We are Figure Skaters ourselves and have tested our own blade sharpening for maximum performance. We understand the frustration of common sharpening issues such as unleveled edges and inconsistent hollow. Only Olympic level sharpening machines are used!
There are lots of misconceptions about blade sharpening being some kind of secret art that only a few will ever master. That is simply not true. As long as the blades are sharpened according to specification, correct ROH and using the quality machinery and equipment for Figure Skating Blades; it should be consistent across all Technicians.
There are a few ways to have us sharpen your Skates:
- Drop off at Avondale/Botany Paradice Ice Rink Reception:
- Avondale: Drop off at Rink Reception before Wednesday afternoon and pick up from Friday.
- Botany: Drop off at Rink Reception before Monday noon and pickup from Tuesday afternoon.
- Avondale skaters can also leave skates at rink reception for sharpening, sharpening will be done by the respected coach Gordon Rushton.
Once dropped off, please let us know by emailing [email protected] or via Live chat.
If you are from outside Auckland, please send your Skates to us for sharpening. Sharpening is $10 for Skates purchased from us and $15 otherwise. Book a sharpening session.
If Westgate is not too far away, come over to our home shop and get it done on the spot. Simply booking a time here.
