Is that a combo radius? I don't know a lot about that process save for the basic idea, which is intriguing.

Is it a rubbing sensation like friction? Or a pressure sensation? What skates are they?

It could be that the skate is too shallow for his foot, and with his instep protruding away from the boot, the laces cause excessive pressure on the tongue and foot. Also know as lacebite. The longer one has a skate, the more the tongue breaks down, reducing it's cushioning effect against pressure from the laces.

It could be that his tongue shifts when he skates. Moving the protective centre away from where it should be.

If it's a high end skate, perhaps the plastic insert has creased, creating a pressure point.

A lot of possibilities.
