I was born in Vancouver, grew up in extreme Northern Michigan, live now in upstate NY. I grew up cross country skiing. I like winter sports, but the indoor ones like skating.
I would say I'd buy a killer pair of figure skates but I already has a swanktacular pair of Harlicks. Due to lucky circumstances, and an awesome skating teacher, I got them for a fraction of the $800-$1000 they normally go for. The boot is unbelievable.
I haven't tried skating since I broke my ankle; it's time to get back on the ice, and yes, I can jump. I don't have mad ups or anything, but I can do single jumps.
