    I don't notice any waves in the corners. CC had this. The ice here is sometimes soft for the figure skaters but for learning to skate, seems fine for me.

    They don't have a website as far as I know. Here is the hockey league http://www.westpachockey.com/
    I wan't criticizing you for pointing out Bay Harbor/Olympic Skating .... I'm just playing devils advocate as far as the 2 things I think need the most attention in that rink.

    Sweet. Vic is a terrific guy. He was so soft spoken you would have never even figured him as a hockey player, really. I actually went to the proshop that was next door to the rink, it was also run by a great lady named Rhonda, but she went out of business unfortunately.

    wow! thanks to everyone that took time to recommend places. bay harbor might be an option. my brother actually used to play their and its pretty close to my house. for some reason, that rink completely slipped my mind. i think i'll go check out pricing and make a decision. thanks again, i really appreciate it!

    Good to see she's still working in a shop, shame though she's not running her own shop, she was the best in the south bay by far.

    I buy almost all of my stuff from Vic. He loves to talk hockey and I like to listen

    I showed him how to get NHL games on the internet and now every time I go in there, he is watching some game on his computer.

    If you want to shop with Vic, you should call first to make sure he is there. He has a full time job somewhere else plus he is coaching some kids team. I went in recently and he was on the ice with kids and not available to sell to me.

    I think pub skating is Friday night 8:30 to 10:30, Saturday night 8:00 to 10:00 and they have it on Sundays before hockey.

    I am guessing that it is $8.00 to skate plus $3 for rental. You can rent hockey skates.


    The hockey league is 3 levels, level 3 plays Sundays. Level 2 and 1 play Wed and Thursdays.
