Stops, Slides & Slopes 1 Skate Lesson Sat 8 Oct 2022 @ 1400-1600
Location: The Boathouse, Serpentine Road, Hyde Park, Central London
The most important of ALL skills on inline & roller skates is how to stop and every skater should have several, high functioning stopping methods in their repertoire (to avoid accidents and injuries). This workshop looks at the easier stops, while “Stops, Slides & Slopes Level 2” looks at the more challenging methods.
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, crossovers and street skating.
What you'll learn;
- Plough Stop (2 versions)
- T-Stop (so that it actually stops you)
- Turn Stops (various options)
This 2 hr workshop is NOT suitable for beginners, who should focus 100% on mastering the Heel Brake Stop or Toe Stop Drag before any other methods. Check out our Improvers Group Class for that.
YOU WILL NEED TO BRING YOUR OWN SKATES, WRIST GUARDS AND KNEE PADS AS THESE ARE NOT SUPPLIED BY SKATEFRESH
