New Skates!

Skated to downtown and picked up a falafel sandwitch and ate at the pier near the Christopher Street.

Finally my new skates, ordered in the end of April, have arrived. The reason for delay was the boots that were special order.
This is my first 100's.

I went out to west side path for a test run. They are great! It runs so smooth, unbelievably nice. No wonder everybody goes to 100's. Boots need some adjustment for ankle area, which was highly expected. I will do heat molding when I have time.

I am extremely happy with my 100's.

Brooklyn Greenway / Rockaway Skate

Met at the subway station of Sheepshead Bay at 11:00 and skate along the shoreline through Sheepshead Bay, Manhattan Beach, Plumb Beach and Rockaway/Breezy Point.

The skate ended at one of the fellow skater's house for a BBQ at his pool.

Perfect weather, perfect route and perfect fellow skaters.
