I can understand it being a non-issue as I can feel it when it happens and lift a bit.
I've only been skating ice for a month and a half so I'm still trying to pick all of this up.
(note: acceleration is awesome, stopping without any thought is almost there and front/back transition flows with ease,
backwards is satisfactory but could use work.)
Can you sell me some magic beans too? I'm not going to address your supposed problems until you knock the b.s. off or call Ripley's and provide proof.
