  1. Thanks for your replies. Yep i'm definitely getting an instructor. I already experienced how the ''we can show you!'' thing can work a couple years ago. I'm going to Tatry mountains. krisdrum I cannot quite understand... if the boots eliminate the ankle, then how can you bend your knees actually? Sorry i was never in ski boots. IPv6Freely Cool idea. I think you should add skateboard.
  2. Hello! I'm going skiing with my friends in two weeks for the first time. Will i have any advantages as a hockey player? To any of you, who learned skiing as adults too, how long did it take you to learn the hockey stop on skis?
  3. Hello! Anyone following hockey in Germany? I'm heading to Stuttgart and Offenburg next month and wanted to catch a game or two. What team would you recommend to go and watch? Anything within close driving distance would be great, but i can go for a longer ride, if it's worth it.
  4. I bought them in January. I think the 1 year mark is for the holder, not steel, but i'll email them anyway.
  5. Hello! I just cracked the steel in one skate in my supremes 190. Do i need to replace it in both skates, or just in one and the sharpener can match them for me? Any other steel except of LS3 that goes with this holder? I have a very small boot size and it's hard to get in my area.
  6. The rbks are so beautiful! Without the green accents those would be perfect looking skates
  7. Is there any stick on the market that: - is in the 55-65 flex range - has very little to no grip on it (!!) - is 53'' to 54'' long - doesn't break the bank Anything softer seems too whippy/is too short. Anything more seems too hard. I like to cut my sticks below the chin and absolutely hate anything grippy. I'm 62kg/170cm Most of the sticks i can find are either way too tacky or would become too hard after cuting down (65 flex ones, 57'') I borrowed a 60 flex 30k Ribcor from a friend and it seemed almost perfect, except for the shaft being super sticky. Would buying the 30K and getting somehow rid of the grip be an option or i would just destroy a new stick? Any other solutions?
  8. Thanks, but i've seen those episodes already, found also a few others on yt. But i've read there's more to it than that and i'm looking to find the whole series somewhere, if it's even possible
  9. I've seen a few episodes of the series on cbc digital archives, but Wikipedia says that over 100 of them were recorded. Anyone knows if i can watch or buy them anywhere? Google doesn't seem to help. I absolutely love watching anything oldschool. Also, if anyone knows any similar series, please write them down :D
  10. http://www.amazon.com/Hillbilly-protective-gear-2704-Pad-Impact/dp/B002UHXY8Gone of the girls at my rink wears exactly those under her pants. She had her tailbone broken a few times before wearing them and says they're super protective
  11. @Chadd yes, the heel sits all the way back on this picture. I tried to go half size down and my toes were lightly curling inside the boot. @Vet88 it's impossible, the pencil just hits my foot Thanks for the insightful answers. Whatever i go on the web or just ask around the rink everyone seems so obsessed about getting the smallest skate size possible that i started to question my own. up for the second question!
  12. I''ll be in the market for new inline skates in a few weeks since i don't like the way my Vapor fit me. Looking at my foot on the footbed, do you think i could go 0.5 size down? My heel doesn't lift in the current boot, but i was told you should opt for the smallest size possible. How small is already too small? Should i opt to squish my foot into a smaller boot or i'm fine as long as the heel doesn't lift? Also, how to tell if the skates are too stiff while trying them on in the shop? I've got 280 JetSpeeds for ice and many people tell me it's plenty of a skate for someone my size (62kg/170cm), but i can't notice anything negative? I can get my knee over the toecap of the skate without any pain or lace bite. What would be some other possible signs of a skate being too stiff?
  13. I've been in a similar situation when i first started and blamed the hollow in the beggining too. Also not a heavy skater 62kg/170cm, tried different hollows, currently 5/8. In my case it was more a technique than equipment problem. My edge work was terrible and upper body wasn't synchronizing with the legs. Trying to do a shit ton of edge drills, filming myself and getting feedback from better skaters helped a lot. Try some c-cuts, figure 8, crossunders, etc, there are really many skating drills on youtube. You could also do some exercises off the ice. I like squats, lateral lunges, single leg romanian deadlifts, core stability exercises like the deadbug and rows - getting stronger helps a lot with hockey and you will look better too! :)
