Default Hello From Toronto. 1st post (and it's a double post, sorry admins)

Hey All,

My name is Lino Micheli. Live in Toronto, Canada. Been trolling the site for info and finally have an account so here i go. Have learned a lot from all of you. Thanks for the great information.

Recently took up skating. I think the last time I had skates on I was maybe 12 years old. I'm 51 now so quite a hiatus. Started with a pair of Chaya Park Skates. Spent a bit of time on those on an outdoor rink getting comfortable on them and managed a few basic skills. Crossovers, backward skating, mohawk turns, and backward crossovers. Started lessons about three months ago at Scooters Roller Palace working mostly on waltz exercises. Kinda tough, not gonna lie. Circles over and over....
Decided it was time for a more appropriate style of skate for what I was doing at the rink so found these. Before and after pics included. Not sure if Flickr is the way to go for photos so hoping someone can try the link or offer an opinion.

Older Riedells. Not sure about the model. Would love some insight if anyone has an idea. Sure grip classic plates, weber wheels (now team roller bones). All new king pins and cushions and am just getting used to them.
