Figure Skating on Super-Glide Synthetic Ice

“I loved skating in a warm temperature, usually I’m freezing.” – commented Olympic Figure Skating Champion Oksana Baiul after skating on Super-Glide® skating surface.

Figure skating on Super-Glide by Global 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.

  • 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.

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.

With a home rink from Global Synthetic Ice, time once wasted traveling to ice rinks becomes extra practice hours. Figure skaters save time, money and fuel while enhancing skills.

Unlimited practice time on a Super-Glide home rink produces instant results. The slowest students are soon the fastest. We have seen these winning improvements time and time again.

“The kids loved skating outdoors, within 1/2 an hour they were doing Axels, Double Flips, we couldn’t get them off. Super-Glide is Amazing.” – Wichita Figure Skating Club.

Super-Glide synthetic ice provides unlimited practice time and produces instant results significantly increasing figure skaters’ overall performance.
