Worth learning from scratch and how?

I'm not a skateboarder, I'm not a snowboarder. Will I ever be able to learn riding a Onewheel and where would I start from if I owned one? Anybody organising training anywhere? Thanks!

my dad worked out how to do it - he doesnt do board sports - needed a bit of a hand at first but is ok at the moment

Never skateboarded, never snowboarded, and I get around everywhere on my Onewheel. It's like an extension of my legs. If you are in Miami, I'd be happy to show you how its done, but you should just order one and enjoy.

Yeah you don't need to have done those things. Its helps yes but you can learn regardless. The only people I would recommend against it are people that are accident prone, people who are stupid and take unnecessary risks, and people who are out of shape. @forzabucks @giacecco

It's easier than you think and you can learn on your own, no lessons required. The one thing to keep in mind is never to ride above your comfort zone.

@giacecco My dad is 65, and he has never done any board sports. Within 15 min he was tearing it up.

@giacecco I think we have all types of background on the forum, but this does a nice job stepping through the basics along with various "absolutely, positively do not do XYZ" types of guidance. http://community.rideonewheel.com/topic/256/newbie-real-world-beginners-manual
