Advanced Ice Skating Jumps : The Toe Loop Ice Skating Jump
Advanced Ice Skating Jumps : The Toe Loop Ice Skating Jump

Hi! I’m Simone Fisher and I’m here at Clearwater
Ice Arena in sunny Clearwater, Florida. On behalf of Expert Village, we’re going to introduce
to you some advanced figure skating jumps. Hi! Now I’m going to demonstrate a toe loop.
The toe loop is just like the loop jump, except you actually put your toe in the ground and
you jump up off the toe. Basically, it’s the same thing. You bend your knee, jump right
off that toe pick, bring your arms in, jump around, and have a nice landing position.
With the top loop, I usually take 3 strokes into it, do a 3 turn, pick into the ice, and
away I go. I’m going to now demonstrate the toe loop. Here I go. I’m actually going to
turn around and come toward you so you can see. Here we go. 1, 2, and that is a toe loop.

    a single toe loop isn't exactly what you call advanced skating a triple toe loop is what you call advanced skating

    Honestly, that really was hardly an explnation at all, esp. considering, how much my coach told me. She always demonstrates the take off in slow motion. In the case of the toe loop, she puts her left foot into the ice behind her. Then she pulls so that the right foot glides backwards and passes the right (on the left side), at the same time closing her arms in front of her left side). And she jumps off by taking the right foot up.

    very true

    i'm bad at these, but i'm working on them…. but seriously that was a bad video if you want to learn how to do these….

  5. 알리 TV- AlyTV says:

    wth was that??

  6. Tyrel0401 says:

    I do skating and thats what my toe-loops look like… maybe you're thinking of a double or triple toe-loop?

  7. Tyrel0401 says:

    you mean Salchow XD

    hmm… maybe they both look similar ^^

  8. AsianAvarice says:

    Waltz jumps are considered the easiest jump. But for some reason, nobody in my Basic 8 class passed the Waltz Jump because the teacher said we "hopped" instead of "jumped."
    Waltz jumps really aren't that easy for me. But that's just me.

  10. moietmavieana says:

    the difference is that you don t hit the ice (i mean the toe) with the same leg. and usually when you learn it, you learn the flip with an outside 3-turn, and the toe-loop with an inside 3 turn.

  11. moietmavieana says:

    Well, that's also another way. but point is- you don t hit the ice with the same foot 😉

  12. WendyLuz14 says:

    the day i did it…i was amazed of myself…lol it was actually the 1st "jump" i did 🙂

  13. Tyrel0401 says:

    the toe loop and cherry flip are the same thing, they're just different name =3

  14. Morgan Bates says:

    its quite easy actually, although i dont like it much.. i dont feel pretty when i do it haha

  15. Ggirl91 says:

    in ireland usually you learn the bunny hop, then the waltz/three jump, then the salchow, then the toe loop. i find the salchow so much easier to land.

  16. radianX1 says:

    She is really going to have a tough time doing her toe loop if she is puting her toe in the ground like she says. This expert vilage is stund and mindless which equals slightly funny and repulsive

  17. dsghyjd says:

    then get a coach

  18. Mollie Fraser says:

    Can't afford it i would if i could

  19. michael1215 says:

    lol wow. U definatley can not jump… Please get a better skating to demo next time. LOLZ Jump higher buddy! ya can't do a double toe with that.

  20. Ggirl91 says:

    in ireland we generally learn the salchow then the toe loop and after that i think its lutz then loop…I'm not at that level yet but i can do a waltz/three jump and a loop. toe loop is tricky.

  21. Ggirl91 says:

    no need to get big in the head. different places, different coaches, different systems. I know people who are skating 2 years and they're only starting on axels. some systems require you to go through a basics of skating programme before you move on to figure skating in full. In Ireland this programme ends with the waltz jump and basic 1foot spin. It takes roughly 10 months min to complete it and only then can you move on. a skaters coach will know when they're ready.

  22. Ggirl91 says:

    i'm doing waltz now. It can be fairly tricky. you have to just learn to get used to throwing your body in the air. it can be strange at first.

  23. Ggirl91 says:

    ISAI its pre-bronze but its considered advanced because we do a basic programme first. pre-bronze is the first "Advanced Test" if you get what i mean.

  24. Ggirl91 says:

    sometimes its called a cherry or cherry flip.

  25. starkeko says:

    um… not really the best way to explain a toe-loop… and not the best way to show it, either…

  26. asd1asd says:

    toe loop is to loop as bicycle is to a bike. both have wheels, but powered way differently.

  27. DD Major says:

    There was nothing wrong with the jump itself…. it was just not explained well at all. She didn't explain which edge to take off from or which toe to put in the ice… let alone weight transfer, checking, etc. And if you're going to say "it's just like the loop, except with the toe" you have to make sure to explain what a loop is to begin with.

