One of the easiest braking techniques to learn is the back-foot deceleration technique. It’s done by slightly lowering your stance, taking your back foot off the board, and using it to skid along the ground (you leave your front foot on the board and use it for balance and direction). You’ll slow down by skidding, and from there, you’ll gradually add more pressure to your back foot to stop completely.
If you need or want to stop quicker, put more pressure on your back foot but make sure you’re also handling the board well with your front feet, or else you’ll have an unexpected split, lol.
The downside of this technique is that you’ll ruin the soles of your shoes.
