    Jorge Novoa is from Spain and was the first Xtreme Ice Skater to do a Frontside 720 (which is when you turn 90 degrees and jump — originally called “Bomb Air” and renamed to “FrontSide” later on).

    Love this its well good!

    I have been working recently on speeding up my jump 360s – they look way more impressive at speed….finally bit the bullet and attempted clearing one of the blue hockey goal Ds doing a 360 and managed to land it clean on the 3rd attempt I think it was and then did it again for good measure haha!! well chuffed!

    Congrats. Can you get a video?

  4. Paul says:

    cheers! done it quite a few more times since, so feeling more confident with it now…I can possibly get a video but its not easy as 1) most of us that skate together dont have our mobiles on the ice with us and 2) your not allowed to use phones or cameras on the ice lol!!

    However we’ve managed before so I think we can manage again given time!

    We also measured the blue hockey goal D and its 12ft!!!! I didnt realise it was such a big jump haha!

      Congratulations by the way.
      Aren’t your PDA’s (personal digital assistants) really small? I’m sure you can record incognito. Or if not, have someone record from off the ice.

  5. Paul says:

    recording equipment isnt allowed in the rink fullstop – well…I dont think they’d look too kindly on a full size hand held video camera lol and from a mobile from off ice would be too far away and wouldnt be worth recording.

    Using mobile phone camera is the best option…I’ll just have to see who goes on sunday when I next skate and see what happens!

    • Dan Perceval says:

      Why do rinks have these rules? They are over the top. I think most ice rinks in my country allow cameras so long as they’re off the ice. There’s nothing wrong with recording friends. That’s what cameras are for. When I was in Italy, I remember they had those rules. I had to ask special permission from management to record.

        I know silly ain’t it! I’ll see what I can pull together for you over my next few skate sessions though!
