Anyhow the issue is I can't get turned back arround smoothly. I have tried a multi step more dace/stepping count and that works at very slow stopped speed but not while moving. I have tried kinda the opposite going heel to heel again picking up one skate to get heel to heel then rotating out on the heel of the other. That has worked best, but any links or explainations done better than mine that can explain what to do?


This is a good visual.
I think you should get comfortable going forwards, all wheels down, just scissors, moving the legs around and doing tight turns, slowly, drop your butt, better balance and more leg movement, then start doing that going backwards, before you know it you'll forget about transitions.
