To begin skating you need to have some basic equipment:
There are many sites where you can find new or used skates to begin your training with. Make sure that they are in fact roller skates (quad skates) and not inlines. Remember that some wheels are made for indoors-training and some for outdoors. It’s not wrong or bad to use indoor-wheels outside or vice versa, but it can require more effort on your part.
