Article Summary


Stopping on inline skates can be challenging, but there are a few techniques you can use to brake easily, even if you’re a beginner. The easiest way to break is to extend 1 leg out in front of you and bend your other leg as if you’re sitting down. The brakes on rollerblades are located in the back, so this will help you press the heel brake against the ground with your front foot. Once you start braking, continue to apply steady pressure on the brake until you come to a complete stop. If you’re not sure if you’ll be able to brake in time, try skating onto grass, dirt, or gravel to slow yourself down. Alternatively, straighten your arms in front of you and skate towards a wall. Then, carefully use your hands to absorb the impact. To learn how to do more advanced brake methods, read on!
