Use a back stop to take off. Lean yourself and the uni much further forward than you expect then step up to the other pedal and accelerate the uni quickly. You need to get past going slow because that is an advanced skill.

Try to find a place with thick soft grass on smooth ground with a very slight downhill.
Many of these tips I have read and juggled around in my brain as I have been practicing. The ones I haven't tried yet I quoted above for my own reference and future possibilities to consider. Thanks!
