    Might be a problem with rentals, but it wouldn't hurt to check. Buying skates, you might need an EE width (widest). But it is always best to try them on before buying. Which sucks because there is a lack of options in the country. You can get at the rinks, and that's about it, and they don't refresh their stock all that often.

    I actually ended up getting ones a little too narrow for my feet, but I know some lacing tricks. I spend about 2 hours getting them right at home over the weekend, and have torn off patches of skin on my fingers tightening them up. Next investment, waxed laces!

    If you don't fall, you're not learning anything, so props on ya for that! Get up and try again. Of course, let the bleeding stop first...

    There was blood on the ice on the weekend. Not sure who's though.

    That doesn't sound very sanitary. Or smart... but hey, I'd be doing stupid things if I had food on my brain too!

    Last time I went to a rink they only had number 12's. I need at least a 15 or better a 16. I was told by the rink that they don't make those sizes. Not the first time I've heard that said about shoes I want.

    Eish, ya... Most standard skates max out at 13s. If you were in Canada, you could get a reasonably priced custom pair (still a bit more than standards, would need more material for example), but ask any of the rinks here and they'll just look confused.

    They can't even sharpen hockey skates properly here. They're supposed to have a grove, but they grind them flat. I'm not impressed. I'm sure they have the right equipment, they just don't know how to use it, or they're trying to save cost on grinding stones... (probably both)

    Heck, there were puddles/slush on the ice this weekend, so maybe they're also trying to reduce that. I'm going to ask them if I bring my own grind stone, and pay the sharpening fee, if I can do it myself.

    Still, I'm just happy to be skating again