  28. Camilla Esmé says:

    can you do any better?

  29. qtbeauty95 says:

    why would u make a tutorial for this what are the chances that any one watching is actually on ice

  30. qtbeauty95 says:


  31. Lemony Emily says:

    how do you guys manage to do this without toe stops? (i artistic roller skate)

  32. deeprose4 says:

    That was not very helpful at all. She gave no explanation of how the jump should be done really. I know (I think) you need to do a left outside three then pick with the right and then jump to the left?

  33. Camilla Esmé says:

    @Joffel27 In that case you may poke fun 🙂

  34. Camilla Esmé says:

    @EpicMusicOfficial You have a point! *sweatdrop*

  35. LavaLampBlob says:

    You take off from a back outside edge – so if you jump counter-clockwise, and want to enter with a 3-turn, it would be a right inside 3 turn. Then, gliding backwards on the right outside edge, you'd plant the toe pick of the left foot into the ice, vault into the air, turn counter clockwise, and land on the back outside edge of the right foot.

  36. Tlevittation says:

    not the best toe loop i have ever seen and the explanation isnt very good but atleast she was brave enough to put it on camera for us to watch and to educate the beginning class.

  37. Priyanka Bhatia says:

    that was a horrible toe loop.

  38. bigsislivie says:

    gees you guys can anyone say anything nice these days? her toe loop is fine! get over it! most of you were probably jealous that she can do something you can't :/ i though of it as a helpful video. thanks:)
    God bless-livie

  39. Hayley Dorrian says:

    @bigsislivie Thank you

  40. pinkcherries65555 says:

    these are actually sooo simple!!

  41. Regina Cortner says:

    @singactsk8 i'm learning my toe loop first. it's making me feel so incapable.

  42. alpha754293 says:


    I think that it's REALLLLLY hard to do a toe loop on ice, REALLLY slowly so that people can see how to do it.

    You try slowing it down for the purposes of instruction in the absence of a high speed camera so that people can see what you're doing with your skates. LOL. Good luck with that. Wear padding.

  43. camiheartzacnskating says:

    okay, my toeloop sucks but I can do better than that… i think?

  44. em4ety1 says:

    i am a profesional skater and i have never seen so bad toe loop!!!

  45. crazyxicexsk8er says:

    ew… that was such a bad toe loop O:

  46. Fiona A says:

    that simone fisher girl reminds me of the coach from tht movie ice princess lmfaooo.

  47. oceanyah12345 says:

    Hey this jump isn't that bad…. she just needs more confidence… but she doesn't exlain well though… just needs better explainations and zoom in on the jumo and after explain it again.

  48. Katherine Reber says:

    no offense, but people in florida shouldn't skate. just leave it to the north.

  49. Islaie O. says:

    first of all, the only thing toe loops and loops have in common is the word 'loop'. second, You shouldn't be showing other people how to do a jump when your own jump is only like an inch off the ground! and third, a toe loop is NOT an advanced jump! its like the second jump you learn in figure skating!

  50. Islaie O. says:

    @sassyqueen321 guess we do it different where I live :p i started my toe loop after waltz jumps

  51. Islaie O. says:

    @sassyqueen321 I agree 🙂

  52. tkdmh says:

    I figure skated last winter, I'm not so good, but I'll start line skating soon so I can be better on the ice this year! Is it a good way to learn?

  53. Kobrazell says:

    @islaie I've got a mental block with the toe loop, I found the salchow most natural and I'm closer to a decent axel than the toe 🙁

  54. Ananda Quinn says:

    damn im soo gonna fall on my ass tommorow :/

  55. MegaManX1415 says:

    VERY loose body posture during the explanations…my old coach's would of been yelling their heads off….

  56. mysterycat333 says:

    I just learned that and ca do it better. Explain the part about the Three-turn.

  57. Abigayl McWilliams says:

    I think u need real figure skaters…and p.s. that was a really bad toe loop you should do it right next time.

  58. Taylor Gaudiosi says:

    @kkmusic14 lmfaooo im from the north, but i skate here in florida now. and ive seen some pretty talented people here. Just because its different climates, doesnt mean someone cant skate. I mean….i wont lie…there are a lot of people who cant skate to save their life, but that doesnt mean others cant just because they live where its hot. We still have skating rinks 😛

  59. Alex Anthony says:

    LOL Simone fisher is like the coach Tina Harwood from Ice Princess and the girl demonstrating reminds me of Casey when she was demonstrating her toe loop on camera xD

  60. Haris Wilton says:

    omg..that was so dope.

  61. camcam2525rockon says:

    that was an ok jump but it was not the best sorry

  62. LuCkYimuncreative says:


  63. Sharon Newman says:

    people can be so nasty!

