How to Ice Skate

Learn how to ice skate with our easy tutorial you will find below.

First off, you need good skates — probably the best beginner ice skates you can afford. But good entry-level ice skates aren’t always cheap. The good news is you can always learn to ice skate on rental ice skates.

Slide into the boots and have your heels as far back into the boot as possible. At that point, hold the tongue and gently pull it up. Next, tuck the tongue on either side of the foot. Then, start pulling the laces, beginning at the second set/pair of laces.
