The Best Synthetic Ice
Created by Skaters For Skaters
Spins, flip jumps, spread eagles, change foot spins, loop jumps, axels, foot work presented by Perry Boskus – an accomplished skater, hockey player and coach, inventor and manufacturer of Super-Glide synthetic ice for 20 years, skating on the outdoor Super-Glide synthetic ice rink in New York.
Super-Glide IS the best synthetic ice
to practice and skate on
Super-Glide synthetic ice surface challenges figure skaters to refine their spins and erase small technique flaws. Practicing on Super-Glide boosts figure skaters’ spinning ability. Ultimately, figure skaters overall performance is increased, skaters who aspire to be the best are now training on Super-Glide synthetic ice.
Edge jumps: Super-Glide® encourages figure skaters to press harder into jumps, resulting in more height on ice.
Toe jumps: Super-Glide teaches figure skaters to place the toe pick correctly for more efficient take-offs.
Spins: Super-Glide on better positions, resulting in faster more controlled spins.

They have successfully coached many National, International and World Junior Champions, medalists and competitors. Alex is PSA Master Rated coach, PSA Rank V, World and European Championships Silver medalist, placed 4th at the 1976 Winter Olympics, coached by Tamara Moskvina. Laura is PSA Senior Rated coach, PSA Rank IV
Super-Glide Synthetic Ice
& Figure Skating
Figure skating on Super-Glide® synthetic Ice dramatically boosts speed and endurance. Improved performance is immediate. Because the Super-Glide® synthetic ice surface is nominally more resistant than ice, figure skaters press harder and increase strength. On real ice, figure skaters press the same and skate faster. Super-Glide® can be instrumental in developing better jumps and spins. From waltz jumps to triple axels, all figure skating elements can be performed on Super-Glide®.
Benefits of practicing on Super-Glide synthetic ice
Super-Glide synthetic ice surface challenges figure skaters to refine their spins and erase small technique flaws. Practicing on SLICK boosts figure skaters’ spinning ability. Ultimately, figure skaters overall performance is increased, skaters who aspire to be the best are now training on our newest generation synthetic ice – Super-Glide SLICK.