  64. asheea smith says:

    more like a toe waltz….but none the less. nice

  65. Peri Wilson says:

    she really isn't that good

  66. steve krull says:

    shes hot

  67. mysterycat333 says:


  68. mysterycat333 says:

    She doesn't even explain that usually when you are doing a toe loop, you start from doing an inside 3.

  69. Kailey says:

    okay, heres an easy way to explain the toe loop, do an inside three turn, put your toe pick in, and basically do a waltz jump kind of sort of. does that make sense? probably not.

  70. Kailey says:

    before you even do a DOUBLE toe loop. you have to learn your axel..soo yeahh..

  71. LuCkYimuncreative says:

    but that doesnt make it advanced!! that makes it learning the BASICS

  72. Kailey says:

    a toe loop isn't in basic. a toe loop is in like freestyle 3 or 4. i mean, i'm basic level 4, and i can do a toe loop, but thats just because im able to do more advanced stuff.

  73. LuCkYimuncreative says:

    maybe in isi but not usfs. a toe loop is in no way advanced. it also depends on how old you are. i know a 5 year old thats pretty advanced for her age considering she was trying axels once and can do the first few single jumps like toe loop and loop and waltz jump. if your five then sure its advaced. if your 10 then no its not. if your older then 11 and youve been skating for more than a year then you arent advanced, your behind.

  74. Kailey says:

    I've been skating since September. In no way whats so ever, are you behind if you've been skating for a year or more, you're just a slower learner. I am also part of USFS, and i'm low level. So for my low level (basic level 4), its considered advanced.

  75. LuCkYimuncreative says:

    think what you want, but its not advanced

  76. grace denali says:

    Ummm toe loops are def wayy too advanced for basic 4!! I mean yea, theyre easy, but not for some whoes only been skating for a fee months!! I learned mine after skating for about 7 or 8 months

  77. Gemma Perry says:

    check after the 3 turn, dont swing to much on it or go into a really large edge… also when you dig your toe in make sure you jump imediately and dont let your other leg catch up or you wont jump very much at all. but most of all dont be scared of it, just go for it! good luck hope this helps 🙂

  78. Bram van Meggelen says:

    Oh gosh…if this is the way of learning toe loop…no thanks. The toe loop is the easiest jump. the technique shown in this movie does gives to much movement in the upper body. No offence, I like the intention of making the video's for children or adults to learn the toe loop.

  79. Molly Krieger says:

    i have to disagree, because i am a figure skater in south florida & alot of my friends are figure skaters aswell. we're all very good. dont say all people in florida shouldn't skate, because we're just as good as people in the north. k thanks.

  80. Edmund Geswein says:

    Some have commented about the overly simple explanation of the jump. There's a lot of detail that can't be put into a few words, but the most important things to focus on are springing into the air and turning the hips. If the hips get around the foot will too. Salchow and toe loop is not exactly a waltz off the pick, but it's similar. These are all in the same difficulty range.

  81. Jose Pereira says:

    are you in the Basic Skills Program cause if you are, my daughter is learning this and she's on freeskate 2! Don't worry, though, you'll get it.

  82. Katherine Reber says:

    Honestly I don't even remember commenting on this video so to whomever I have offended– sorry.

  83. Noorah101 says:

    I'm learning the toe loop right now, and I came on here looking for some helpful videos. This one was just a video of a girl doing a fast toe loop. Not helpful for learning, sorry.

  84. koala bear says:

    i think she was being sarcastic

  85. Kamila Sinkevych says:


  86. Liz Speiser says:

    Her arms are not exactly right and she should wait a tiny bit after the three turn it make the jump look a bit sloppy, but it had great height and a nice landing. So overall a good jump it just needs a little tweaking and then it would be perfect 🙂

  87. Demi Alexandra says:

    it doesn't say 'how to do a toe loop' it just says 'the toe loop' so if you came here to learn you've come to the wrong place..

  88. Tara says:

    She jump high at all

  89. sk8snc1978 says:

    Bad example of a toe loop. The toe pick should never be place on the outside of the 3 turn. That's the lazy way of doing a toe loop. The toe pick should always go behind the 3 turn as if you're starting a back outside pivot.

  90. MsValentine00 says:

    Wow… can't believe it. I learned this jump through this video and now can do it better than she can. Yikes. 

  91. Natalie Monkevich says:

    She hardly even makes 1 revolution…

  92. Brooke McKenna says:

    I'm not trying to be rude but your suppose to start from backwards cross over and when you tap you foot in the ice you want to sorta Curtic but she didn't do neither of those things

  93. TheFantasyFen says:

    what the

    Toe loop isn’t hard😂😂

    Your supposed to teach us. then why do you do it so fast? D:
