    Which skating moves do you hate?

    Does anyone else have skating moves they are working on that you hate doing? They are so hard to do and you can never get them, that its frustrating?

    I feel waltz eights were invented by the spawn of Satan! I can never do them. Also in ISI we had the change foot spin in FS3 when I finally passed that stupid spin I was so happy!

    I hated loops when I was learning them. I don't mind them so much now that I no longer have to do them. The only thing I absolutely hate doing is the double toe loop. It's the most awkward, and evil jump. I can't for the life of me figure out the timing of it.

    My coach often asks me to do double inside 3 turns--but he wants them done differently than you'd do for Juv. moves (which I've passed)--it's a harder version of them and I hate them & even though I've been working on them for years I still can't do them anywhere near the way he wants them done. Bah!

    I need to do back 3 turns for my Freestyle 4 dance step and i can't do them whatsoever. Also I look like an idiot when I do a sitspin. I saw a youtube video of a figure skating monkey and that monkey's sitspin is better than mine.

    I hate the end pattern of Move #1 on the Novice MIF test. Inner to inner threes. Bleh!

    bunny hops. Evil!

    Our skating director was choreographing for a show and he wanted to put them in, we said absolutely no way would we do them.

    Next are back edges. Torture.

    Omg I hate those too. It hurts so much when I fall on the counter-clockwise ones because I usually turn clockwise. Getting the timing is the most evil part....

    The Lutz was my least favorite jump. I never did master it.
