Is the plane skipping or is the wood surface not flat? Whether or not the blade is sharp, the plane will seem to be skipping if there are dips or humps in the surface you are trying to plane. The longer the sole of the plane, the more skipping may seem. A long sole plane cannot follow the up and down contours of wood. This is pretty much basic when using any plane.
