An 8% grade will push you past 30mph in a hurry. Unless the 8% part is just a small bump or you don't actually need to stop in a reasonable distance, I think you will need some rather advanced methods.

1) one footed heel brake
2) Wiley Coyote (two brakes)
3) Some sort of cess slide/hockey stop

What all these methods have in common is that any skate on the ground is braking. If it is not part of the braking process, it needs to be off the ground.
