Hey Im a new member cool forum!
I played inline hockey as a kid a just got back into it few weeks ago. I need help diagnosing a problem. Im 25 years old and about 205lbs. I purchased pretty much the cheapest skates could find. Thor Tour 909 here is a link.
I put new rink rat wheels on the skate.
When I start my games I can skate ok but as the games go on and I get more tired I can barely move especially when I go from stop to trying to gain speed quickly what happens is my ankles just bend inwards and its hard for me to get moving I usually stumble a bit. I look ridiculous. Now stamina and endurance is no doubt a problem and that is something I am working on, but could part of the problem be that my skates are not stiff enough and of low quality, im a pretty big guy so do I need a stiffer skate, is that why my ankles are bending inward? I really did not know anything about skate stiffness when I made the purchase. Can someone confirm this or am i just out shape and suck at skating.
Thanks for any help
