It just takes practice, I'm just getting back into the game myself and it just takes time, you have to build up strength in your legs, ankles, everything. It'll come in time, just keep working at it.

Stronger ankles would help but you're not going to get that overnight. Just keep skating and that will come.
Your right, some people forget that a good knee bend aids in a better stride, its easy when your starting out to skate too upright.

My bad, great of you to suggest those things, nothing wrong with hearing them twice really . Oh and you said nothing about molding skates, get off the soap box, we're all here to help.
