Freestyle Ice Skating: Triangle / Barrel Roll Tutorial

Freestyle Ice Skating: Triangle / Barrel Roll Tutorial


Hey guys. The Triangle, also known as the Barrell Roll is one of the basic freestyle footwork tricks. A lot of you already requested this tutorial,
so let’s talk about it… Look at that brand new ice! I’m risking my life for this tutorial. I want to show the tracks on the untouched
surface. The core movement should be as simple as this. I’ll show you in both directions, but first
to right. Push your right leg to the front, then switch
to the other. Pull back the right leg, pull back the left. If you’re able to do it continously, you’re
done. Check the tracks. You can watch our usual animation from any
angle if you follow the link in the description. Note that even the basic movement is HEAVILY
dependent on your style. For example: the rotation for this side is
the fastest when I’m pulling back my leg. I do turn continuously, but but I like to
push myself more agressively at this point. At least when I’m turning right. Because when I’m doing it to the left, I prefer
another style. I like to step over a little bit (..instead
of making an aggressive push), and this creates a slight rhythm like a dance move. It’s more continuous. The variations are literaly endless. Feel free to add your own style. Some tips: You can switch between the 2 directions. You can perfectly transfer into a grapevine, because you arrive into the exact same position after the first half. The grapevine tutorial is here in case you’re
interested. Or you can add various steps, just experiment. Xeo Lifestyle also did a tutorial on a variation
where you step over with your front foot, you can check that out as well. Link in the description. And if the winter is over you can continue
practicing on roller skates too. Lastly I have some footage from my friend Patrick from Germany so you don’t only see my style. And that’s it, I believe it’s an easy trick,
and you can practice in crowded places too. Along with the grapevine we covered the 2
fundamental footwork tricks, of coure there are others, we’ll get to those later. Until that, see you!

  1. I gotta say these tutorials are playing a huge factor in helping me in the development of my ice freestyle skills so honestly I can't thank you enough for posting them!! 👍👍👍 Please keep the tutorials coming regularly!!! 😊

  2. The roller blades you've shown are of the fitness model, it's a terrible replacement for the hockey ice skates. 🙂
    For that kind of tricks better suit freestyle models with shorter frames and harder boots.

  3. What can I do if I tend to slip out when Im on my heels with the bottom tip of the skate. This stops me from doing the movement fast and I have to do it slow to have control and not slip out

  4. Anyone else learning to freestyle in Florida? Sometimes I feel like I'm the only one. Hmu if you live in the Tampa Bay area.

  5. really nice Video (as usual) .. the editing is perfect (as usual) .. the Explaining is simple as 123 … just perfect dude .. nothing more to say.. keep it up!!!!

  10. In the triangle / barrel roll tutorial, what is the move between 1:33 and 1:36 starting with a reverse counter clockwise spin pivoting on the right skate? Thanks

  11. Hey I learned few tricks from you already! Thanks for the great tutorials 🙂 I like the way you deliver all the info in very simple to understand steps. I hope you keep making these videos.

  12. Thank you so much for this tutorial! Well explained and demonstrated.
    Tried it out today on a local rink and got it within 10 minutes. Pretty easy if you have decent one foot and outer edge control. Now gonna make it in the opposite direction and master both to combine with other movements.

    p.s. a small tip: if you feel unstable trying this or just can't get the right movement, consider holding the board at first while trying. Much easier to get familiar with the movements.

  13. hey, love your video's. But I think you could have explained this trick a little better. No hate just my opinion.

  14. ну я так умею. Делаю так, когда пытаюсь удержать равновесие, чтобы не упасть
