Halifax has its own roller derby league (Anchor City Rollers), as well as the Oval for roller skating in summer, skate parks, and now roller discos held at the Mayflower Curling Club! This city is going to the skaters, and I LOVE it!
With all this fun skating happening, we need a local store to get all our gear (not to mention advice on joining derby, learning to skate on quad skates, and the best trails to explore on wheels). So Coffin Skate Shop is absolutely the place to go! And they’re also the team who brought back roller discos!
I took two pups to the shop last weekend for a fun little session because the shop is dog-friendly and I wanted to make sure everyone knew. Stephanie Coffin and her husband James are awesome people and skaters, and they welcomed us with open arms!
These fabulous models are Gnocchi the Corgi and Nymeria the Samoyed who is only a few months old. Both have their own Instagram accounts (of course)! So go follow them after you see how adorable they are ;)
