Really? What if you're not that good one side but OK? Isn't it best to concentrate on your good side so you learn the finer points/the mechanism of what's needed and can then apply that to the weak side?

I've been skating a year and apart from crossovers I don't do much on my weak side at the moment. I'll do a bit now and then on say stops or tight turns, but feel I'm better getting up to near full speed on my good side to make playing the game more feasible.

Sadly there are only so many hours a week to skate too and it feels there are so many skills to learn.
