Skateboarding - How to Stop and Powerslide on a Longboard

In order to brake in time need not only well-honed technique of skateboarder but also reliable equipment and the body of board. For example, I buy parts for my board on this site https://x3mboardshop.com/longboards/trucks/ because it is the time-tested service.
