My preference is wood then plastic over wood then concrete then any sort of "sport court". Asphalt belongs outside.

Unfortunately I have yet to skate a completely level concrete floor. The little swales and rises can catch a wheel and cause a fall. Until the rink in Somerset got a wood floor there was one place I fell most every time I visited. Hard falls, sucked...

I used to carry several sets of wheels but my Scotts 95-97 Super Ds handle anything thrown at them. So much easier, and I have flips so changing is easy. But I don't need to!

No wrist guards? That is the number one injury I see. Knees, elbows and butts don't shatter like wrists.

Common wisdom is anything but...
