My First Day in Snow White Inline Figure Skates
Jo Ann Schneider Farris
In November of 2004 Jo Ann Schneider Farris, the author of the book
"How to Jump and Spin on Inline Skates" tried skating on the
new Snow White inline figure skating frame.
Here is Jo Ann's review of the Snow White inline figure skating frame.
MY FIRST DAY IN THE SNOW WHITE IN-LINE FIGURE SKATE
Jo Ann Schneider Farris
Author of How to Jump and Spin on Inline Skates
A new in-line figure skate has recently made an appearance.
It is called The Snow White Skate. My first day skating in these
skates proved to be wonderful!
I am able to do spins and jumps on them with ease. Also, they
are very light and the short frame makes it possible to do ice dances!
I began my first time in Snow Whites with some caution.
After doing several waltz jumps, I moved on to Salchows and
then toe-loops. I then attempted some spirals and pivots.
I was so impressed with the lightness on the skate and found
myself wanting to do more. Soon I was doing falling leafs, loops,
flips, lutzes, and axels! I also found spinning to be delightful.
It took a bit before I figured out how to get up from a sit spin
since I needed to force my weight a bit forward, but once I found
that place, I was doing sit spins over and over. Doing camel spins
felt so much like my camel spins on the ice!
Finally, as I began doing footwork and stroking, I realized how
much the lightness of this skate made doing those things a pleasure.
I loved putting my feet close together as I did ice dances!
It was fun doing the three turns in the European Waltz! It was
also great fun doing the Blues and Killian! And... doing edges and
swing rolls, forward and backward, went so smoothly!
My day on Snow Whites was the best! I canít wait to skate on them again.
I highly recommend this product for the serious artistic in-line
figure skater or for anyone who wishes to do what is done on the
ice on an in-line skate. For information and for photos of this new in-line figure skating frame
