American Sign Language: "ice-skate"

To sign SKATE as in I-C-E "SKATE"  form your hands into "X" handshapes.   Then put them in front of you, palms facing up.  Alternate moving them forward and back a couple times. 
Memory tip:  Think of the movement of a skater's feet. Think of the upturned "X" as representing the curved blade on the skates.



Here's a close-up of that handshape:
