While skating forward I turned my hips to the right, trying to cut with left inside edge and right outside edge while bending knees deep. Usually I wound up falling on my right side, with skates sliding out forward, if that makes any sense.

And regarding stopping on inlines, I used to play a lot on a wood floor and sometimes I'd just skid a bit while stopping. I found it happened when my wheels were a bit worn or when experimenting with harder wheels. I don't really do it on the sportcourt used by my rec league, though I do see other players doing what looks to me like a hockey stop.

Thanks again!
Put more weight on the balls of your feet. Your feet slipped out forward because you put too much weight on your heels.
