Ever go to the beach and run in the sand? Then decide to get your feet wet a bit, so you run at the edge of the waves that wet the sand, then go a bit deeper and your body outruns your feet, because the water is dragging your feet back?

Same goes with skating on rougher surfaces. The rougher it gets, the more resistance that your feet will see.

I can skate on some ridiculously bad terrain with any of my skates, grass, packed gravel, trails. Etc.

The more resistances in the skating surface, the less gliding you will do, and the more laterql hopping from foot to foot.

Franklin skating rink is near you, the DJ there is a very good skater. May want to go to a session there. Good floor too.
Home rink: Roll-A-Rama in Huntington Wv.
