SkatefreshAshaWizard Skating: Backward inside 3 Turn (Lion) practice, Gazelles, Transitions & Crossover Flow.
from SkatefreshAsha on 21 Oct 2022

In this short Flow I’m drilling and practicing the backward inside 3 turn (Lion) several times (without the assisted toe wheel ‘Cheetah’ version). I started properly using the back inside edge to create the “cusp” and “3” shape of the turn and this makes the backward to forward transitions less scary.If you try to do Lions & 3 turns on straight lines it leads to a lot of added difficulty and extra challenge. The secret to wizard skating is having the control and steering ability to do clear curves forwards and backwards that lead into and out of the different transitions, both forwards and backwards. Check out the curviness of the flow. That’s what makes it look so smooth.I’m wearing Powerslide Eve boots with Endless Blading 4×90 rocketed frame.Who is Asha Skatefresh?
