In answer to a constant (and understandable!) demand for tips on stopping, I have written many articles over the years about that as well as preventing unwanted speed while skating. I think this skill is so important to your comfort on skates that I have decided to consolidate all of my articles to date on this one page. Written both for scared beginners and experienced folks, the articles linked below are the sum of a decade's advice on one of my favorite topics. Enjoy and may you never have to bail!
