OUR STORY

Way way back in 2001 our owner David Healy woke up and had a urge to skate, to meet up with some local friends and play some hockey, as all of us skaters do (including figure skaters. Dance, Freestyle, pairs, synchro, etc). But, there was a serious problem, his skates were dull. After cycling through the area’s “finest” skate sharpeners he came to realize the sharpening were anything but fine. How does this happen? although we are limited in New York City to the number of rinks we have, those sheets of ice are occupied nearly 24/7 with passionate, dedicated skaters. How in the world was there no good skate sharpeners in the greater New York area?

What a dilemma right? Instead of living with that problem, Dave decided to become the solution. He went through the necessary training to become a premier skate sharpener. First, practicing the trade out of his apartment to help out is friends. The demand soon became too great and Dave create Westside Skate and Stick.
