    I`ve noticed that also.
    Hanging on to the wall is not really fun.
    If they pushed themselves away from the wall then just keeping your balance is as easy as walking but with long glides between pushes.
    You see people fall when they try to stand still, but are rarely seen falling while skating.
    I`m from the Great White North & as a kid we`d flood our back yard & the neighborhood kids would come & play hockey.
    Once, the town flooded the complete baseball field & it then became an annual thing.
    They`d use the PA system in the summer for baseball & play music in the winter.
    Skating on a baseball field was quite amazing.
    I also skated on the great lakes chasing fish under the ice while ice boats zipped by just flying.
    I`m also a skier & have been since childhood.
    Here`s a ski bum shot taken about 15 years of beard growth ago.


    The nice thing about SoCal is this is about an hour away from Malibu.

    I`m already against the next war.
