Hydroblading is so popular !

Bourne & Kraatz the inventors of hydroblading, and the most awesome Hydrobladers and Icedancers ever!
So many Skaters are Hydroblading, and not just ice dancers, there are pairs, and even singles skaters. I think it's really wonderful that they are because I love Hydroblading. Once I saw a poll that asked this question Do you think Hydroblading should be a copyrighted move, that only Bourne & Kraatz can do ? I hope that never happens because I think its nice that so many skaters are doing Hydroblading, because if everybody wants to do it, that must mean that Bourne & Kraatz have come up with something really special and that means that Vic & Shae are very special skaters. And plus they will be remembered forever if skaters are always doing Hydroblading, because if people see Hydroblading in say 40 years from now, they'll say," that's a Bourne & Kraatz move" or "Bourne & Kraatz invented that".
Below I put together a list of all the Hydrobladers I know of, when I find new Hydrobladers, I'll add them to my list.

In their OD Irina & Ilia do that Slinky kind of Hydroblading, which is one of Vic & Shae's best moves. They are the first, apart from Bourne & Kraatz, to try this type of hydroblading. They have all sorts of other Hydroblade like moves in their OD too.
