Global Synthetic Ice has been awarded the U.S. Patent (No. 8,129,005) for its invention of Synthetic Ice and methods of assembly. The Patent includes the interlocking assembly method developed by Global Synthetic Ice for building Full-Size Hockey Rinks. This assembly system is also used in other commercial facilities as well as home rinks. Super-Glide Facilities have been leading the way in the synthetic ice industry since 2000 and utilize the most advanced systems available to date.
We shipped an order of Super-Glide Ultra panels to a gentleman by the name of Jared Polin last month. Jared is an accomplished photographer, videographer and all around nice guy. He runs a blog called Fro Knows Photo (did we mention that he wears his hair in a big ol' afro?), which hosts a great community of photographers, and he regularly posts instructional videos on YouTube on photography techniques.
Jared's latest video is all about how to shoot great hockey action photos, and features him skating around on his Global Synthetic Ice rink! It's a great instructional video if you want to learn about action photography. If you're no so interested in that, skip to the 22-minute mark where he tells you what he thinks of his rink.
The Super-Glide Canada team has been busy putting on public events such as this one in Montreal. Watch these figure skaters as they perform on Super-Glide Ultra synthetic ice panels for the first time.

The MGM Macau Hotel on the Southern coast of China has set up an incredible holiday display using Ultra synthetic ice and live figure skating shows as a centerpiece. There is a great video that includes footage of the ice-skating show on their Christmas Wonderland 2011 page. Figure skating shows featuring Australian performers will delight audiences daily until December 25th!
Imagine being in the middle of a winter wonderland, celebrating Christmas while an enchanting figure skating extravaganza from Australia performs their amazing show right in front of your eyes.
You'll delight in the wonder and magic of white, icy snowflakes as they drift in the air as you make your holiday wish next to a 30-ft tall Christmas tree surrounded by elegantly sculpted bronze ballerinas. This is all part of the wondrous Christmas experience set to take place at MGM MACAU Grande Praça, including a superb international group of skaters gloriously spinning and twirling on a custom-made ice rink from December 1 to 25, 2011. This is just a taste of the magical Christmas we've planned for you and your family this holiday season. Come and be a part of the magic!
