Crash shorts - recommendations?

I need to buy a pair as I'm planning to hit the skatepark! My lower hip/upper thigh keep smashing to the floor and bruising badly. I'll probably start falling on my bun again too when I get my new fw mounted skates. Having wide hip but narrow waist causes trouble when I shop for trousers. So, what d...

Re: Hockey Stops vs. Power Slides

For me a 'hockey stop' means the stop I'd do on ice [hockey] skates, feet fairly close together and both sideways, using both feet , like this (add. the 'artistic' style that Chick mentioned): http://spoilershockey.sagenmedia.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/03/Heath.jpg If I use my front foot mainly and...

Re: Retired London Rollergirl in Bristol- selling gear!

I need wrist guards, my own are falling to pieces. And would love that skate tool that has the 'pipe' (the one in the photo nearer the blue toe guards). Maybe you could give these to one of the other skaters who are buying stuff and they could give them to me at practice :-) ?

Re: Atom Wheels Trak-Atak

Some of us have experienced problems with the atom wheels chunking off at the edges. reckless are not meant to do this so last longer as made of different urethane. It's common. I asked about it from Tush & Marc (Neon Skates) and they said it doesn't really matter. I understand though people wa...

Re: Anyone know about Vanilla skates?

I looked into these at some point and here's a selection of comments from Skatelog forum which I'd saved: Vanilla I love my Vanillas. My Vanilla curves feel wider to me than my Vanilla brass knuckles. I like em both a lot. If you have flat fred flintsone feet Vanilla might be a good choice. My son h...

Re: SK8 Heaven info pack - help?

Bring toothpaste and skates! Bring an umbrella (I've been trying to "think laterally" why this is so important). Bring warm clothes (I asked about this and they said it's aimed at foreigners so I think PK, you and me should pack some.) Bring 4 scrimmage tops (2 white, 2 black). I will brin...

Re: Protech Dent mouth guards

I don't like mine. It hurts my teeth. It's hard plastic. I've remoulded it like 15 times... :-( It shrinks a lot when it cools down and really clings onto my teeth and presses them. I spoke to some skaters last weekend, many had similar experiences. BUT some people really like it.

Re: Wheel information

I have new wheels now! Juke 2.0 95A+93A :-) Until now I've been skating with the red Tuners 92A that came with my skates. They started feeling a bit bulky and I was clipping my wheels often. I wanted to go narrower. I tried other skaters' different wheels to see what I'd like - Juke 2.0, Fugitive mi...
