Plow stopping is similar to t stopping, where a foot is floated across the floor. Harder wheels help invoke a slide.


You dont need to toe your skates in. A plow stop is more like forcing your legs into the direction of a split, from the heels. The idea is to laterally break traction. If you cant kick your feet out to the side to break traction youll likely have too much.

I remove some weight from my rear wheels and jut my heels out hard, causing them to break traction. You'll want to keep some bend to your knees so you can modulate the move.

Figure out when a good time for ya to go to a session is we'll work a day out. I like skating at castle and orbit.
