Backwards Skate: Best Video Tutorial

If you are trying to master the art of backwards skating but you feel stuck, that's ok! We totally get it.

One common technique is making 'bubbles' - but for some skaters, that doesn't feel super natural or comfortable. 

Enter Richard Humphrey.

Richard is a self-taught rollerdance Jedi, and if you are lucky enough to live in the Bay Area, you can skate with him during one of his outdoor lesson sessions!

His two-step skating method saved us...and made way more sense than the ol' bubbles move. 

Follow Richard on Instagram, subscribe to his YouTube channel, and check out his website for amazing, accessible tips and tricks.

Thank you Richard for all of the energy and care you devote to the skate community!
