Depends. If you have time to get out to a rink and skate then don't worry about roller blading. If you don't, well, any skating is better than no skating. The thing to remember though is that on roller blades, the edge is about 5 times bigger and you can't stop.
Yeah i've been playing inline hockey for about 5 months now and am just now getting the stop it's hard to learn but not impossible but very difficult with inlines because you realley don't have that friction and can't really dig in.
