RollerbladeRollerblade Skate to Ski program phase 2 / 02 / angulation turns
from Rollerblade on 10 Jun 2024 skate turns should now feel very similar to your ski turns. Deep flexion, dynamic energy, and direction control on a slope define successful angulation turns. Experiment with how deep a carve you can make with hips dropped into the turn and legs outside your body.As mentioned previously – respect gravity. Take on increasingly steeper slopes only when you are 100% confident in your ability to slow and stop yourself. Finding the right slope is essential for this drill. Too little will prevent momentum needed for continuous turns and deeper angulation. Too much slope will make this too difficult and potentially cause a loss of control.
