Hi! I’m Simone Fisher and I’m here at Clearwater
Ice Arena in sunny Clearwater, Florida. On behalf of Expert Village, we’re going to introduce
to you some advanced figure skating jumps. This is Victoria and she will be demonstrating
and Axel. With the Axel, she’s actually going to be doing a 1 1/2 rotation in the air. She’ll
be going into it with a backwards crossovers. She’ll be jumping straight up into the air,
holding her arms together, and coming out of the jump on a back outside edge. Looks
like she’s going to start right now. Here she goes. She just landed on the back outside
edge of the opposite foot. That is the Axel.

    if you THINK it's scary then you won't be able to do the axel! think of it as a really easy jump – it's just like a waltz jump but with a spin in conjunction to it 🙂

    how the heck do you do a quad without knowing how to do a SINGLE axel? that's not even possible, so stop trying to impress people with your lies!

    I have the Jackson Women's Elite Professional or something and JW Professional blades… they cost me $600.00!!! They are much better though, but it was a pain to break into those boots!!!!! Either way, new skates don't garantee you an axel hahaha. I am starting to work on it, the axel is harder than it looks lol

    fyi Rachel Flatt wears riedells. There are some riedells that are beginner skates. But, there are some top of the line skates from riedell. They span all levels, and you even can get customs from them.

    This is crap. Back outside edge, when you go onto the forward outside edge think of jumping out of the circle but keep your right arm in front of you. As you jump imagine you are going up the stairs, that will ensure your free foot moves in front as if you were going up a step. Keep a straight back. If you will do this , you will complete the rotation and land on nice running back outside edge. It worked for me 25 years ago.

    In terms of the adult skating world, you're a young one. If you seriously practice as much as you can, and have the determination, you can do an axel. It may not be for a few years yet, but you will get it. I've even seen videos of adults twice your age landing axels, so age is no excuse. 🙂 BTW, I'm also an adult skater, skating at the ISI Freestyle 1 level, and I started a year and half ago at 30! I'm not doing single jumps, let alone an axel, yet, but I can't wait until I do!

    to be fair, the video title doesn't imply that it's a tutorial. no need to be harsh because you think it's a tutorial, its merely a showcase

    I have Jackson Premiere's and coronation Matrix Ultima Supreme Blades… since I got them, I've definitely noticed a HUGE improvement on the quality, height and distance of my jumps. They take quite a while to break in, but they're extremely comfortable when you do… double Salchows have been added to my jumping practice repertoire consistently now thanks to these boots XD
