|: Biff, if you have any hints on fakie, please post. I'm not too good at that.
My best tip is: Look where you are going. When you are skating forwards, look in the direction you are going, when you are skating backwards, look in the direction you are going. You need to look over your should then. You can get away without looking backwards, but then you are just adapting to a concrete situation knowing when you will hit a transition again. It's way more flexible to use your eyes.
