NPT Roller derby
Skates. They’re just boots with wheels on aren’t they??  For many months after I started roller derby, I was super confused about the different components of a skate. Other skaters would talk at length about plates, cushions and trucks and it would all go over my head. Even worse, I was too embarrassed to ask people to explain it all to me. Above is a little photo I found which makes understanding your skates just that little bit easier.
