Same, I always had 100% of my stopping force on the outside leg. The stops some guys do where they come to the bench and lift their forward foot up and stop on the outer edge of their inside skate just amazed me. I've been practicing it a bit though at public skating, holding onto the boards and trying to focus on evening it out. I can see it developing, on one side anyway.
