SKATELOG DOT COM: Web Site | Blog | Facebook |    


*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***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

Default Double post - my apologies - please delete..

Hey All,

My name is Lino Micheli. Live in Toronto, Canada. Been trolling the site for info and finally have an account so here i go. Have learned a lot from all of you. Thanks for the great information.

Recently took up skating. I think the last time I had skates on I was maybe 12 years old. I'm 51 now so quite a hiatus. Started with a pair of Chaya Park Skates. Spent a bit of time on those on an outdoor rink getting comfortable on them and managed a few basic skills. Crossovers, backward skating, mohawk turns, and backward crossovers. Started lessons about three months ago at Scooters Roller Palace working mostly on waltz exercises. Kinda tough, not gonna lie. Circles over and over....
Decided it was time for a more appropriate style of skate for what I was doing at the rink so found these. Before and after pics included. Not sure if Flickr is the way to go for photos so hoping someone can try the link or offer an opinion.


Older Riedells. Not sure about the model. Would love some insight if anyone has an idea. Sure grip classic plates, weber wheels (now team roller bones). All new king pins and cushions and am just getting used to them.
