For those of you looking for skates and kit, here are links to some online providers of skates and kit.

Everglides (Skates under 'quad skates', pads under 'protective equip' in the menu on left)
Amazing Skates
Billy's Skates

They each have slightly different items, so take a look at all three and see what they've got. John at Everglides is very helpful if you have any questions. I also think that you might be able to get a 10% discount at Everglides if you mention in your order that you are starting to skate with a derby league (not 100% sure about this, but worth a try).

John at Everglides has now started to sell Sure-Grip products, so you can get your Fugitives there too, and Rebel skates, which are a great starter skate :)

Hi there.
I'm in the Saturday beginner's group. I have skates, but I'm going to invest in new ones as the ones I have aren't great for acceleration. I've had a look at various derby quad skate suppliers but I really have no idea what I'm looking for... Do any seasoned derbiers have any suggestions? Any stellar makes of skates for acceleration that you have experience with, etc?

Almost everyone has Riedell skates except Metallikat with her lovely bonts. The R3 is a great starter skate but still kinda pricey - you're looking at about £100. There's lots of threads in this part of the forum about more geekery.

(addressing the thread title rather than offering specific advice)

The starter packs in this thread are good for people in need of the whole package of skates and pads, helmet etc: viewtopic.php?f=27&t=15495

I started with the Triple 8 Intermediate starter pack from Kickflip Boards and can vouch for both the quality and Matt from Kickflip's excellent customer service.

Also have only nice things to say about Amazing Skates. The Enforcer, who runs A.S. is a gent, and the prices are competitive considering it's almost exclusively US grey imports on sale.

Aside: Kickflip's website seems to be FUBAR at the time of writing.

It's unlikely - but if anyone's coming to the Rainy City intraleague on this Sunday in Manchester, then Kickflip will have a stall. Hopefully they'll be at out double header bout on the 30th as well (vs Glasgow & Bedfordshire).

These guys look quite good:
Wreckless Skate Shop
Based in Ireland, but do international orders. Have a whole derby section including various options on 265 skate combos. I've just ordered some Scabs recaps from there for £16 including shipping, so the pricing is keen. They've got Gumball toestops coming soon for about £14...

Thought it worth adding to this thread that this facebook group http://www.facebook.com/#!/group.php?gid=322431293145 is pretty good for buying/selling second-hand roller derby gear in the UK
