The hollow wont help much compared to proper technique. You need to learn how to be comfortable getting low, and really leaning into the stop.
You also have to properly transfer your weight, to make it a stop / turn at the same time. You have to use both your feet.
Think of stopping like that similar to a sharp turn on a street bike, some of those guys are almost touching the ground with there elbows.
You have to be really comfortable with your edges, to stop like that. I did a beginner video and article on this you can see it here

here are both the videos
