    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.

    I am guessing you are working on delta or freestyle 1....
    I have no problem with bunny hops by themselves, but when I have to do a bunch in a row, I always am afraid I will fall on my face.

    I hate MITF, but if I have to pick one move in particular, I guess it would be the double toe. that jump is just strange.

    This reminds me of power classes, when everything comes in laps...
    Wholesale instead of retail

    Last time I took a power class I caught a toe pick, fell hard on my knee, I thought I was ok, but like a few weeks later, I could barely bend my knee without screaming in pain, I went to the ER haha

    I am sorry to hear that, icedancingnut31. Hope your knee is alright now... Nowaways I refuse to step on the ice without elbow / knee pads, gloves, and a padded winter hat.
    Back to topic: I hate falls in general :D they are surely considered an inseparable move in figure skating? LOL
