Inline Skates Don't Like Slick or Wet Surfaces
It happens. Sometimes we get caught in the rain, or happen upon wet pavement with no other choice but to skate across it. When this happens you have to change your skate form.
Keep It Short
The solution is simple. Shorten your strides. While this seems only common sense, the issue is that many will start with short, compact strides, they eventually begin to kick out.
Don't Kick Out
Kicking out with a long stride isn’t impossible if you get your body lower to the ground and stay over your center seam on the landing foot, but again, many will begin to straighten up their body and eventually make the mistake of pushing off with too much force.
Keep It Slow
Speed is your friend most of the time when you’re on inline skates. But on wet surfaces, keep it slow. Speed is your enemy. It isn’t possible to stop by any traditional means when you’re travelling over 8 mph on inline skates while on a wet surface.
Keep your body low.
Keep your strides short and compact.
Regulate your speed as it is your enemy.
