*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***

This announcement is to let everyone know that after hosting the SkateLog Forum and its predecessors for nearly 20 years, I have decided it is time to permanently turn the forum over to a new owner and administrator. I cannot think of anyone more suitable to take on that role than my SkateLog forum co-host, Florida skater Jessica Wright. I am pleased to announce that Jessica has agreed to establish and host a brand new skating forum, configured like the SkateLog Forum, but with a new name and a new Web Site. This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

NEW FORUM NAME: SkateDebate Forum
NEW WEB SITE: SkateDebate.com

Beginning Skaters Forum This is the place for beginning skaters to ask questions and share their stories. We would love to hear about your experiences learning to skate. No question is too dumb!

Default Intro and thoughts on a new pair of skates I ordered

Hi! I just turned 44 and recently got back into skating with my 8 yr old.
As a kid, I skated at the local rink every single week. I skate very well forwards and backwards, but thats about it. I have been speed skating and having fun at the local rink the past month.
Finally just purchased a pair of skates since the rentals barely have any insoles, and want to save money instead of renting.
I figure for my first indoor skate I didnt need leather. I was going to go with Sure Grip Fame or Riedell Angel. I went with the Angel, but they didnt arrive yet. Any thoughts on these???
I guess in the future I can always upgrade to better wheels? They are just the rivas.
I actually was skating really well on the rentals, I hope these will be comparable. My rink rentals are the Sure grip brand, beige with usual orange wheels.
My skates should be arriving soon! Excited!
