end up like Richard Zednik. Good luck TS!

I'm going ice skating with some friends later tonight.

Seriously, it's not that hard. You've just got to get used to balancing and moving with the skates on. If you fall then get up, brush yourself off, and move on. Don't worry, it happens to everyone.
