I got mine last Wednesday, right before Thanksgiving so I was able to spend a bit of time on it (particularly with the unseasonably warm weather). It does take a bit of getting used to. So, I took the approach of trying to stand on it balanced with no movement and then pushed forward. Taking that approach got me started relatively quickly and within about 10 or 15 minutes of use I was able to just jump on and start riding. Turning took a bit more practice - I was riding up and down the street turning around at each end and I found that I was more unstable on left turns and it took more time to get around that way without jumping off than it did turning to the right (perhaps because my right side is stronger?). My daughter took this video on Thanksgiving day: www.youtube.com/watch?v=nmuyDtn930k
