Re: Park skating in Bristol

We have some slalom cones at Withywood, we bought them for BRD to use when testing min skills but they never get used I don't think. If someone from the league wants to use them (but be responsible for bringing them back ;)) I don't see an issue with lending them out. We have 10...if anyone wants to...

I had to return a pair with ankle pads as they didn't fit in my skates so make sure to check this first. They should fit in bonts or similar I think but won't in my riedell 495's x

Re: Shin guards

I've seen some US skaters use full knee and shin guards like they use in ice hockey too: https://demonxtreme.com/section.php/1227/1/hockey-knee-shin-guards-all-brands I am pretty sure roller hockey players wear them under their socks but their knee pads seem smaller than ours tend to be which must h...

Re: Helmet replacement

I hit my head really hard on the floor this weekend and thought straight away that I am gonna have to replace my helmet. Luckily I didn't have a concussion, my helmet is newish and this was its first major impact. I don't really want to dispose of it but as my brain is more important I am going to.....

Re: Shin guards

I have some small hardshell football ones your welcome to try/have I feel like robocop and they make your legs really sweaty. They do the trick though protection is great and they are cheap. Personally I think hardshell are the most suited as we are dealing mainly with wheels to shins. They have to ...

Re: Tell me about your plates?

I skate on 15 degree Revenge plates. I love my plates they were a revelation after skating on nylon plates, I could suddenly do things and feel in control of my feet. I have played alot with cushions and trucks to get them more responsive and improve carving. I would like to be better at quick stops...

Re: Is my mouthguard moulded too tight?

I had that before with my mouthguard, it felt like my teeth had to move back into position after wearing it. Mine was too tight cause in the moulding process I was sucking on it to much (this sounds awful haha). Anyway, when I mould mine now I make sure its not as tight but still snug enough and I'v...
