I didn't say it makes you press better lol. I said it gives you added support, but I also said that added support is negligible.

By the way, some people do actually force the press. Some people do it with balancing and body position, others do it on softer boards by forcing the tip/tail up with their legs.

I mostly do it with body positioning, but I'll also lift my nose if I want it higher.
