Most likely, it's a bad or dull edge. Whenever I run into this problem, it's a sign my skates haven't been sharpened in way too long. It could also possibly be a boot that is too soft for your weight (if you're a very big guy and it happens on both feet) or even bad ice. A mismounted holder could cause it, but it's unlikely you would only experience this problem as a result.

I'm about 6'0" and 180 on Bauer Vapor 6's from '02. Ice in San Diego isn't awesome but like I said it's a very occasional problem.
