When you first start roller skating, it can be a little overwhelming. You might feel like there are too many skates to choose from, and the accessories can be confusing. That’s why I’ve put together this guide to help you decide what type of roller blades Australia and accessories will work best for your needs. And if you’re new to the sport but want some additional guidance on getting started, check out my blog post here.

Get a pair of roller skates

When you first start roller skating, the best thing you can do is to go and get yourself a pair of skates. A lot of people like to buy their skates online, but it’s not always easy to find the right size or style. If you’re just starting out, it’s better to try on some pairs at a local skate shop until you find one that fits well and works for your needs.

Once you know what brand and style of skates fit your foot best (and are within your budget), all that remains is choosing how long-lasting they should be and how much money should be spent on them. Some people prefer expensive brands because they last longer than cheap ones; others opt for cheaper versions that give off fewer vibrations while skating around town.

Knee pads

Knee pads are a common piece of gear that can be worn with or without other protective gear. They can be worn under or over your pants, and in some cases, they may be worn with a knee brace. They are usually made from durable materials such as plastic, rubber and polyurethane. Knee pads can also come in many different styles, so it’s important to find one that is comfortable on your knees while also being able to provide adequate protection.

Wrist guards

Wrist guards are a great accessory to have as a skater. They protect your wrists from scrapes and cuts, sprains, broken wrists, broken bones, tendonitis and carpal tunnel syndrome.

I cannot stress enough the importance of wearing wrist guards if you’re going to be skating around town at high speeds on wheels. If you don’t wear them and get injured then not only will it put a damper on your day but also everyone around will think that you are an idiot for not taking proper precautions.


When you first start roller skating, it’s important to wear a helmet at all times. This is because falling and getting hurt can be a part of skating, so having a helmet on will help protect your head and face.

Your helmet should fit snugly around the back of your head but not be too tight that it causes discomfort. It should also not allow any top parts (like straps) to be loose; if this happens, try tightening the strap until it feels right for you. Some skates come with different sizes of helmets so make sure that when you get one, it fits comfortably on your head!


Now that you have the basics down, it’s time to buy some gear! As I mentioned before, there are many different options for men roller skates. The best way to figure out which ones will work for you is by trying them on at a store or online before making a purchase!
