Default BRAKING!!!!!!!!!

Guys I have this huge problem....i can't brake down slopes, so I saw this video on youtube where people did this sort of parallel braking ski-style....I tried out but the wheels have too much grip....how can they do that!!?!?!?

You need to start on flat, with little speed, learn to turn & stop

then turn & slide & stop : slow motion

then same with more speed

then same skating down a slope

just step by step

I would really love to learn a skid stop. Like TWISTER II I find the wheels have too much grip and I go down. I don't know about just doing on the heels. I cannot even stay balanced on my heels or toes yet though I have adapted the ankle balance to a toe balance to work on every morning.

I did not find the frames very helpful, perhaps a video of skid stopping would work well.
