FROM SKATELOG FORUM HOST KATHIE FRY IN MARCH OF 2020:
This announcement is to let everyone know that after hosting the SkateLog Forum and its predecessors for nearly 20 years, I have decided it is time to permanently turn the forum over to a new owner and administrator. I cannot think of anyone more suitable to take on that role than my SkateLog forum co-host, Florida skater Jessica Wright. I am pleased to announce that Jessica has agreed to establish and host a brand new skating forum, configured like the SkateLog Forum, but with a new name and a new Web Site. This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

NEW FORUM NAME: SkateDebate Forum
NEW WEB SITE: SkateDebate.com
NEW OWNER AND ADMINISTRATOR: Jessica Wright

Default Mohawks and 180 degrees

I am practising Mohawk turns but unlike our good friend Joe

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hwkbN844S0c

I am unable to get my skates in a 180 position whilst rolling (say right foot forward, left foot/toe facing backward, about 38seconds in). I can only get to around 150 degrees.

I can still do the mohawk turn, but can't skate along with feet facing different directions. Is this something you can work on (like yoga, get stretchier over time) or are there some people who just cannot skate like this due to their body shape?
