THe pure fact that I can stop really quickly on ice and don't get sliced up like when falling on the asphalt makes ice safer for me as well.
I'm hoping to make the transition very soon, and that's what I'm most looking forward to. I used to ice skate a bit, not so much play hockey, so I keep wanting to stop quickly on the inlines and it just sucks to not be able to. Plus, yeah, I can never really go 100% knowing that the consequence of screwing up bad is falling on asphalt and getting ripped up.
Hopefully my comfort with transitions transfers to ice, because I've put a lot of work into that, and it feels great to nail it on the inlines.
