Is anyone else here goofy footed, but right foot dominant?

Skating Reddit - 18 hours 52 min ago

To clarify, I surf and skate left foot back, but kick a ball with my right foot, will put my right foot forward if im pushed from behind and will kick with my front (right) foot when im skating.

Why is this?

The Spongebob Movie is just a metaphor for education

Skating Reddit - Thu, 05/24/2018 - 22:59

It starts at the scene where Mindy have to encourage Spongebob and Patrick. She's telling them all these things about men, and gives them these arbitrary pieces of seaweed that signifies them "being men" now. The seaweed is a metaphor for their diploma. It makes Spongebob and Patrick think that they "can do anything", and take on the world. So they go through the trench, skating by with their mustaches and here comes reality. Dennis. He is a metaphor for college graduates. his "real mustache" is a metaphor for a college diploma.

This was inspired by coming home from graduation, seeing the Spongebob movie on TV, putting it on and being at the "now that we're men" song, which by the way is way too fitting for graduation night.

Ha anyone ever skated dc shoes

Skating Reddit - Thu, 05/24/2018 - 18:44

I know i should've been skating suede shoes instead of canvas, but they advertised it as re enforced canvas so i figuered what the hell. I litterally skated for an hour or 2 but by the time i was finnished with my sesh the shoes already had holes in them i was definately dissapointed. The worst part was when i took them off, the shoe lace on my left shoe just broke off clean, its like what the actual fuck, my converse lasted longer than that and the canvas on that is way shittyer. Any opinions?

Advise on buying rollerskates?

Skating Reddit - Thu, 05/24/2018 - 18:43

Sorry I know you guys must get this question a lot but do any of you have any advice on buying rollerskates?

I used to have a pair and then 'moved on' to inline skates as a teenager. However I wasn't very good and had a really bad fall which turned me off from ever inline skating again. I've got a friend now who likes to inline skate however so he was begging me to go with him sometime, since he doesn't know anyone else who wants to. He recommended I go back to rollerskates since I don't want inline skates anymore. For now I'm going to rent a pair but I would consider buying some again if things go well.

It would be for outside but since I don't know how often I'll actually use them I don't want to spend loads of money. When browsing I found a lot of beginners vs regular rollerskates. What's the difference? I was never a great skater so I have no idea what I should go for or which I used to have.

Then there's this and this. If I remember correctly I had a pair of the latter as a kid with loads of straps and they went pretty high up. The style of the first pair is what I really prefer visually though. Are the straps important for extra support? Is it better if the skates go higher up my leg?

I live in London and we plan on going skating in a park (not a skatepark, a regular park) so there won't be a lot of hills and probably too many people to really get any speed anyway. I've also never been able or interested in doing any tricks.

So if anybody has got any advise it would be much appreciated, thanks in advance!

Btw if anybody knows of any good places to do some skating in London let me know. I used to skate down the sidewalk when I lived abroad but the UK sidewalks are appealing and way to uneven to even attempt it.

Anyone know of "terrace" style places to skate for a newbie?

Skating Reddit - Thu, 05/24/2018 - 16:53

Hey all, I lookes through posts and couldn't quite find the answer I was looking for. I am a new skater and I just recently learned how to ollie consistently even while moving. I now have some free time and would love to find a skate friendly spot to try. I don't want to go to the park in Lakewood as I feel there is too much going on for me, and the indoor chenga is a bit too much. I love skating and will skate anywhere, but who knows of some hiddem gems?

Seba FR1 80 uses?

Skating Reddit - Thu, 05/24/2018 - 16:35

I've been snooping around lately on the wide variety of uses it can have ranges from freestyle, urban, and slalom skating. I'm interested in trying slalom skating and I know I'd probably be better off getting the Seba High Light Carbons instead of FR1. However, I'm unsure if I should just get the FR1 first to use get back into skating again. If the price for the high light carbon was more affordable I'd probably get it, but the FR1's are the closest to best there is at the moment.

In terms of flexibility, Weight, control, comfort, and durability, how does the FR1 fare?
Compared to the FR1, are the High Light Carbon's a lot better for freestyle, urban, and slalom skating?

Beginner Ice Hockey Player who wants to Begin Roller Hockey Questions.

