How do I know what skate equipment to purchase?

The best way is to reach out to someone who does the type of skating you want to do. The more people you can talk to the better. Ask them what equipment they use and why. Most importantly ask them what equipment they started with. Feel free to reach out under our posts when you see the type of skating you like. Also utilize our skater database. We will use the database to connect skaters and instructors in similar areas as they become available, and when it is safe to do so.
