Figure Skating

Synthetic Ice dramatically boosts speed and endurance. Improved performance is immediate. Because the Super-Glide® synthetic ice surfaceis 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® enhances spinning, figure skaters will use more strength and focus 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.
