skate,bearing, and wheel reviews by other rollergirls:
most of the websites selling skates, wheels, and bearings will also give you more information on what kind of equipment is best for you based upon the surface you will be skating on. searching the roller_girls group is also easy and will turn up scores of results.
- remember skates are in men's sizes. they'll usually be 1 to 1.5 sizes smaller than your shoe size.
- buy toe guards! we do tons of falling drills and suicides and they will save your boots!
have skates you really, really love? or really, really hate? please post comments about your skates (pros, cons, how long you've been using them, etc).
