Tips & Warnings
Focus on the feeling of making these turns from the sides of the skate wheels and visualize a similar, non-skidding movement.
Keep all four wheels of each skate on the ground throughout each turn.
Look ahead at least half a turn to anticipate your move.
When you are comfortable doing this balance exercise, you can even add ski poles to synchronize your pole-plant timing with your turns.
Be comfortable using in-line skates before attempting this exercise.
Be sure to use protective wear while in-lie skating.
Keep your speed under control, especially if you are skating on a mild grade.
You don't need to get close to the cups or cones as you would on a skiing slalom course, but concentrate on make full rounded turns.
Watch out for leaves, cracks in the pavement or small stones which could trip you up.
