Moving backward

Backward swizzle

If you want to master effective ways of rolling backwards, such as criss-cross and backward powerskate, you need to master the Backward Swizzle.

So, the shape your rollerblades leaves while performing such a movement should resemble a hourglass form, that means your legs are moving apart, then they come together, and again moving apart.

Start this movement from the stance “legs together,” your heels point a bit to the sides and your toes touch each other. Having slightly bent your knees in the narrowest place of the “hourglass,” start pushing, straightening your legs. Such a pushing helps you gain speed.

To make the maneuvering easier, and tracing the necessary arcs, slightly shift your weight to the front wheels of the rollerblades.
