Best Answer

- footbrake: put your foot lightly on the ground as you're riding

- airbrake: stand up really tall and wide when your riding (slows you down but won't stop you

- sliding: I reccommend that you get yourself some sliding gloves, 80a up wheels and some pads and helmet and learn to slide because going over 40ks if you air brake you'll get speed wobbles and if footbrake and lose balance u'll most likley die or get seriously injured. if you need help look up how to slide on YouTube.
