Commencing Skate Product Reviews

I have begun writing reviews of new products at Skate-Parts.Com and Runaway Skate as a way to help customers better understand the products they are considering and make an informed decision. From the feedback I have received I believe that this is especially important for roller skates and inline skates as these are a product most people expect to be able to use for quite a time. This would be followed by wheels for skates and boards.

To kick it off, I’ve put together two reviews so far, one for each site, both on roller skates.┬áInitial further reviews are going to be focused on roller skates, inline skates, longboards, wheels and trucks. We’ll go from there and see what happens!

The reviews use slightly different formats with different appearances.

You can check them out at:

  • Crazy Skates VXi Review on Skate-Parts.Com – HERE.
  • RD Roller Derby M4 Viper Skates Review on Runaway Skate – HERE.

I’m interested to see how it goes and what the feedback is from customers.

Runaway Skate is now open

One of our newest and most exciting initiatives is now open as of today, Runaway Skate.

Runaway Skate is a retail skate shop located at Shop 4, 385 Oxley Dr, Runaway Bay, QLD 4216. It has a broad focus on every skate related including: skateboards, longboards, roller skates, inline skates, ice skates and scooters catering to the growing skate market on the Gold Coast.

At the moment, we are not going to have a full website for it, rather it’s going to run almost entirely through social media, including the Facebook page and Twitter account. FourSquare is also in the works (pending verification).
