Okay, I thought that a triple toe walley is basically a different entrance for a toe loop (front outside three and a change to the landing foot rather than a plain front inside three on the landing foot).
But some people on another thread were claiming that some skaters take off from an inside edge from the landing foot and cited Elaine Zayak, I looked at a video or two and didn't see it by the time of takeoff she looks like she's on the standard RBO edge and the toe-walley is in fact a toe loop (why they were merged in the first place).
My problem is I totally don't understand how or why a skater would take off from an inside edge. I can imagine the change to the landing foot could use an inside edge but I can't understand how (or why) that could be maintained until take off (since all the physics of reaching back with the free leg would pull the skater over to the outside edge. In other words, it seems like trying to skate in a clockwise circle on a RFI edge, which is either impossible or awful technique.
Where am I going wrong?
Can someone point to a video of an unambiguous back inside take off?
