Friday public was ... interesting today.

A family of three - all learning to skate together and unfortunately blocking most of my video... but hey... it's public and I don't own the rink.

Skater #2 was a hoot.  I have seen him once before.  Sunglasses, long hair ... could it be????
Axel Rose's alter ego on ice?

Worked on Moves in the Field, then some Loop jumps with alternate jump entries (double inside three turns), a few attempts at twizzles and some back and flying camel spin attempts.


  1. I am also practicing my flying camel I think you would find your flying camel easier if you did it off backward crossovers. When I do it off a three turn entry I feel too twisted and cannot get a good fly.

  2. You are probably right. Even when I precede the LO3 with a RI3 it feels more natural .... I still need work on my back camel too... That is part of it, but I am starting to locate the right part of my blade from time to time. Thanks for your comments.

  3. "Whiskey, Tango, Foxtrot" indeed Diane! But then again, anything is possible in the PNW, right?!



 I didn’t skate at all since last Thursday so I guess I get what I deserve in the lack of progress department.  I am just so frustrated over...
