Hi,

I saw the videos and based on the video I would suggest (you will have to take a final call) fix only the bottom face of the board, Use frictional contact between green pads and board. When you apply remote displacement then do you see rotation? One way may be to solve the model in 2 steps - in the first step apply the load at half the region of the red area (say toe region) and in 2nd step apply the load at half the region of the red area (heel region) and then you may see the rotation and also have a conservative design. Also, what if you model a dummy leg (rigid body) on the skate and then rotate it slightly (along with weight). In this scenario you will need to add additional contacts as well.
