Figure Skating Clothing
Figure Skating Dresses
These stretchy pants are very popular with intermediate and advanced skaters. They give you the freedom to streth into a high spiral or Bielmann spin and protect you a bit when you fall on you jumps.
The Zuca Bag
This is the most popular skating bag on the planet. Why didn't I invent these??? Every rink we go to I see a line of Zuca bags in the hallway.
This is actually in my opinion a more practical way to get your skates and other equipment to and from the rink. Before the Zuca came along I would see the typical carry on style suitcases lined up in the hall.
