What boots are you using with the NNN-BC bindings? Are those Crispi boots? Alfa Skarvet? Garmont Finse GTX? Great work with the video. You have a talented eye for editing.

Thank you Sir. Your videos and especially this one made me think. The branches under the ice stuck in there peacefully , the reflection of the trees in the frozen lake. The white spots on the ice and the speed is like shooting stars or even a gate to the unknown. You are a free man. I really enjoy your videos

Wonderful work. You’ve got yourself a new subscriber. Loved the transition image from river to pond. Can’t wait to try this here in New Hampshire USA.

Came here because of the song “I wish I had a River” and wondered what skating on a frozen river looked like. Are your skates special for the river terrain?

Beautiful ride, beautiful lake at the end! Erik, why do you carry this stick with you?I've seen another nordic skating film, and the other person also had a stick like that... is it to test the ice, if necessary? to stay stable?
Erik Normark (3 months ago)
Thanks Marie. Yes it's important to test the thickness here and there with the stick, just to be safe.
altewu (3 months ago)
A really speedy video, Eric! I have never seen someone skating down a small frozen river before. Did you check out the course before? Or did you go on that obstical race without any precautions, just on sight?
Erik Normark (3 months ago)
Thanks Uwe. I checked the ice first to be sure the whole way.

Wonderful ice skating footage! Hello Erik, I am a researcher at WooGlobe and we’re interested in a potential paid licensing opportunity for this video. Please email me at [email protected] or reply me with email and I can explain further with more details. Thanks!

I had seen in movies people skate in frozen lakes but not in a frozen river, maybe it is very common in some countries, but not in mine, Thanks Erik excellent video ..
Bob Walker (3 months ago)
Can you tell me about the stick? Is it wood with a metal point? Self Made? Thanks!
Erik Normark (3 months ago)
Yes it's a wood stick with metal point i put together. Very simple but effective.

What kind of skates are those?
David Dermott (3 months ago)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ice_skate#Touring_skates The common name in North America is "nordic skates". I have the same brand of skates: Almgrens. Lundhags (big outdoor clothing company) took over the Almgrens brand in about 2003. There are several other brands made in Sweden, Finland and Netherlands.
Geraldine Fields (3 months ago)
I LOVE this video. This is the coolest thing ever and I understand the dangers. I have never seen anyone skate on a frozen river, only just on a pond. It was amazing when you skated onto the lake. You have such fun! Thank you for filming and sharing it with us.

I loved this video! So cool to be blasting through the woods in near silence. 😊 Tell me, at what point do you know the ice is safe to skate? Or do you just take spare clothes along just in case???? 😂
Erik Normark (3 months ago)
Thanks. I always check thickness with the ice stick here and there. I prefer if it's more than 5-6cm
