Beginning to Roll

Sure Grip Roller SkateYou’ve been skating with Playland Skate Center for several months now and you just can’t get enough. You’ve finally decided that it’s time for you to invest in your very own pair of roller skates! Or – you are a parent who’s child has become what we lovingly like to call a “rink rat” and they are begging for a pair of skates of their own. Playland Skate Center has some tips that you should keep in mind when trying to buy the perfect roller skate for a beginner skater. 

Don’t Buy Top of the Line

It’s true – if you are just getting into roller skating, we’d love for you to buy the best of the best, but in reality, you need to buy and try all different types of equipment before you decide what’s best for you. Also, as a beginner skater, you’ll need to spend the biggest part of your investment on protective gear, wheels, and bearings.

Upgrade the Right Aspects of Your Skates

If you are trying to buy skates for you or a family member that are ready to roll out of the box, you’re going to have a little bit of a harder time. The best thing to do is buy a boot that works for you and fits, then upgrade to the nicer wheels and bearings. First impressions are everything. You want to be sure that the skate glides smoothly and doesn’t want to turn to one side or the other. Nicer quality bearings and wheels is where you’re going to create the most comfortable skate for you.
