THE SKATE SPINNER
The Skate Spinner is a figure skating or dance training device that scientifically simulates the skating blade on the ice and enables skaters and dancers to practice spins, turns, jumps, and good basic figure skating or dance positions. Use of the Skate Spinner will improve your balance, ability to centre spins, air position and the mechanics of turns.
Each Skate Spinner comes with an illustrated instruction manual. The Skate Spinner is made of durable hard plastic and works on any smooth surface. The surface of the spinner fits a shoe perfectly, and with the new Skate Spinner Tape it can be used in sneakers or bare foot.
The Skate Spinner was designed by a former world and Olympic competitor, professional skater and coach, and constructed by engineers using computer technology. The bottom of the Skate Spinner simulates the skating blade profile to mimic the technique of the skating foot – finding the sweet spot in the spinning position or rolling action during take offs.
Skate Spinner is used by beginners, advanced skaters and champions internationally (Canada, USA, Australia, France, Germany, Finland, Sweden, Korea, and many others!)
Skate Spinner is light and compact, requires little or no maintenance, and will easily fit into any skate bag. You’ll arrive on the ice prepared from your off-ice practice.
