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.

Here is another great video Niki Warchola sent us from the HockeyDOME in Germany. Watch closely, you'll see not only hockey practice and games, but also the very social sport of CURLING! This variation is different from Scottish Curling as we've seen in recent Olympic games, it is called Bavarian Curling (or Eisstockschießen, German for "Ice Stock Sport"). There are no "sweepers" and it is not a strategic game like the Scottish version. Bavarian Curlers merely hurl for distance or to get closest to a target.
