Hey everyone.

I’m pretty new to skating (been skating for around 6 months). I have two lessons a week and get in as much practice as I can around that!

I’ve just got some new boots- my old ones where second hand and I was definitely in need of something new.

I feel like I’m back to where I started in them though. I’ve gone from Mystiques (comfy!!) to Risport (blades feel better but ouch) as I went to get fitted at a shop and these where the best match.

But damn do they hurt! I’m managing around a half hour on the ice then I need to get off and un lace.

I know there’s a breaking in period but I’m wondering if I’m not lacing right? I’ve always laced my skates up as tight as I can get them but I’m struggling with the new skates when doing this.

Do you have any tips on getting through the breaking in period && how is the best way to have your skates tied?

Also, Alina Zagitova did 6 2A in row!

When did Zhenya even train this, being in shows all summer long? Such a shame there's usually no one in the audience to film FOI... Major props to Zhenya for constantly trying to improve herself and doing her thing amidst all the pressure from the Russian juniors one after the other turning senior!

Hi everyone, I am in Aussie Skate School and I can not seem to get the hang of my backwards one-foot glide. I always end up gliding on a curve rather than straight. Any tips to help this? my coach said to lift my hip more but I don't think it helped that much.

Currently I’m in group lessons that take about 2 months per session. At the end you either “graduate” into the next level or stay. There’s only one other person in my class but I feel like I’m holding them back because I always need lots of corrections while they already know all the skills. How long do you think it would take to move past the level? The only jumps I need to learn for it are waltz, toe, and salchow. I just can’t get anything to click and I don’t want to be stuck in it forever. The way the coach talks about it makes it seem as if it’s an easy level to pass quickly, so am I just a slow learner?

I know Zagitova is sponsored by Puma and Medvedeva by Nike but what other skaters are sponsored by big brands like these?

But if so, my young kids spent a few minutes peeking in the windows near the playground today and really enjoyed watching you all skate today! Sorry if that's creepy, lol.

Are there any summer camps in Europe for people of all ages, instead of "kids of all ages"? :P I hope someone on here knows something...
