Also see Heel-Brake Stopping & Spinstops

Keep Brake Against Ground

If your brake skips, make sure the brake pad is well ahead of your shoulders & that you are increasing braking pressure consistently.

Avoid Hooking

Avoid hooking right as you brake by making sure the toe of your braking skate is pointing straight ahead.
Do not lean forward or arch your back & do not look down. Keeping your eyes straight ahead helps you stay balanced.
