Angela Barbuti of Heavy.com offers some insight on PolyGlide Synthetic Ice and founder Jim Loughran.
Welcome skaters of all ages to the official PolyGlide blog with all the latest news, articles and updates from the skating world and beyond! Since PolyGlide was showcased on ABC's Shark Tank last December it's been quite an exciting run!! The "Proof of Concept" set forth by PolyGlide owner and founder Jim Loughran was proven true as it has become clear to us all that people LOVE to ice skate!!!.....and if they can do it in the privacy of their own home or facility they will!
No longer do folks living in the warm climate areas have to rely on driving to the local rink (in some cases hours) to practice or learn to ice skate. They can now build their own rink right in their backyard, playroom or basement!! Parents can now teach their children to ice skate in shorts and a tee shirt without having to drive to the rink and watch their child hug onto the handrail looking forward to the first hot chocolate break....lol.
Check out this recent response to our Facebook post when we asked "How Far Do You Have To Drive To The Rink?....We Want To Know.
