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 on the ice and she will be
demonstrating a Double Axel. With the Double Axel, she’s going to be skating backwards.
She’ll be jumping and she’ll be in the air for 2 1/2 rotations, so it’s going to be just
like the single Axel, except it’s going to be a rotation longer. The take off is going
to be from an outside edge of one foot. She’ll do the 2 1/2 rotations and the landing will
be on the backward outside edge of the opposite foot of the take off. Looks like she’s going
to start that right now. She’s getting ready. She’s her jumping position, Double Axel, and
out. Great. She always holds her landing and that was it. That was the Double Axel.

    i hate the fact that most, if not all, instructional figure skating videos are made for counterclockwise spinners/jumpers. I am a clockwise spinner and jumper and part of the minority, but yeah, so what????? According to the USFSA there is no rule saying you HAVE TO be a counterclockwise spinner/jumper, IT'S NOT FAIR!!!!! it makes all very hard for us CW spinners to learn!!!!

    Heck yeah, i found out recently she was a CW skater. I was surprised to find out that Denise Biellmann was a CW skate too 🙂 someone told me that's its like, a rule in figure skating in Russia that all skaters gotta spin CCW. weird… i dunno, i am left-handed, maybe that's why I am a CW skater, go figure

    I know how you feel. I hate having to translate everything in my mind, the instructions get even more confusing… the other day this old couple at the skating club yelled at me saying I was going in the wrong direction when I almost bumped into them. I was so pissed, it's like they were saying that spinning and jumping in a different direction is wrong. I wanted to tell them to go to hell!!! It sux to be minority… oh well, what can I do? At least I can spin/jump unlike those old people muawha

    I find the axel really difficult. I have been trying to learn it now for a about 3 months and am having no progress. Ugh! I need better help than this video. Thought it would help…but no.

    I know!!!! Have you ever been to the Skating Club of Boston's public session? There's always tons of old couples skating and pissing figure skaters off… they are supposed to skate around in circles, not in the middle of the rink, coz that's where figure skaters hang out

    Ive been skating for 13 months, I am 24 now. The hardest jump I can land is the lutz, and I am working on camel spins and my axel. Can you do axels? I almost got it the other day, grrrr…

    No one, no matter how talented, can learn a double axel in 6 months. It takes years of practice, hard work, and dedication. I had triple jumps before my double axel!
    This video is not very informative; the woman speaking doesn't say anything about actual technique. You can barely even see the jump, let alone her form. If you really want to learn, find a different video.

    it was a nice double axel but this didn't help me at all the skater was too far away to see any details and everyone knows for a 2 axel you jump do 2+ 1/2 rotations then you land.

    I'm the sister of the owner of this account and I ice skate… I'm currently learning the double axel and triple sal I agree with Clark that a double axel is 2 1/2 because you start wih a forward take off and exit back just because you hear the double it doesn't necessarily mean twice the rotation of the jump

    well, it's not like the people who are just watching this video without professional coaching are going to go out and try double axels, so if you're looking for "the hows" on how to do it, ask your coach. and if you're not a competitive skater, you SHOULD NOT try double axels anyways.

    I agree – when the camera shot doesn't even include the skater, or is so far away from her when she is jumping, what's the point? We can't learn what we cannot see. I like it better when the other skater (what's her name?) gives a slow, pre-explanation of the jump up close, then goes into the actual jump, right in front of & 'within' the camera shot!!!

    Excellent double axel. I think the problem here is the stationary camera. A hand-held camera with zoom would have been more beneficial.

    That is a very good double axel, but a little tight in the air. If she opens up a little the triple will be soo easy for her.

    @phusk8r I know… I'm saying she has enough height in the air that her arms do not need to be so close to her. If she opens up her arms a little now on the doubble axel, all she will need to do for the tripple axel is pull in tighter… Of course she will need to be tight for a tripple axel, but where she's at on her double, she doesn't need to be so tight

    1. She is too far away to see anything.
    2. You're really not explaining anything more than people could find out if they went to google and typed in "double axel."
    3. This is the fourth video I've watched where you have mispronounced demonstrating. Really? It's demONstrating, not demINGstrating

    It was a good solid jump….but if a skater wants to learn the double axel…they need to be able to see! And anybody who is working on a double axel knows how many rotatioins they'll be doing…they want help on things like how to get higher, or how to use your arms…not how many rotations to do.

    This is more demonstrational than instructional. The jump was not viewed up close and broken down technique wise. However, the skater did do a nice jump (yes folks, people south of the Mason Dixon line actually can figure skate).

    this video only suits for innocent people to see what 2A looks like. everyone knows these basic things, where is the details? or she only knows these basics? i guess victoria can give much better tips. the camera also fails, can't zoom in. nice 2A, but i can see nice 2A on youtube everywhere too. what's the point of this video if it's a tutorial?

    The description says, quote: Learn how to do a double axel ice skating jump, step by step, Unquote. The title itself doesn't say anything. So yes, it was meant as a "How to".
