The upfront cost isn't too terrible, you'll need skates (obviously), but don't need the pricey ones when you're just starting out. Trust me, you won't know the difference until you're pretty well into it, and even then some people don't upgrade. I'd suggest Riedell R3's to start. Several websites have a "derby starter package", but unless you want to have your knees perpetually shredded, I would suggest throwing down the cash for good knee pads. 187's are awesome. I highly recommend Sin City Skates for all your derby needs. It's entirely owned and staffed by skaters who will give you great advice about gear, wheels, helmets, teams, etc.

I saw that you mentioned derby insurance in a comment above. I WOULD NOT suggest skating without "real" insurance as well. The derby insurance is basically just a legal requirement so that venues can't be held liable for skater injuries. The deductible is absurdly high and they still won't cover everything.

I absolutely love skating. Plus I get to blow a whistle and yell at people, so that's great stress relief ;)
