Laura Stamm has a powerskating book out, it's pretty good. Obviously, a class would be best.

You want to start with short, choppy strides for the first 3 or 4 steps, like you're running on land. I've heard it described as "falling forward" sufficiently with your upper body that you must move your legs quickly or otherwise you would literally fall on your face.
