Sometimes the quickest and most controlled way to slow down is to throw a footbrake. Footbraking is key when you're riding close to other skaters and need to slow down without getting tangled up (which can happen easier if you throw a slide). We strongly encourage all riders (especially commuters and downhillers) to get comfortable footbraking at a variety of speeds.
Once you get the basics down, be sure to take your footbrake skills to the next level.
