How do you stop on a skateboard?

Learning To Stop

Knowing how to stop is just as important as knowing how to move. You can use either of these two methods. Put your weight on the tail so it drags along the ground, or take your back foot off and drag it lightly along the ground beside your board.

Pushing down on the tail is a bad idea because doing this damages the tail and you end up with a square tail
