How to Stop on a Skateboard by Aria

You are awesome!! You are flying and doing great but now comes the next step…

STOPPING!

First step, get back on your board and glide along until you want to stop. Balance on your front leg. Keep your front leg on the top 4 screws of the board and foot pointing straight ahead.

Lift your back leg as though you are about to kick off except this time drag your foot lightly. Then bend your front leg slightly and drop your back foot flat onto the ground. Great job. Whether you got it on your first or 51st try, it doesn’t matter. Just keep trying and you will eventually get it.