Skating Reddit - Thu, 05/24/2018 - 16:13

So about 4 months ago I brought a pair of Tour Inline Hockey skates with 78A wheels, I got a free CCM ABS blade stick and I brought a green biscuit to learn hockey with. I replaced the 78 wheels with 82 Red stars so I can use them outdoors.

I was going to play roller hockey first to learn the game then switch to Ice later on but I got a better paying job with a better paying schedule (2 days off in a row), so I brought Ice gear, started going to the stick and pucks and eventually joined the beginner Ice league. Also the nearest Ice Rink is only a half hour away while the nearest roller rink that has roller hockey is an hour away.

Recently at the Ice stick and puck I meet some guys from my college who also play roller. They let me know that in the fall they are reforming the roller hockey club team and wanted me to know if I want to join. (They said it folded a few years ago due to lack of players but this year we should have 8 to 12 skaters and maybe 2 goalies).

They also invited to come play pick up and practice at the outdoor rink in the next town over and told me to join the local indoor roller league for the summer to gain experience, while counting to play ice. (They play both in the same week at high levels).

Some questions I have should I "rocker" my Tour skates with the outdoor wheels? I put them on the other day to use them on my drive way. After 3 months of Ice skating I felt like I couldn't turn in my roller hockey skates. It was as if my rest of body wanted to but my feet physically couldn't.

The skates have four 76mm wheels on them. A lot of old forum posts from 10 years ago say to rocker skates use 76-80-80-76. Since my skates are all 76 should I do 72-76-76-72?

Also for indoor skates should I use the same boot as my Ice skate will that make the transition easier? At my Ice rinks pro shop on the Bauer skate lab I was measured as a size 9.5 with the Vapors being the best fit. I use Vapor X500s for my Ice skates. Should I buy Vapor X500s for roller? Also I see that Bauer skates have a Hi-Lo chassis. What is the advantage of a Hi-Lo chassis?

Also for sport court can I use an Ice stick indoors or does it have to be ABS? I have that CCM ABS stick for concrete but use a Bauer Vapor X900 and a Warrior Covert QR4 for Ice. Can I buy a Bauer X600 and use it on sport court or will it break?

Looking for some advice on ollieing and trying to overcome my subconscious.

Skating Reddit - Thu, 05/24/2018 - 15:57

I've been technically skating since last September, so I'm good at cruising and the like, but I haven't been legitimately practing since like the beginning of this month. The only thing is, I find myself to be mentally unable to attempt an Ollie on solid ground. Now, I'm not particularly afraid of falling ofc of a skateboard, I've hit my fair share of pebbles and I don't really care if I land on my butt trying to Ollie. But I don't know. I just feel really weird.

Is this something I should just try to force myself to do? Should I try intentionally falling? I think the best thing to do would just be to go as hard as I can and then what happens next happens. But are there any tips that helped you guys overcome this? Thanks.

Daily Prospect Thread: Left Winger Grigori Denisenko of Loko Yarsolavl (MHL)

Skating Reddit - Thu, 05/24/2018 - 15:43

Physicals: 5'10" (179 cm) and 165 lbs (75 kg)

Team GP G A Pts PIM +/- Loko MHL 31 9 13 22 30 8 Loko Playoffs 12 5 2 7 8 2 Lokomotiv KHL Playoffs 4 0 0 0 6 -2 Russia WJAC 4 1 3 4 17 N/A

Central Scouting: #7 European Skater

Bob McKenzie: #21 (Jan 26), T-#15 (Apr 27)

Craig Button: #14

39alaska39: #15

Some of you may be wondering why I am doing a prospect that is rated as a mid-first round talent, that Detroit seemingly has little chance to draft. The answer lies with Klim Kostin. Denisenko is a prospect that I find myself very torn on. On one hand, he has the potential to be this year’s Kostin, albeit in a smaller frame. When St. Louis took Kostin last year, it was acknowledged that he was a great player who slipped in the draft because of a shoulder injury, but after the WJC this past year, his stock has gone through the roof. Denisenko could be that kind of player for me. He didn't have an injury, but other factors which are discussed below, may affect him come draft day. From a purely statistical point, he’s got 9G and 13A in 31GP which isn't exceptional, but the MHL isn't a terrible league either. Another good skater, he has good awareness in the offensive zone as well as strong back checking ability because of his skating. He is really really fluid when he skates, I like watching him play and he seems like the kind of player that could be an absolute home run. He's a little bit of a drifter in the defensive zone, so he would require some coaching to get his zones better and figure out how to maintain his side once he gets back to the zone. He doesn’t have an elite shot, but he is strong on his feet and on the puck. He will need to bulk up more in terms of muscle, which will only improve his already good strength, but hopefully it won't come at the expensive of great skating. I would love to see him get to Kucherov's size, about 180lbs an I think that would do him well with his overall smaller stature.

