Best Places to Skate in Hawaii

As far as I know, there is only one ice skating rink in Hawaii - the Ice Palace on Salt Lake Boulevard in Honolulu. They have public sessions, group and private lessons, and programs for figure skating and ice hockey. I have not been able to find any indoor roller skating rinks in Hawaii, but I know there use to be one on Hotel Street in Downtown Honolulu. There are several skate parks for skateboarders and aggressive inline skaters, including two skateparks on Maui that are managed by world class aggressive skater Thumper Nagasako. There are also inline hockey leagues and outdoor rinks on several of the islands. Hawaii is not generally considered a great place for recreational inline skating, but some people do enjoy street skating in Hawaii. Here is a forum discussion with more information: Hawaii Inline Skating Forum Discussion.
