episode 2 - braking

In this Enuff academy, Geoff will be teaching you how to slow down and stop while riding.

We'd like to say a big thank you to ATBShop Skate Warehouse for letting us film in their park and Geoff from Rubicon for his time and expertise.

things to remember

  • Do not push your tail straight down to brake as this will cause wear

  • Take your back foot and step just ahead of the board

  • Using your back foot, apply pressure to the ground to slow down and stop

  • Do not step your back foot behind the board

powerslide

  • Use your back foot to pivot the lighter, backend around
