Buying Skates

If you don’t have skates, you can hire inline or roller skates (quads) from us when you come to our discos or classes. 

We sell skates through this site/via email and some are listed on Trade Me under Skatescool Tauranga as we had so much trouble finding decent skates to buy in NZ.

If you hesitate between Inline and Quads, here is what we think. A skater is a skater – Once you can skate it doesn’t matter what you wear – they are all equally enjoyable as long as they are good quality and it’s your personal choice. Often skaters like to have a different pair for all occasions! And skating is quite addictive - we warn you now!

Generally you want to consider: The shoe must be comfortable, we recommend laces rather than the bindings that can become brittle and break, unlike laces which you can easily replace. The bearings must be of good quality too, there are different ratings based on the ABEC Scale (from 1 to 11 the higher the better) but also bear in mind the quality of the steel used, which is also important. The wheels are made of polyurethane and their hardness is measured on the A scale (78A-97A -the higher the harder the wheel). Softer wheels are more grippy. Diameters vary from 59mm to 125mm (the bigger the wheel the faster it can go but you compromise on maneuverability).

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions or wish to order a pair. We can also order in most things if you have a special request so please don't hesitate to ask!

We have many more styles - Visit us in store at 2 Roxanne Place, Tauranga to view.
