You walk on the ice then "freeze" you forgot to take your skate guards of. You try and take them off, but your too late. You fall over and everyone laughs at you. I'm here to teach you tips and tricks so that doesn't happen.
In skating you need the right equipment, you need skates (obviously). When you buy new skates you buy the blade, ( the sharp thing on the bottom ) and the boot ( where you put your foot in) separately. Or you could go to a used equipment store like "play it again sports". You should wear tight clothes so they don't get in your way. Your clothes should be comfortable to move in. In a show or competition, you need a skating costume a girls dress will be very short. They come in many styles, and colors.
There are also, skate guards. Guards are hard plastic that go over your blade so you don't ruin your skates. When you are wearing guards put them in the same place and check if they are there before you go on the ice, then you won't fall (like I did... Many times). There are also, soft guards. You can't walk in soft guards but they will protect your skates when your not in them. Guards come in all different colors and patterns (mine are pink and purple striped). You'll also need skating tights. Skating tights are very think but look thin. they come in white, ballet pink, and suntan.
You need to put your skates in something, zuca bags are perfect. Zuca bags are designed to fit your skates and equipment. Zuca bags are usually about $250. My Zuca bag has a black frame and blue triangles on the cover. Zuca bags are like a suitcase they also have light up wheels.
