"Pauloh, I will be racing Chicagoland and NSIM for sure this year.  I am one of the Rainbo guys, I think I'm the only one that races with a Contour helmet camera on the team.  I wear glasses and Bong skates.  I would say look for…"

"No..Donnybrook. Sadly, this part of California has the weather to skate all year round, but no trails. The one I used was never something to brag about, but now it is atrocious. Basically, one has to slow down to jump over cracks, some slabs present…"

"We just did Vegas last month, it was good.  I focused on indoor, got 2x firsts and a third, and had some fun outdoor.  My son did both and got a couple 3rd place finishes outdoor. Next weekend is "The Battle in Seattle", which…"

Mr. T replied to theDonnybrook's discussion 2015 Season
"I am afraid that my skating days are on hold. The only trail where I was able to train has deteriorated so much that it is almost impossible to skate any more.  Hence no train = no races as I am not going to spend $,000's just to play the…"

"It were not for custom boots, I would have never been able to skate except in some "middle of the road" fitness skates at best. It is amazing to me how weird high-end boots are constructed around a generic notion of average foot. I do not…"

"I wasn't the one that said the inside of the boot had the problem, the repair shop clerk did. I tried 3-4 sizes before ending up with the one I have. Thanks for the sock advice."

Andrew Zysk replied to DynV Montrealer's discussion Skating equipment to go on--bad--roads
"The right size is the most important factor. For me size 9 is to small, size 10 too slippery. Your toe should touch the tip of the boot but not pressing it. For added comfort I wear merino socks from Icebreaker or Soucony and sometimes the ezeefit.…"

"I bought a pair of Rollerblade Tempest 110 not long after this thread was created as I got 30% end-of-season rebate. I have 2 complaints about them so far: The inside of the shell are uneven so the shop had to put pads on the rugged parts as it was…"

"I own 2 pairs of Rollerblade Tempest 110 (keep one in Canada, Toronto and one in Europe, Poland, Gdansk) and 1 pair of GTM 110. The tempest 110 is the most comfortable boot I have ever been using. I remember rolling from Niagara Falls to…"

"The ironic thing, Chris is that I wasn't seeking more control. I was perfectly happy with my Z's other than a metatarsal issue that was becoming intolerable on my right foot. I was hoping for relief. Even after a long layoff the pain…"

pauloh1 replied to Eric Smyth's discussion Noob cramp
"I'm sorry this response is so delayed. I use electrolytes to prevent cramping. My favorites are a capsule made by Saltstick and Enduralytes made by Hammer Nutrition. You will probably never cramp again if you take these prior to your shorter…"

Credit where is credit is due

  I wanted to bring to everyones attention a fantastic resource available to us all and relatively affordable to most.  My name is Paul. I started skating last March and I am completely hooked. Several of you on this forum have provided me with very useful information in the past and now it's my turn to share some with you. I recently received my custom Bont Vaypors. I was cast by Adam Bradley of Adams Inline. I flew to Minnesota from RI in November. I had no faith in doing this on my own. Adam…See More
