    This is an interesting poll, I picked the layback spin ( particularlly Cohen, czisny, nikadinov and mirai). After that I'd pick spirals then jumps.

    I also like just a glide, those kicks chan does, and kwan's one foot skating.

    None of the above. Just not into tricks. The novelty wore off years ago.

    I love watching men do split jumps, Ina Bauers, spreadeagles, etc when they can do them well.

    I think you've got to have God given open hips. I never had a good spread eagle.

    I adore a slide spiral and always seem to be anticipating and willing to make one happen when watching a likely skater.

    Throw triples (and throw quads) in pairs

    Quad combinations in mens skating

    Layback spins- all varieties, but I miss the classic layback position
