Stops and Slides – 5th June 2021 – FULLY BOOKED
Sorry! - Fully Booked
Location: Trax Skatepark, Beversesteenweg 67A 8800 Roeselare
The most important of ALL skills on skates is how to stop and every skater should have several high functioning stopping methods in their repertoire. We begin with the easier stops and work through to the more complex ones.
The majority of skaters do not realise that by neglecting their stopping methods they not only increase their risks of falls and injuries but also reduce their learning of other skills such as speed skating.
This workshop is NOT suitable for beginners (who should focus 100% on mastering the Heel Brake Stop before any other methods).
In this class you will learn;
- Plough Stop (2 versions)
- T-Stop (so that it actually stops you)
- Turn Stops (Parallel Turn and Lunge Turn variations)
- Powerslide (forwards and backwards entry)
- Combining Stops into functional sequences e.g. T-Stop into Plough stop, Turn slalom into T-Stop into Powerslide.
