The Skating Specialist
Everglides was formed in 2005 by skaters to suit the demanding needs of fellow skaters.
Based in the south of England we are well known in skating circles as the ‘go to’ place for professional and friendly advice for all things skating related
We were the official skate technicians for ITV’s Dancing on Ice from 2008 to 2014, supplying and fitting Figure skates for the annual list of celebrities on the show.
We are all competent skaters across multiple disciplines who skate for the love of the sport. We are very active in the field of speed skating, both long track and short track, and have a number of national and international medal placings to our name!
Claire & John at Everglides are the only people I trust with my 9 year old daughters ice skates.. they spend good quality time with her and give their expert opinions on which skate suits my daughters feet, abilities and skating level. Very thorough, patient and helpful. Having used them for 2.5 years for skates, sharpening and ice skate accessories, Everglides have my total trust. (September 2019)
Everglides are just the most helpful people. My son has just purchased his very first pair of figure skates and he will never forget his experience. Our sincere thanks! (September 2019)
John and Clare are incredible. My daughter loves popping in to them every time we visit Gosport rink. They have made sure she has the correct figure skates each time new ones are needed (only twice so far as they fitted insoles to correct foot position and pain which solved issues) and the aftercare has been fabulous. They even dry her blades if we forget to take her dry cloth! (May 2019)
I’m always astounded by the amazing service from John. I took my daughter in for new skates today as we thought hers were too small as her feet were cramping….we came out with custom fitted insoles and a revamp of her existing skates…saving me hundreds of pounds…thank you very much John (May 2019)
Absolutely fantastic service, you have gone above what is expected and you put so much effort to find something that was suitable and comfortable for me to wear, I have recommended your services to people I know who skate, thank you so much again! (February 2019)

We travelled from Essex to purchase ice skates as we had read outstanding reviews. John and Clare were absolutely fantastic from our very first visit to our second. They took time with customers and advice offered was invaluable. Would definitely recommend Everglides. We will be using again and again in the future. Thank you! (March 2018)
Me and my husband went into Everglides today after purchasing our skates online from another shop provided. We found out my husbands skates were not actually sharpened and mine were not sharpened properly at all! Lara could not of helped us any more then she did ! after speaking to Lara I found out that the ice skates that I actually bought would not last me very long and she help me find and fitted another pair which fit lovely and skate lovely too. I also found out my feet go in when standing and skating so again solara helped me find some insoles to help support my feet! Detail and time was not issue for her when we was in there today ! i just want to thank you for your advice and help and also for future help you have mentioned to me! (Feburary 2017)
