Reassuring I'm not alone, but we needa get this down!
I have a stomp pad. It kinda only helped while skating when I decided to put my foot up and cruise, but not while hopping down. I think I fall cause the transition is too sudden and I don't prepare quick enough. I'm about 5"2 with long legs lol.
One thing that did kinda help was holding onto the lift bar when I touched ground. I held on until somewhat balanced. But that only worked when I got balanced fast enough it didn't move out of my reach on it's own.
