Love it!

I just got some skates for Christmas and after many many years, I’m re learning and sharing one of my favorite childhood past times with my daughters. Your podcasts are perfect for my daily commute. I have enjoyed them all so far. Keep them coming please!

Awesome podcast, very informative

After two sessions on a skate rink with my two daughters I felt like ratatouille when the judge ate the dish and the memories from his childhood came rolling on back to him. As soon as I stepped into the rink with quad skates I totally remembered the feeling of freedom it used to give me when skating. Is so much fun.

And then the fact that both my daughters loved it and got interested sent me into “research mode” and started looking for info so I can do a conscious buy of skates.

The podcast has been really helpful in getting helpful info and know hoy to sort the technicalities of making your skates work for your style of skating.

I’m definitely going to keep listening and will recommend it out to friends.

Side note: I actually live very close from where Jeff used to skate but we actually went to skate rink in Lewisville, TX

Great skating information

I am so happy to have found this podcast. It is SO informative and fun to listen to. I love listening to all the information about roller skating products and all technical side of things and I specially love when they talk about ways to get people on skates by teaching us how to teach people how to skate or learning about how to form clubs and organizations in our communities to get people on skates. I can’t wait to listen to the episode where they talk about opening and owning a roller skate rink and hopefully even how to open and maintain a roller skate shop. how to put a small town close minded community on skates and how to get people to purchase skate and just everything that owning a successful roller skate shop entails. Thank you so much for this podcast and I genuinely look forward to hearing new episodes! Thank you
