In case you’re new to longboarding, picking the right longboard to begin with was most likely your first concern. Next need? The most effective method is to stop on your longboard and abstain from smashing and harming yourself when riding at any speed.
There are different methods you can use for dialing back or halting on your longboard. These reach from essential to cutting edge, simple to complex, possible at lower to higher velocities. If you want to know longboard braking, your alternatives are, from least demanding to profoundly specialized:
- Bouncing off your board and running it out
- Moving onto a harsh surface like grass
- Slowing down with the bottom of your foot
- Cutting turns down the slope.
- Sliding your longboard
1. Stop by bouncing off your longboard
If you’re cruising on a level surface at generally low speed, for example, 10-15 mph, the most straightforward and precise approach to stop on your longboard is to quit pushing and brave it, letting grating from the beginning. All you need is to have adequate room ahead.
- Or then again, in case you’re riding at about strolling speed, you can venture off and get your board. Vanity note:
- Kick down on the tail to tip your barricade.
- Get it with your hand.
- Leave looking cool.
2. Stop your longboard by moving onto the harsh surface
This is another easy decision, yet it’s as yet worth focusing on. While riding your longboard, moving on the short (like grass or rock) will dial you back or through and through stop you. This implies you need to pick a street with patches of grass or some gravel as an afterthought.
This works; however, how quick you can go relies upon the unpleasant surface close by. If it’s short grass you’re moving onto, you can go pretty quick given there’s sufficient grass surface. Be that as it may, going too quick onto thick grass will presumably make you tumble off as your board might arrive at a dead stop. Utilize sound judgment and start slow.
3. Foot slowing down for halting on your longboard
We should look at a somewhat more specialized methodology that most long boarders think about: foot slowing down. This is likely something you’ll wind up usually doing. However, two or three hints and deceives can assist you with getting on quicker and keep away from some normal (agonizing) messes up.
The main thing when foot slowing down is to figure out how to adjust on one leg (typically your front leg) by moving your weight onto it and bowing your front knee to bring down your back foot to the ground.
4. Cutting to dial back on a longboard
When riding down a slope, you might arrive at a speed where foot breaking becomes troublesome or even unsafe. You need to turn to more viable strategies for dialing back your longboard at this sort of speed.
Cutting is one of these techniques. It includes turning around and forwards while inclining “against the slope,” as though you need to go uphill. It’s like snowboarding, where you cut sharp turns in the snow across the slant to control your plunge.
5. Slide halting on a longboard
Sliding is a definitive slowing down procedure, but on the other hand, it’s the most complex and least secures until you completely ace it. Sliding is invigorating, fantastic looking, exceptionally specialized, and highly successful for dialing back and halting “in a very small space” (that one will rely upon the circumstance).
On the other side, sliding can obliterate your haggles (however more minor your shoes), can send you taking off your longboard on the off chance that you miss, and can cause harm in case there are swarms and additionally vehicles around you.
