I am having trouble learning how to make that large sound when hockey stopping (on rollerblades). This is INLINE Hockey. I got labeda gripper wheels, extra soft, and they are very nice and grippy on the sport court I play on (marple sports arena - indoor).
I can do turns and right now I simply just do a sharp turn, my left leg goes forwards, turns right, and my right leg is "perpendicular" to my left. I am right legged all together.
Can anyone explain how to make that sound? is my form incorrect?
if you mean like in ice, where you stop and ice goes all over, you cant really do that in inline (obviously not the ice part) without really messing up your chassis. Ive found that hockey stops arnt the best way to stop while on wheels.
For roller it is about balance. Obviously if you are too high (over your skates) the second you turn them sideways you will flip over. On the other hand if you are too low (towards the ground) you will slide like you are stealing second base. You really just need to practice it and commit. Some people only do it with one foot and have the other foot turned towards the direction they are trying to change to (opposite direction than they were going).
Make sure you have some strong ankles because I don't want you rolling one and getting ****ed up on my account
