One reason why I LOVE 2020 (yep, you read that correctly) is the fact that roller skating has made a comeback, is better than ever, and is A Thing™️ all the cool people are doing. If this is shocking news to you, then let me get you up to speed. In these last few months, people have been posting videos of them roller skating on TikTok and Instagram. And no, not just any videos—super soothing and vibe-y ones!

After watching a handful of these videos, there’s no way you’d wanna hop on the trend. I guarantee it. So if you’re wanting to learn the basics of how to do the roller skating thang, the very talented Oumi Janta collaborated with us to show you how to be an expert on ze wheels.

Before you try and do all the tricks while you’re on your skates, the first thing you must have down, per Oumi’s professional insight, is your body position. This means: Making a “V” with your feet, bending your knees, lean forward, shift your body one way, and bounce. Obviously, easier said than done, but practice this so you get acclimated to it!

And because we always keep it real here, there def might be times where you stumble and fall. Totally normal! You gucci!! Oumi’s got just the solve for that that’s totally seamless and trouble-free. Watch more to also see how to smoothly ~roll~ forward and backward.
