In this detailed tutorial I give you 5 different progression exercises to help you safely learn and master the forward crossovers which are an essential skill for all intermediate and advanced level skaters.
Crossovers allow you to maintain speed or even accelerate on corners (where you would usually loose speed if doing Parallel Turns).
This video also shows the REAL REASON why your heel brake might ‘clip’ the other skate as you crossover…….and you may be surprised to learn what this real reason actually is. I hope however that now this cannot be used as a viable excuse for removing your brake!
Enjoy learning Crossovers!
