I picked it up pretty quickly, ofcourse I regret not starting when I was young, but I have the competence to not completely embarrass myself out there now. I got some of my gear new ( helmet, gloves, elbow, jock ect ), and shoulder pads, pants and shins used. Sports junkies in Vancouver is good. I'm looking forward to joining a beer league team this fall. Definitely recommend spending as much time as you can skating before trying to actually play. It takes a lot of repetition and dedication as ice time is scarce and can get expensive. Good luck.
another option besides sports junkies is cheapskates on dunbar and 16th, they have a ton of cheap 2nd hand gear... get a few skates in before taking the big splurge on new expensive gears
