The best skin tip I've gotten is the one mmcpheet posted here. That folding technique is nice because it makes it easier to separate the skins, and you can start folding when half the skin is still stuck to the board (nice if it's windy out). Same thing applies when putting the skin on the board, you can do it one half at a time.

Scotty1974, about six months ago I was asking the same question about skins and skinning. Valued input from many on this forum guided me in the right direction. Jon Dahl and Tex recommeded I watch these:

Check these out they should help. Especially the one on how to turn uphill in a skin track

Thanks to everyone who has given me a tidbit, nudge or day out! Now I'm trying to pass a bit of it along.
