Your Skating Background!!

The board seems pretty empty, so maybe starting a new thread in skating will help! How long have you been skating? What is your favorite move/skill/jump/spin? What was difficult for you to learn? Are you in group lessons or private? Are you with USFSA? What tips or advice do you have for other skaters? To answer my own questions, I skated for around half a year, but I do not currently take lessons. I really enjoyed learning how to do two foot spins (yay!!), bunny hops, and waltz jumps. It was super hard to learn how to go backwards, but now it is like second nature. Also spin entries were hard because of my back posture. I did group and private lessons and I was with USFSA!! My advice for skaters is to practice like crazy!!! You can never have enough ice. And if anyone is wondering when to take private lessons, I would say right around the time you are learning back/front walkovers and beginning jumps. You may not get enough attention in group lessons and then have a really bad technique!

Well, it's been about a year and a few months since I started skating, but for several of those months I wasn't in lessons and very rarely skating (only every few weeks). Right now, I in group lessons (ISI Learn To Skate). I'm only in Delta (the level where you learn inside 3-turns and bunny hops, etc.) I probably would have passed it already if not for those stupid inside 3-turns :( I'm teaching myself to do more advanced stuff though,like waltz jumps and scratch spins because I'm too impatient to wait. Scratch spins are probably my favorite move, even though I can only do them really slowly. I don't really have much advice except never give up.

I am 6 time world figure skating champion. My biggest trick is a quad sowcow tripple axel landing reverse leg fly away. And a falling leaf split jump, into toeless lutz delayed axel half loop. I have been a world competitior for 7 years, and have been titled as the most talented figure skater in North America.

I'm not a skater, just lurk the boards. I have been skating a few times, it was so much fun. Unfortunately there's no opportunity to ice skate where I live.
