5 Mistakes Beginner Skaters Make

VL skate outlines the five mistakes beginners make when trying to land new tricks and how to avoid them! The first two are not fully learning the trick and moving on too fast. These two go hand in hand! Muscle memory is the most important thing when getting a new move down. You can try it 100 times and land it 20 times out of that but without creating the proper muscle memory, you won’t be able to retain the trick. The third mistake outlined in this video is losing motivation. It can be discouraging to try something over and over again and not get it, but you can always move onto a different trick and come back to the one you are stuck on another day! The fourth mistake is getting burnt out. If you feel yourself getting tired or frustrated-take a break! The fifth mistake is comparing yourself to others. The only person you should compare progress with is yourself!
