NEED!!

Looks like they're working on the Twister for personal use.  I wonder if rinks would allow it on any type of ice.  Coffee Club maybe?

That is so cool!

The coach made up a new word I think "Comfortability" - but it makes total sense!  I would love to use one of these to work on turns!

It might kind of freak me out though if my speed was determined by everyone else on the thing - I wonder how that works?

Yeah, it could be a little like our last winter show, where I (slowest skater in the bunch) somehow ended up on the end of the pinwheel. All I could do was hang on for dear life as I got flung around the ice.
