Come to think of it, when it comes to hydroblade I always associate it with Yuzu (obviously) or Keegan. Are there any women doing a good hydroblade at the moment?

Hanul Kim. Her Ina Bauer is nice too :) 

 

Here is an example (around 3:54)

These are "Arigato gozaimashita" from Japanese men's skaters at JNats last December. Can you tell which "Arigato gozaimashita" is Yuzu's?

I've got it right! There's no way I miss his little tender voice of arigato :10636614:

Just some random Yuzu thing. :surprised_pikachu:

 

Seriously, how the hell is he so strong? He must have a core of steel.

I could identify Yuzu, Daisuke, Shun, and Ryuju, but detected multiple Keijis and Kazukis. :68468287:  Yeah, the softness of Yuzu's voice stands out among the older and taller guys here...

 

By the way, Shae can do hydro in both ways. I was thinking the same as Fay but I've just found this video while randomly watching Bourne/Kraatz videos

 

I love hydro with legs crossed. I wonder if it is more difficult than doing it in the other way or it just depends on one's physique.

Memory lane. Shae and Vic were always emphasizing their hydroblading moves. At the time I thought it was cool but thought they milked them way too much and overdid it in every program. I think the fluff pieces on Canadian tv about it annoyed me so much that I went firmly into the Anisina/Peizerat corner when it was between the 2 for medals. I would have appreciated it more at the time if it wasn't stuffed down my throat constantly. But, it is a cool move/technique and I will forever associate it with Shae/Vic although Yuzu has brought it back to popularity.

That slim, lean body is all muscle.  Even his ears.  We rarely see photos of his back or his bare legs - but his back is a stunning assembly of muscle and his knee caps have their own muscles.  Enviable - though he has worked on all of them for 20 years.

lol so fast! What's the message?

The top part literally spells ' HA-I-DE-RO' aka ' hydro' so it must be 'hydroblade' something. 

 

Also, re what he says to Miki...only Yuzu could tell a woman something like that and she'd laugh instead of being offended...

That's because from him, with all his PW and LGC winks and wiggles, they perfectly know there is no innuendo; and with all his murderfaces, that it is out of pure kindness.

How original! Did she choreograph it herself?

Now that you mention it... I don’t think I’ve seen any female skaters do it in competition

I think Evgenia tried one....but no one does such a beautiful hydroblade like Mr. Ninja!

It takes incredible control and strength and obviously balance which challenges even your top skaters!

There's a gif somewhere of Evgenia doing one in a gala -?
