There are two main suppliers in Auckland.
Specialist Skating Limited Skaters Edge
Both suppliers are excellent to work with and we recommend that you contact them both to see their range of boots, blades, and skating apparel. When starting out you will most likely use a very standard blade, however as you progress through the grades or move into ice dance or synchronized skating, you may decide to use a blade that different to the figure skaters.
As the boots and blades (known as figure skates) are pricey we recommend that you take good care of them by using and skate guards (plastic covers on your blades) when walking around the rink and once you have taken your boots off your feet, dried your blades, put on blade soakers which are fabric protectors designed for soaking up any moisture off your blades once you have dried them.
If you are over in Australia and Sydney specifically, pop into the Canterbury Olympic Ice Rink and visit Margaret at her shop – she has a close association with figure skaters in New Zealand and has been helping them with various supplies for years!!
