How to Stop while roller skating backward
In this how-to video, you will learn how to stop while going backwards on roller skates. This will help if you are going too fast and want to stop without falling. Make sure your knees are not locked and you are not going too fast. Take the dominant leg and position it slightly behind you. Next, apply firm but solid pressure on the stopper. Be careful not to place too much, as this will turn you around. Another way involves immediately going back on both stoppers. Your knees must be bent with your body in an upright position. Do not be afraid of falling. Viewing this video will show the safest and most proper way to stop on your roller skates.
