Skating Questions

Hey guys I'v been a hockey fan for as long as I can remember but I have recently started playing. I just picked up my first inline skates (live in Georgia so...) got the Bauer rx:05 and when I first started my back was hurtin but I started bending my knees more and fixed it but now my ankles are hurting and I can't keep my laces tightened any suggestions on how to fix my problems. I figure waxed laces will help them stay tightened

Could just be a fitness issue. When I first started skating, my ankles would hurt after skating.
I found that after about 6 months of skating on a regular basis (2-3 times a week for an hour or 2 each time) that my ankles got stronger and it was no longer an issue.

For your skate laces check this article stop skate laces from coming untied

It's almost as if it was written for you!

I've got the same skates and love 'em. I use wax laces and it's perfect. Get a skate lacing tool so you can tighten them even better. For added stability, I wrap these thick velcro straps around my ankles. My boots are on for the entire game.
