Definatly get a pair of skates, as it's easially the most important piece of equipment you will own.

Ignore the cheap "beginner" skates (as they are almost as bad as rentals) and get something mid range. They'll allow you to flex them well enough to actually learn to skate properly on, as well as have enough support for legs that have a lot of muscle developlent still to come. I won't recommend a brand, because they all fit differently, so try on everything you can.
