    It's More Than Just Skating In a Circle

    People don't realize that there is more to skating rinks nowadays than it used to be... It's not just skating in one big circle. haha well more like an oval. But, seriously some of the best dancers I've seen have been on a set of skates instead of a pair of sneakers. Some of the...

    As soon as I learned how to walk,

    I was on skates. I miss going skating so much and since we are not stateside anymore, it has been quite awhile since I have been. I know I would go every single weekend, if I was back there. its just so fun to dance on skates, listen to the music, etc. My dad has been a floor...

    I actually suck at it.

    It took me forever to learn to go on for a while without falling. The first time I tried it, it was because of a lesson in my school. I fell like 38579824 times and all my classmates were making fun of me, because I was the most excited about skating and then I was the one who...

    Rollerblade Heaven

     Hi fellow skaters, I first learnt to roller skate on those very old fashioned roller skates which you put under your shoes and slide the front and back up to accommodate for your shoe size.  The bearings were terrible and as  I lived in the country there were no...

    Wish my children could have the roller skating

    experience I had growing up. It was so wonderful. Great memories! Alas, listening to my 80s skating memories playlist on spotify is as close as I will get to reliving it.

    At One Time...

    I could skate backwards and skate every which way but loose. I'm not in the shape I used to be, or in the practice I was, but if there's a skating rink close, I know every weekend like I used to be, I'll be out there, I was in great shape and had a lot of fun. I used to take...

    Woot For Roller Skating

    I wish there were roller skating arenas in my area. It makes me sad. I used to have a pair that I would skate around my house in. But that was when I lived in a big house and now I don't have them. I want to get some again, but I don't know where I could use them. It makes me sad...

    I Miss Skating For Funsies

    I love roller skating. I wish I could find a good pair of skates (not in-line skates) and hit the road. I just don't know where to look because the places I have looked don't carry them. Then, there aren't any roller rinks where I live and that is a real bummer. There are...

    There really is nothing like roller skating around the rink and feeling the air brush through your hair.  Plus, it is good excercise and safer than a motorcycle.  I wish more adults enjoyed it.  There is a rink near our house that has adult night from 9-12.  I...
