There are many elements of a longboard that make it ride the way it does. In this episode we’ll talk about rails, tails, and the nose.
Wanna get to the nose? Better get those cross steps down first!
Longboarding is a dance and the dropknee turn is a stylistic, yet functional way to maneuver with grace and flow.
Having a smooth finish to your ride not only shows control and intention, but can save you time and get you back out to lineup much faster.
The cutback is used when the rider has ridden to the shoulder and needs to regain power and control of the wave.
When it comes to longboarding most people are pretty obsessed with noseriding. The thing is, in order to even get close to performing a proper nose ride, you got to have your bottom turn down first.
