Skating is one of my favourite things to do, so getting to combine frisbee with skating is pretty incredible. Living near the Rocky Mountains gives me some unique opportunities since there are so many lakes and the wind off the mountains keeps them clear of snow in the winter time. I normally don’t get to go skating on a lake this early in the season so it was a pretty special day to get in some frisbee on ice at both Gap Lake and Ghost Lake.
I’m throwing a Wham-O Frisbee FB6 Fastback from The Wright Life. A frisbee similar to the one I’m throwing actually set the MTA World Record in 1984 when Don Cain threw an MTA 16.72 seconds (Maximum Time Aloft – the thrower must catch their own throw).
I currently hold 3 Guinness World Records and 3 WFDF World Records for Self Caught Flight on ice skates.

Self Caught Flight is one of the disciplines recognized by the World Flying Disc Federation (WFDF), who are the global body which governs the sport of flying disc (frisbee) and were officially recognized by the IOC in 2016, with the goal to have frisbee in the 2028 Olympics.
