Skateboarding for Beginners Part 5: Pushing, Stopping, Bailing & Recovering

In our first video, first-time skateboarders learned how to safely step on and off their skateboard. The second video in the USSEA Learn to Skateboard Series helps beginner skateboarders master their stance and determine which foot will be placed at the nose of the board. The third video is all about adjusting foot position for better balance and feel while you skate. The fourth video gives some important movements and skills to practice before you start to roll around on your skateboard.

Part 5 in our Learn To Skate Series is all about pushing, stopping, and bailing off your skateboard. This is the part where you learn how to actually get going, and maybe more importantly, stop without having to crash. This video will show you how to stop, run, and roll off your skateboard then how to push your skateboard with stability, comfort, and confidence. Sounds cray cray but its a great idea to know how you’re going to stop that thing before you get rolling and fear takes over.


Keep children safe by providing a hand to hold the first time they step on a skateboard and as they gauge their skateboarding stance.