I'm going to get a little speculative here. Denisenko is a Russian born, Russian player playing in Russia for the same team since he was 14. Denisenko's NHL arrival guess? Up in the air. The risk with drafting Russian players has almost come back from the Berlin Wall days when you weren't sure if they would ever come over because of political reasons, now, the NHL has potentially backed themselves into a corner with the fiasco that was the Olympics with Russia Pavel Datsyuk and Friends the Olympic Athletes from Russia winning Gold. Things may change in the next four years, but that thought has to be in the back of a lot of hockey players' heads. If you want to represent your country at the Olympics, the NHL isn't a place to do that right now. Denisenko, as far as I know, hasn't said anything that would indicate that he wouldn't come over, but that thought will be considered and likely will be asked about during pre-draft interviews. Any team that takes him will have done their due diligence, but I wouldn't be totally shocked to see him slip from the teens to the late 20s by the time the first round is over.

think i might be getting bumped off my team with no lower level available how to deal with this?

Skating Reddit - Thu, 05/24/2018 - 15:20

classically i joined a team at my closest rink that is an hour away i attend practice as much as work will let me and attend skate at a closer curling rink to try and improve my skating but i think i might have plateaued as far as my skating goes. with no stick and puck sessions available to me practice is the only time i get to improve actual stick skills.

my team got relegated down a league at the annual tournament this year and it was brought up that a meeting that we might have to let players go if they aren't showing signs of improvement, given ive been there two years now i think i could be one of the first to go.

it comes down tho that this is basically my only hobby rest of the time is spent infront of a computer or at work on nightshifts (a reason im not the most regular at practice as it conflicts with training times) due to anxiety about meeting new ppl. with no lower level to drop down to and unlikelyness of me being able to justify the time spent skating this would probably be the end of me playing ice hockey, the idea of witch has me quite depressed.

bassically asking for any advice if you've had similar experiences and how you delt with them thank you

Society's expectations v

Skating Reddit - Thu, 05/24/2018 - 15:15

You hear about the “unreasonable” expectations put upon teenage girls by society but there’s also a lot of expectations put upon us teenage boys. Not so much based upon appearance and body image like they are with girls. On the guys side, it’s more so centralized about sharing our emotions and what sports we do and what jobs we have. Personally, I’m a pretty sensitive guy and I do get pretty sad sometimes, but the difference in between me and other guys is that they keep their feelings all bottled up inside themselves. It’s almost like they think they’re gonna be judged. There’s this really stupid idea that guys can get their “Mancards” revoked. I don’t see why talking about feelings and stuff makes you less of a man. A real man wouldn’t be afraid to share his emotions, but that being said, society doesn’t make it any easier to talk about that stuff. It’s definitely hard to start talking about that but trust me, once you do it’s like a massive weight just got lifted off of your chest. As for sports and activities that you choose to do, yeah some are more popular around the female population but that means nothing. In grade 6 I chose to play the flute over playing any other instrument and yeah I did get made fun of, but I was the best flute in the grade and eventually the school. I did stop playing the flute this year but only because it got boring. If a hobby or job is perceived as feminine, don’t let that dictate whether or not you pursue it. If you’re good at it, the fact that it’s feminine shouldn’t stop you from doing it. Look at Patrick Chan for example. Should he stop figure skating because of a dumb social thing? Look at how many olympic medals he has and then tell me with a straight face that figure skating is for girls. I mean, it’s for both genders, but you know what I mean.

You can Sword-Skate on your warlock in Escalation Protocol with the Hive sword

Skating Reddit - Thu, 05/24/2018 - 14:58

Same as always, jump, use your sword swipe and then jump again to activate your glide.

If going uphill, activate your glide before using your sword swipe to not shortstop on the terrain.
