A jump, without rotation, from a LF to a LF with a right (r) toe-plant landing. Or can be done from a RF to a RF with a left (1) toe-plant landing. No edges required, but may be done on edges. The free leg swings forward on take-off. On landing, the toe-stop of the free foot takes the surface slightly ahead or alongside of the landing foot.

  • Toe Bunny Hop – Starting on a RF with the left leg extended in front, the left toe-stop hits the skating surface while the right foot simultaneously slides forward. The jump is off the left toe-stop with the right leg extended forward in the air. The landing is on the right toe-stop pushing onto a LF. No edges required, both may be done on edges. Can also be done vice versa.
  • Double Bunny Hop – Starting on a LF with free leg extended in back, the right leg swings forward while jumping at the same time. The left leg scissors forward in the air. The landing is on the left toe-stop pushing onto a RF. No edges required, but may be done on edges. Can also be done vice versa.
  • Back Bunny Hop – Same as the Bunny Hop except the movement is backward. The free leg swings backward on the take off, the toe-stop of the free foot takes the surface slightly behind or alongside of the landing foot.
