Essential Turning and Braking Methods:

Skateboarding involves the ability to turn and change directions smoothly. To execute a basic turn, shift your weight onto your toes or heels, depending on the direction you want to go. Lean slightly in that direction while bending your knees to maintain balance. Practice turning gradually to avoid losing control. When it comes to braking, a common method is using your back foot to drag against the ground. Gently press your sole on the ground until you come to a stop. This technique requires practice to find the right amount of pressure without causing your skateboard to skid or lose stability.
