Any tips?
I had the same problem. I got over the hump by conciously turning that skate in and exagerrating my hips/butt when I started the stop. Then I just purposely stopped to that side everytime I was at an open skate for a while and before I knew it, I had both sides working the same. Now I'd say I'm probably even better stopping that way, which is good because I'm a right handed shot and I think the open side stop is more important than the closed side.
