Hockey Players try Red Bull Crashed Ice Track for the first time WITHOUT Practice!

It won’t matter because the ice that’s kind of soft it’s even like no sharpening your Sunday They’ve never been wrong or like matter. Yeah Yes can I’m gonna do behind you sweat get you Jersey and get a shot of it, you know Well, I’ll just wait here yo how you feeling we got a lot of lottery oh, yeah I lost a garden really he’s got it. He’s got it Oh man, we’re like no you get our trainer followers just great idea but deeper. Oh Wait, I was gonna say guys get back on get back on.

Could you please help us to the picture quickly? Sure before we get like towed off. Thank you Take a knee On this course actually all of you the big one Let yourself fall no need to jump off running get their flat stance. Let yourself fall off them if they have a little lip What’s to love you going on the 3-way and a three-year-old it was last? Jump before that lifter what not? Long stretch goes down down and the last – oh Yeah, holy cow, oh just know that when you jump off His speed is your friend Well, you don’t want to like stop right before it let’s do the wave harder if you slow down Like This this is a hard job You’ve seen this like obviously wanted out last one down How much each other on that one, okay, so the only one you dis recording I would stop and look Around that corner at the bottom Just go up to it looking at it then skate backwards a little bit and go off cuz that one you can literally just fall Off and it’s like right there These other ones you have to have speed to catch the landing So I wouldn’t think too much more anything just go down to have fun. You’re gonna fall like It doesn’t matter Just be cognizant. You don’t want a full cage on like keep those hands in front Like if you’re gonna fall keep that, you know It’s very rare If I think more like very rare I’ve ever like even base plan and ever and you just don’t fall like that But you guys just keep that in mind That turn night so, you know, you spend your whole life playing ice hockey get used to it You get up to a high level and you come out here You think it’s a natural habitat and you get the jumps and drops and your human instinct just tells you don’t do it Okay, hey man, like you got to try something once in your life right If you get a chance to do one of these things or even just come to a field to see it’s likely an ice rink Or this track you got to try and do it. It’s all about the experience and like as a hockey person This was like playing for the first time again that same thrill. It was amazing it’s absolutely terrifying going down that track like the in the videos the drops don’t look that bad and when you go up to the edge, it’s just like It’s scary to go down like it It’s peer pressure to get us to go down. That’s the only way to go. It was absolutely terrifying Wow, yeah, yeah. Yeah Jesus I came and again drawn Get soaking wet. Yeah, this is gonna go So don’t slow down over these, right He makes it look so easy like he got to the top of the vert ramp that’s insane Oh slide off, nope Oh go for it man We’re going yeah, I’ll go next This brutal right do ya think so. Oh, yeah, I’m drenched man The camera is absolutely terrifying. Yeah it is it is we good. I’m like, I’m terrible Yeah, I couldn’t get to go down it but then I went down that and it fell okay Even ago you have to just skate. They said like you just don’t stop So the question is what is it like going down a crushed ice track for the very first time one word terrifying Okay We thought that we would get on it. Like we all can skate. We all can play hockey We thought we just get on it and sail down a couple of us would fall But you get to the the edge of a drop and your body just freezes and says no that’s that’s what happened to us There’s more than six feet of just ice and a drop It’s the most scary thing that I’ve ever done in my skates But it’s been so much fun if you ever get the chance to come out here and see the sport better if you ever get a chance to do trials or Tryout please make sure that you do because this thing is sick and aside from that So much respect and admiration for the players that play the sport because it is so hard Those divots you want to land on that. You don’t want to learn fully in the ramp All those little marks then you want to clip the top You just have to go in your car the sucks and hit the boards Hummus Okay In those videos Watch your head dude, you can’t be Try to go out there, but she’s got it Ready who’s under 25 go Dine me got another day guys.

  1. This is foreign territory for any hockey player a completely unique animal. Only thing remotely close to this that I've done is downhill and then you are landing on at least 3" wide skis and not sheer ice.

  2. “You’re human instincts tell you not to” that’s what it felt like when I went to the skatepark for the first time when I was riding the ramps

  3. Competitive hockey pretty much my whole life. Its just like anything else, you get used to it and gradually get better and better with practice. One thing I will say/type is, I think the guys in the video spent too much time over thinking it. Its really NOT thattttt hard. Don't psyche yourselves out lol. Just take it easy and have fun with it. During actual races you don't have any time to slow down and freak yourselves out, you just GO FOR IT! That's what makes it work. There's not much that can really happen on that track anyways. It looks pretty safe. Fun vid tnx for sharing it.

  4. Love all the comments from people who clearly never tried action sports of any kind. Skating isn't hard. Throwing your weight around to compensate for your angle to the ground is a lot harder.

  5. This is more like skiing on ice skates. It’s not something you can try once. You have to train for it and build up the confidence to do the jumps. Just like skiing you start with the small jumps and move up to the next level. I think it’s very dangerous for these hockey guys to try it without proper training. Many took head hits on the ice. Now you see the skill needed for the guys that race in the Red Bull circuit.

  6. I participated in Red Bull Crashed Ice Quebec in 2009. Nothing prepares your for skating on slopes. Huge respect for the athletes that compete regularly in the Red Bull Crashed Ice events. Being a good skater doesn't have any correlation to staying on your feet. It was an amazing experience and I definitely utilized the Crashed portion when competing.

  7. As is par for the course in the Youtube comment section, we've got a bunch of professional armchair coaches who are more than willing to let everyone know the precise algorithms and mathematical angles they should have used to jump and skate perfectly, how much skill these guys have, and how they themselves would have done it soooo much better…..

  8. I probably couldnt even walk through this course with slip resistant boots on! Sucks that the camera doesn't do justice on the grand scale of this! This is insanity! How did they even freeze the ice like that??!!

  9. i used to play hockey when i was young and i remember goalies being crazy lol and that goalie went full yolo haha 11:30

  10. Gotta lower your center of gravity. Bend the knees and lean slightly fwd on the landing. Also speed is the key here because slowing down and stopping is what was preventing them from clearing the gap cleanly.

  11. Guys… try it yourself and then say things like "they can't even skate". The ice is different, the terrain is different and they are not used to this kind of skating (you use your knees much more etc). So shut up with these insults, thanks

  12. How odd that going from totally flat ice to something more like a skateboarding flow course would be difficult.

  13. I think the major problem they have is caused by the fact, that hockey has horizontal oriented environment. To avoid falling down on the ice, they should lean towards the slope. I experienced the same, years ago, learning how to use half pipe while being on my rolleskates. When you are on the top, you have to lean forward, otherwise you land on your butt, I think its very similar here. Leaning towards the edge is against your body balance, and routine, because mostly your body recognize that as a painful fall, which is about to happen. I remember that overcoming your fear was the hardest thing to do before i successfully learned the trick.

  14. All of you guys are hating but you don’t realize that these guys play a sport, they don’t go down hills of ice a lot

  15. You know this is a serious sport when the most experienced dude coaching everyone is wearing a Prestige Worldwide jersey

  16. these hockey players now understand what a first timer feels like when they step onto the ice rink…. the fear of slipping.

  17. I'm sure these guys are good skaters… but once you start bombing tracks and going off drops.. you're in extreme sport territory now.

  18. This is one of my favourite sports to watch, its so insane how good to experts are! Flying through corners without fear. So cool to see you guys do it.

  19. Finnish referee dancing. Ice Hockey referee dancing to 70's style disco. The actual hand signals are turned into cool dance moves.
