    thank you very much
    Do something well= do it in a good way.
    Be good= be successful, or able to do something well.
    So which one is correct? Can you answer your own question?

    No. You do/skate well(adverb). You are good (adjective) at something.

    thanks.
    It is understandable but does not sound too natural to me.
    Try to say:
    Are good at skating?
    Do you have good skating skills?
