Naturally since I have skated since around age 5 I have a harder time on Inline Skates than I do on ice, I just recently purchased some RBK 4k inlines, (cheap and gives me a chance to do some dry land training) and also a Bauer Rocker chassis for them which I have not mounted yet, Anyway my problem with Inline is the constant edge as the previous poster mentioned, Ice and Inline are very similar in a straight line but turning, unless its a cross over is differant. One thing I can do is skate forward on Ice and then turn and while turning transition to skating backwards, which you cant really do on inline skates I have noticed ( almost fell when I tried). But you shouldn't have any real problems just learning that on Ice you have less limitations as far as turning and stopping, same concept differant surface just go out there and have fun dont be scared, it will come too you.
