It is really easy to pick up on ice because there is no friction...so you barely have to put any pressure on top of the puck to pick it up.
I was playing pick up roller the other day and when we where picking teams my buddy had a Jofa speed puck he was messing with.
He asked if I could pick it up like I do on the ice (I never tried it with one of these pucks).
After about 3-4 failed attempts, I was able to do it. Just alot more friction without the ice, so it isn't as easy. So it is possible, just have to apply more pressure or the puck will drag on the concrete.
