Then again ive been rollerblading/ice skating almost my whole life so it might just come natural to me. i honestly dont remember when i actually learned them, or if i just started doing it naturally one day.
You're splitting hairs. And we're talking about giving advice to someone trying to learn something for the first time.
I still stand by the advice that I was given and that worked for me: Keep your outside foot on the ice and focus on the "crossunder" of your inside foot.
