Roller skating with Dean, I've got some questions

I had originally wanted to rollerblade with Dean, but it's been too many years to count since I've been on them, and I have a wonky foot that didn't like the lack of stability the single line of wheels offered. So I hope roller skates go better.
Dean is only 11 months old, so I have a bit of time to get myself used to them before we go out and do anything, and even then I don't think we are gonna go fast lol
But I am wondering if anyone else here does outdoor roller skating with their dogs? How did it go? What were some issues you ran in to? And what kind of harness did you use? Did you have them beside you, or pulling you, and did it make a difference in what kind of harness you bought?
when did you start your dog? I have heard everything from 5 months to 3 years. I was also wondering if we could start earlier if we only did less than a mile with him on sand, or walking next to me while I went slow and tried not to fall on my face or rear lol
I plan on getting him into biking later on too, but I figure roller skates are going to be easier to take to shows when we go, so I have a way to burn off his extra energy.
