My best suggestion would be to take a few skating lessons at your local rink. I don't know about you, but I can't learn something like skating by reading advice on a forum. I have to see someone do it in real life. An instructor can see what you may be doing wrong, and show you the correct way.

Plus, lots and lots of practice!!
