I believe that the more successful stopping methods you have available to you, the more comfortable and safe you will be on your skates, whatever your ability level. Having options and choices of stops to use will (with practice) lead to you making intelligent decisions about which methods to use in which circumstances.
Here is a short video tutorial on what I have named the ‘L’ Stop. This is useful slow/medium speed stop which can be linked together with other stops (such as slowing down using the T stop or consecutive parallel turns first).
Do let me know in the comments below how you get on learning this stop. If you have any problems I’ll try and help you out. Good Luck with the ‘L’![pl_video type=”youtube” id=”KoXTP_F_-sc”]
