Of course! We’ve had a number of Olympic and National level skaters train on our surface and they always identify how smooth and natural the skating feels. Much of this performance lies in the HDPE recipe we’ve engineered which sees our panels walk the perfect line between hard and slightly less hard surface tension. It offers a dynamic responsiveness for both young and elite skaters alike.
Toe picks are more aggressive to the surface than a hockey skate and they will affect the lifespan of the panel. In order to mitigate accelerated wear & tear from this, we always recommend limiting movements such as toe-assisted takeoffs and jumps to a few select panels. This way, if there were to be excessive damage to your designated area, you would only seek to replace these particular panels; not your whole surface.
