I could see the videos in the USA, just had to wait 15s for the ads.
Your friend has a very nice TI stroke. A little bit too much rotation, it shows in the skate video. You want to rotate just enough to get the shoulder out of the water. His balance is nice but maybe too low in front, head looks underwater. So he might be able to spear less deeply at this point. Most people have the opposite problem, with sinking feet, so the deep spear isn't a requirement. Could use a little less knee bend.
Interesting to see in the second video of skating that the left knee is straight and stiff, where the right knee bends and flows more naturally.
Great work out there!
