Skate stride problem

So im not that new to hockey but ever since i got proper fitting skates ive been making leaps in my skating the only issue is when i go from a quick start with short powerful steps to my longer strides i keep slipping and edge when ever i try multiple long strides at high speeds.

So my question is, can anyone suggest on how to work on it? iI know its not my edges because i get my skates sharpened after every 6 skates.

Look forward to any suggestions

Did you get your new skates profiled?

Is it both skates/legs doing this, or is it an single leg thing maybe you have a nick on one side?

Maybe when you're transitioning to the longer strides you aren't digging in properly with your pushing leg? That's a common thing I've seen in people I've taught to skate.

When they shift from the short choppy strides on take off, their balance is too "in the middle" and they don't engage their whole body in their stride and they flail about for a bit, with their pushing foot slipping out.

Hope that description makes some sort of sense...

That kinda makes sense except i doon really flail around so much as have to build up speed again, its annoying because it slows my momentum im building up skating.. Any ideas on how i can fix it the slipping out part makes sense to me.

Try and really exaggerate your knee bend when you're skating. Sit down lower to get more weight into your strides.
