Attention new skaters!
You look ridiculous trying to reach your outside skate out in front of you to cross it over your inside skate because someone told you you needed to do crossovers in the corners but damn if this doesn’t seem like a waste of energy and really really awkward and unstable and slow….
Stop thinking about this as crossing over. Tilt your bodyweight forward, focus on crossing UNDER with your inside leg, and let your body weight fall naturally onto your outside leg which should now be right under your centre of gravity.
Less over, more under. Inside leg. Inside leg. Inside leg.
There. that’s better. You’re welcome!
