Difficulty: Beginner. The turn stop (sometimes called a spin out or spin stop) can be used to slow yourself down at just about any speed. It will not shred you wheels and can be practiced on any surface. A properly executed turn stop will leave you facing the opposite direction which can be especially useful for hockey. You can explode out of them and get going in the direction you want. At first, when you are learning how to turn stop you might need a lot of room, but as you get better you won’t need much space at all. Watch the one minute video below to learn how to do a turn stop:
