Default New skates for sessions

Just picked these up yesterday so I'm having to re-learn how to skate! Airwalks with Century NTS plates and fiberglass wheels. Significantly different from the Riedell Boost boots I have but I'm picking it up quickly. Working on the sliding tricks now.

Very interesting skate setup. A lot of folks in Cincy, Dayton, and Columbus use set ups like that. Never skated in Cali, but I wonder if your skate style is similar to theirs.

Yow!
Crazy wheels....
I'd seen those before in some threads about the Cerritos (I think it was) rink. There was also a video of someone doing "the helicopter", rotating kind of slowly, both skates on the floor, just kind of drifting along.

Are those the wheels custom made/lathed by someone in LA?
I couldn't see how different they really were in the earlier images.
I'd guess you'd need a wood floor to really make use of them.
Thanks for posting.

The two rinks I attend primarily have this type of setup but with nicer shoes. I've been to a few other rinks in the area, but it's really only Chino and Cerritos where this is common.

You are correct! In Cerritos on Tuesday and Thursday nights you'll wheels even smaller than these. People doing amazing turns and slides all over the place. I would love to the helicopter but it would take a different type of fiberglass wheel I believe.
As for the wheels I bought them from a friend of mine but I know that they can purchased in this size and can be lathed down smaller. And wood is definitely the preferred medium for the floor. I've had some success on a coated concrete floor, but it felt strange.
