The 3 Toe Jumps Of Figure Skating
Out of the 6 figure skating jumps 3 of them are toe jumps! Can guess which ones they are?
If you said toe loop, flip, and lutz, you are correct! Let’s take a look at them!
First is toe loop. The right foot is on a back outside edge and the left foot is picking into the ice to propel yourself into the air.

This jump is commonly done from a 3 turn entrance but there are many variations of entrances that can be executed.

Next is flip. The left foot is on a back inside edge and the right foot is picking into the ice to propel yourself into the air.
3
With practice and a good single flip base, you can progress this into a double, triple, or even quad flip.
4
Last is lutz. This one is very similar to flip. The biggest difference is your left foot is on an outside edge.
5
It’s very important to get the outside edge, if it becomes an inside it is a flip and we call it a “flutz” when you don’t accomplish the outside edge.
