Skate Care Tips:


We cannot stress enough how important it is to air out your skates. Many boots have leather soles and if they are not allowed to dry the soles will rot. This will lead to your screws stripping and the soles turning black. To air out yours skates remove them from your bag, open up the boots and pull the insoles out. This is important to do after each ice session


Just like your boots it is important to dry your blades after each ice session. Use a skate towel or chamois to dry the blades and plate attached to the boot. Place soft covers on your skates. When you are walking in your skates before you are on the ice use hard guards to protect your blades from debris on the floor. But it is important to not store your blades on the hard guards. Moisture often gets trapped in the hard guards and if left on your blades for long periods the moisture will cause your blades to rust. 

Sharpening FAQ:

How often should I get my skates sharpening?

This can be a very personal question. It really can depend on how sharp you like your blades to feel on the ice. A general rule of thumb would be anywhere between 20-30 hours of ice time. If you lose an edge or get a nick in the blade you would need them sharpened sooner. Remember to always wear your hard guards when you are not on the ice to help avoid with getting those nicks.

What is the difference between a free skate, dance and combo sharpening?

A free skate sharpening is the most common hollow for most skaters. A combo sharpening is what we suggest fro beginner and recreational skaters. There is a less pronounced edge which will provide these skaters with more glide. The dance sharpening is a deeper hollow providing less glide but allows skaters to cut the ice better when making edges, ideal for ice dancers.
