Video Skate Tutorial 1: Downhill brake

Starting this week Asha will be posting a weekly Skatefresh Blog Tutorial and this first tutorial is ‘How to heel brake downhill’. Each mini Blog Tutorial will look at a problem area of one skill, in this case, why do skaters still not stop downhill even when they have the heel brake on? Each Blog Tutorial comes from real skaters’ questions and queries and will range from Beginner to Intermediate and some Advanced skills. The tutorials are not an entire lesson, just the fixing of one specific or common ‘problem’ that arises with certain skills. We hope these mini Blog Tutorials help those stubborn skills.
