How To Do An Ina Bauer On Roller Skates
Practice doing a side surf first: moving forward with your toes pointed outward
1
Skate forward first, then open hips up and lift or go on heels of the back foot to get into the positions
2
For the Ina Bauer it's similar in terms of getting into the position, but instead of being parallel the back foot goes back further
3
The back foot goes on two wheels, and the leading foot directs the flow and goes into a slight inner edge
4
Next step, bending the back, you can choose to use your arms to enhance the movements
5
This is the position - put weight on the guiding foot and use it to balance you as you bend backwards. This will ensure you don't fall backwards
6
If you're feeling more confident bend further back and catch a glimpse of what's behind you!
7
You can also use Ina Bauers as transitions to moves such as jumps!
8
Be safe & don't forget to wear protective gear, take it slowly and these are just recommendations!
