Figure Skating on Synthetic Ice

Booking ice time can be a challenging thing, especially for an individual figure skater. Prime time slots can be difficult to get because of team hockey practices or games and the expense can be too much for an individual practice.

Imagine having a space in your own home where you could practice your turns, spins, jumps and skating skills! No more fighting for ice time, no more driving to the rink, no more waiting for other skaters to get out of the way.

Competitive figure skaters can get all the time they need whenever they want if a synthetic ice rink was set up right in your own home. A backyard, basement, garage or any flat surface makes for an ideal spot to install your own personal rink. The best part is that weather doesn’t affect the surface of your ice. You can practice all year long inside or out!

Skating on synthetic ice is similar to skating on the real thing. It does add a little extra resistance (10-15% more) than a traditional ice surface, but this resistance can improve skills once returning to natural ice. Figure skaters will notice an increase in strength, endurance and agility once back on real ice.

Choosing the right manufacturer is crucial. Some products on the market are hard, difficult to skate on and require messy lubricants to be effective. Synthetic Ice Solutions has a superior product that has a True Lock system that makes installation a breeze with a perfect fit. You will not experience expansion and contraction issues that other inferior products have. State-of-the-art materials provide superior performance, wear, stability and a longer life. Each panel is custom built so your can create a surface that will fit your space perfectly. There is little maintenance required; an occasional sweep and mop should do the trick!
