How To: Turn while roller skating

Turn while roller skating

Raelle Cook provides skaters with the basics of turning while on roller skates. The first thing skaters need to know is they have to be skating at a comfortable speed and a comfortable position. The most comfortable position would be not to have your knees locked. The biggest mistake is attempting to turn while going to fast. To slow down you simply drag your toe stop. Turn your body in the direction you'd like to turn and look in the direction of the turn. Don't look in the opposite direction. Bringing your shoulders into the turn will give you control as well. Bring around your dominant leg, pick up your leg and drop it. To turn completely use your hips for momentum. Most importantly, have fun!
