Rules to play Logrolling
The front step with a skip step
To keep control of the Key Log, rollers use a technique called the skip step. This is an asymmetrical pattern done by stepping OVER the top of Key Log with your outside foot closest to your end of the log and quickly followed up by the inside foot just to the top of the log, not over it. The over the top technique enables the roller to rein in, or brake the log.
The skip step is tricky to learn on the Key Log, so practice the pattern on the pool deck or beach. Place one foot in front of you, and bring the other foot up to meet it, repeat this pattern while speeding up as you move forward.
