Tutorial: Big Spinning Breakdown

Updated: Mar 18

by Mel @troubleon8wheels

Spinning. A skill that will get your head in a spin as well as your feet!

Here is the biggest breakdown I've ever done, combining all the experience I've had of learning and teaching spins.

This is the first spin most people learn on roller skates - a Heel Toe Spin.

The video is comprised of a number of different elements, each of which you can practise individually, before putting it all together.

Element 1: Heel toe manual

Element 2: Body position

Element 3: Heel to heel; toe to toe drill

Putting it all together!

As always, I implore you to be patient and kind to your self. This skill is about control over your roll, rather than a big fling and hope-for-the-best approach. I'd love you to be a skater who is consistent and confident.

If you don't have a membership to our website, you won't be able to access the video! We offer memberships at various levels, just head to our Join the Gang page to pick the right one for you.
