How easy would it be to get a pair of skates and teach myself to skate? I'm at no age to be taking a class. 26 to be exact and I've always wanted to learn to skate. Shoulda probably done it when I was younger but never did. So how easy would it be. My main issue would feel stupid in fron tof a bunch of people if I tried to go out at a free skate or something. Not really anywhere you can go for an outside rink like a bog or pond. I really like hockey and all and figure it would be cool to someday be able to shoot the puck around on skates.
