Yeah, I always hear the kids, "I go through x amount of skates every season."

A wet skate that never dries will sap the life out of it in no time, which is the case with many young guys who are skating 4, 5, 6 times a week tear through skates. It's not your amazing skating skills.

Use basic techniques to take care of your boot, and it'll last you many times as long.
