Basic Skating Moves, Turning, Breaking, Stopping, Starting
You operate it basic of the skating they are trés, namely by order of importance: to brake, to start and to turn. Until we have not managed to feel comfortable on a few skates doing these three things, we can forget to practise any of his many forms: hockey line, hockey skate, artistically, aggressively or urban, career or speed, marathon, freestyle, etc.
Here we will learn at least the theory of three maneuvers, on account of the reader it stays, of course, to go out to the street with the skates to be practised.
Brake with Skates
Braking is undoubtedly the most important maneuver of all. Often the difference entity be shocked or not to be shocked, to fall down or not to fall down, is to brake on time. This is something that even skaters veteranso must not forget: it is always possible to brake better and more rapid. That's why if we want to be able to skate safely we must learn to brake with skates as soon as possible.
The brake: the skates in line have incorporated a house brake, normally in the only one of the skates. This is the called block brake. It is necessary to say that not the whole world uses it, it is a personal election. Those skaters who do not use the block brake he is because normally they use it braking skill in T . Anyhow, although normally we use one or other, it is always good to learn to brake with both. And more specifically, it is good that the skaters who brake with block learn to to brake in T .
To brake with the block, we move forward the skate that has it installed, flexionando in the process the knees. To gain stability, it is good to move forward the arms ahead. In this moment, most of our weight must relapse on the backward leg with which we are not going to brake. Once we are in this position, raise the top of the anticipated skate that has the block, doing force with the heel until we see that the block rubs the soil, and let's observe that we begin losing speed. The first times, it brakes gently and especially, especially, do not drop your weight in the skate that it brakes, so if you do it you will brake very sudden and the fall this insured.
To know more on as braking with skates, I have an article about like braking in T with skates in line that perhaps you find interesting.
Start with Skates
Braking is important: but starting is undoubtedly more entertaining! Once we could already brake safely, we will have to learn to start quickly.
To start we will have to, setting off from stopped, turn one of two skates approximately 90 grades with regard to the march direction and to impel you on. One notice that, on having had it inclined in 90 grades, the wheels will not roll, we being allowed to impel us so. During everything what the propulsion lasts the weight of the body will have to relapse on the anticipated leg. While we push ourselves in the soil with the skate in 90 grades, we will see as another skate advances ahead, simultaneously that the leg that it impels is stretching. If we stretch it quickly we will be able to reach big speed.
When we have stopped giving an "armful" or mejro saying, "stride" or "an impulse", we will put the skate that remained behind again parallel with other and we will be able to advance enjoying the obtained speed until we brake or the obtained impulse finishes us. On the other hand, we can impel ourselves again in the soil with the opposite leg and gain even more speed top.
Turn with Skates
Turning is the following thing that we must learn. To turn with skates in line we will have to move forward first the skate of the side of that this let's want to turn, and a time done, to turn the leg moved forward towards the side that let's want to turn, accompanying it on the body on having inclined this one towards the interior of the curve.
In certain way, we can say that the sensation is that a skate, the interior, "strip" of other to turn.
There exists another way of turning that it consists of crossing a leg on other one, it is more difficult enough but it has many advantages after you are allowed to turn and to impel you simultaneously in the soil.
