2nd Annual Cyber Ice Skating Sale has begun

Tarpon Springs, FL / November 28, 2011 — The 2nd annual Cyber Ice Skating Sale began this week at IceSkatingWorld.com and runs for seven days, ending on Saturday, December 3rd. The Cyber Skating Sale features discounts on the entire line of products in the IceSkatingWorld Pro Shop, from figure skating accessories to dresses and ice skates.

“Everyone talks about Black Friday and Cyber Monday,” explained Marta Nilsen, managing partner since 2000. “But we had never seen an online sale devoted specifically to figure skaters. Our clientele isn’t looking for a deal on the latest flat-screen television. They want savings on items they use in their skating every day.”

IceSkatingWorld LLC has been serving the ice skating community since 2000 by providing resources for figure skaters, parents, coaches and skating fans. In 2004 an online pro shop was added, offering merchandise from the leading manufacturers within the figure skating industry. Items from the online Pro Shop include protective gel pads, off-ice training tools, dresses, skates, the 2012 skating calendar and more. The products ship worldwide.

New figure skates for novice iceskater

Q. I’ve been skating for 6 months and would like to get my first pair of skates. Where should I go and what do I need to know in advance?

A. Congratulations! First, if you have a private lesson instructor, you should discuss with him or her which boots and blades they prefer for your skill level. Next, go to a reputable dealer who have several brands of boots for you to try. Everyone is different, and it is important to find the right boot for your type of foot! Finally, the “break-in” period for new boots ranges greatly. You may experience soreness, pain and possibly blisters for the first few times you use your new boots. This is normal. Good luck!
