Types of stoping
The Forward Powerslide Inside is one of the best and most effective ways to brake.
The main difference from the Backward powerslide is that at the moment of braking you clearly see the road in front of you. You don’t need to turn 180 degrees and then enter the slide.
This element includes Mohawk turn, after which you can do the Powerslide. But at the moment you do the Mohawk turn, your front leg enters the slide and then provides the braking, while the other leg is supporting.
To do the Forward Powerslide correctly, you need to be aware of some things:
1.The first: the angle that your leg forms should be very sharp, approximately 60 degrees; for this you need to bend down on your leg as much as possible.
2.The second: your weight should be shifted to your leg. Such a position will allow you to brake during gliding.
