*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***

This announcement is to let everyone know that after hosting the SkateLog Forum and its predecessors for nearly 20 years, I have decided it is time to permanently turn the forum over to a new owner and administrator. I cannot think of anyone more suitable to take on that role than my SkateLog forum co-host, Florida skater Jessica Wright. I am pleased to announce that Jessica has agreed to establish and host a brand new skating forum, configured like the SkateLog Forum, but with a new name and a new Web Site. This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

NEW FORUM NAME: SkateDebate Forum
NEW WEB SITE: SkateDebate.com

Beginning Skaters Forum This is the place for beginning skaters to ask questions and share their stories. We would love to hear about your experiences learning to skate. No question is too dumb!

Last time I checked, Kathie's website contained lots of info about skating in it's different forms (not to mention these forums).

London Skaters seems to be informative too. I didn't know a damn thing about inline skating. I just knew that I wanted to buy a pair. One of the ways I learned was cruising the net for long periods of time (how I usually learn about lots of things actually) and asking questions on these forums. Everyone is very anxious to help out it seems.

Just don't post 10 questions at one time over different sections. That just shows NO class in my opinion.

- Tutorials for Beginning Inline Skaters
- Diary of a Beginning Marathon Skater
- Speed Skating for Beginners
- All About Skate Wheels - by Anthony Chen

I hope that helps!
