*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***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

Slalom Cone Skating Forum Discussions about slalom cone skating, high-jump, and other freestyle trick skating. (Note that vert, street, and park skating discussions should be posted in our aggressive skating forum.)

Question How do you tie your skates?

I'm curious how everyone laces their skates...do you lace them all the way up? do you use two sets of laces ( one for the boot and one for the upper part etc..) i have heard some different things about this and wondering what everyone does

Everyone's different. My son went without laces all together and only used straps for a long time. I use wax laces because I like it tight at the bottom and loose at the top. What do you do? Also, what type of skates?

I do what this guys does. I got friction once on the tongue of my Seba Trix skates from lacing it the normal way and they went to hell faster after that. RIP. I don't want to put up with that again so I just tie it the way it was demonstrated here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D671VgevDcg

I suspect it's worse when you have an integrated liner. Non integrated liners don't seem to give me any trouble. A slider from Malaysia backed this up by tying his laces the same way. I didn't even mention the video to him.
