Anyways, I started refing when I was about 14 years old (now 26). I notice a big difference in my skating. it opened my eyes about skating and I started watching people who had been refing for years and notice most of them were really smooth skater. Also noticed that a lot of players in beer leagues I play in aren't as smooth as I am (though many are faster) (I figure I wouldn't be as agile though as I am right now and it helps as a defender)

My 0.02$ anyways

qft- tons of ppl can beat me in a race, but I'd say im a more fluid skater than 95% of the people i have played hockey with, and am more comfortable in skates than shoes.

keeep that stick at home until you are zipping around the rink
