4 Tips for Maintaining Roller-Skates

If you’re an avid skater, roller-skates are a great investment. You can choose your favorite skate style, customize your skates for skating sports, and save money on skate rentals. But with great skates comes great responsibility. Do you know how to maintain your roller-skates? You can extend the life of your skates with just a few simple tricks.

How to Maintain Roller-Skates

  1. inline skating outsideClean them up. Dirt can erode your boot, trucks, bearings, and wheels, wearing out your roller-skates faster. Keep the boot clean and dry, wiping away excess moisture if they get wet from sweat or spills. Let your boots dry naturally in a well ventilated area. Clean your bearings and wheels to keep things rolling smoothly.
  2. Tighten your trucks. While more advanced skaters may loosen their trucks to improve maneuverability, most skaters should make sure their trucks stay tight to the boot. Unsecured trucks can be dangerous, so ask a pro if you’re not sure what to look for.
  3. Touch your toes. Some skates have adjustable toe stops. Skaters can experiment to find the right toe stop position. For non-adjustable trucks, check them occasionally to make sure the toe stop stays tight to the boot.
  4. Spin your wheels. If they’re slow or catch mid-spin, there’s likely a dirt build up. Clean your wheels and they’ll be as good as new. If your wheels are worn or marked with divots, replace them before they cause a problem. Nobody wants a pile up on the skating floor!

Looking for a new pair of wheels? Check out our roller-skate buy guide. Then swing by Skate World Center and ask about our options!

Skate Your Way to a Successful New Year

happy boy with cakeChristmas may be over, but there’s still plenty to look forward to! At Skate World Center, there’s no end to the fun. And what better ways to achieve your New Year’s resolutions than to make them feel like play? Accomplish your family New Year’s resolutions in 2017 at your favorite Tallahassee skating center.

4 New Year’s Resolutions for Families

  1. Get in shape. For some getting in shape means working off those Christmas cookies. For others it simply means leading a healthy, active lifestyle. Roller-skating helps both kids and adults stay active and get in shape. It works your legs and glutes, strengthens your core, and can even burn up to 600 calories in an hour. According the American Heart Association, it’s one of the top exercises for heart health. And it’s easier to stick with fun activities than boring workouts. If you’re not convinced yet, look at it this way: it beats going to the gym!
  2. Save money. Unlike many family activities, roller-skating comes with a small price tag. Skate all day for under $10. Pinching pennies after the holiday season? Monday Mania Skate is just $2 per skater for 4 ½ hours of fun!
  3. Spend more time with family. Kids can learn to roller-skate before they’re old enough to start Kindergarten. And skating is like riding a bike: once you learn, you never forget. That’s why skating is also a great choice for spending quality time with grandparents. They won’t have to wait on the sidelines while the kids play!
  4. Try something new. Who’s ready for 2017? Celebrate with us at the Noon Year’s Eve Balloon Drop Kids Skate Party. We’re gearing up for big fun, including a 4pm balloon drop with prizes.

These are just a few of the New Year’s resolutions Skate World Center can help you achieve. Ready for a fresh start? Take the family roller-skating in 2017.
