Types of stoping
The T-stop is the best but the simplest and most convenient way of stopping.
It doesn’t matter whether you are rolling at high speed or rolling slowly, Т-stop is the most convenient way of reducing speed or braking. Besides, while braking, you don’t lose your balance.
To do this element, you need to shift your weight to your supporting front leg and glide with your other leg on the ground and slightly touching it. Keep your rear leg that doing the braking perpendicular to the other one.
The most important thing is to remember that you don’t need to shift your weight to the leg that brakes too much, because it should touch the ground and be perpendicular to the movement, thus providing the braking.
