are inline skates incapable of quick stops and sharp turns?

I'm pretty experienced on inlines and, well, bad on blades. However, even being garbage on ice I can still turn sharper... as the previous poster notes you eventually just blow a tire. Can turn sharper and sharp at faster speeds easier on ice.
Stops can still be done quickly on inlines, but you're going to use different techniques and, in my opinion, you need to be stronger on your legs. That said, the mistake a lot of people make on inlines at fast is trying too hard to break; you need a feather touch or you're gonna cause way too much friction way too fast and go flying. Best advice I'd have is to find some instructional vids on youtube or such for inline braking.
