New Rink in Quincy Il. has Great Grand Opening 11/16/2012

We were recently in Quincy, IL, helping to open the new River Skate Super-Glide rink right on the Mississippi River.

This is a beautiful setting, and over 200 skaters joined us opening day, all having a great time and planning to return.

The size of the rink is 81 panels (36' X 72') which is plenty of room to hold 50 skaters at one time.

Is it Ice?

That is what everyone is saying when they see our newest Super-Glide video. The kids are Mites and Squirts and now have to play against Pee Wee teams because of their training on Super-Glide. After only a few months, noticeable improvements were found in all skaters. Some, who were once among the slowest, improved so much they are now the fastest. We've seen this over the last twelve years, time and time again.

Is it ice? No, it's Super-Glide Synthetic Ice!!

Global Synthetic Ice is the proud sponsor of the International Goaltending Competition, held in eight cities, with the finals in Orlando, Florida. For the first time ever, the best goalies in each region will compete head to head to find out whom is the best goaltender. Global Synthetic Ice will have two warm-up rinks available at each location allowing the players to get ready for their turn in the competition. There is no doubt we will see some of these competitors on an NHL team in the future.

Fro Knows Global Synthetic Ice 01/20/2012

We shipped an order of Super-Glide Ultra panels to a gentleman by the name of Jared Polin last month. Jared is an accomplished photographer, videographer and all around nice guy. He runs a blog called Fro Knows Photo (did we mention that he wears his hair in a big ol' afro?), which hosts a great community of photographers, and he regularly posts instructional videos on YouTube on photography techniques.

Jared's latest video is all about how to shoot great hockey action photos, and features him skating around on his Global Synthetic Ice rink! It's a great instructional video if you want to learn about action photography. If you're no so interested in that, skip to the 22-minute mark where he tells you what he thinks of his rink.
