It can be done, but its NOT easy. There is a lot of grip potential outdoors, also a lot of slip potential. If you cant perfectly execute hockey stops indoors then you probably shouldnt attempt them outdoors.

I use a mix of stops outdoors (no toe stops though) usually plow and hockey stops. Spin/transitions can shed a great deal of speed as well as move you in a suitable direction if needed. When Im unsure of grip consistency I tend not to do a hockey stop though. Such as rainy or wet conditions.

Wheels we typically use outdoors are faster grips, sure grip power plus, vanilla groove n glide, cosmic superflys, atom poisons, radar flat outs, pretty much anything really, depending on where were skating
