yeah, i'm used to trying to initiate the turns at the contact points. Why is it different on flat camber? when I got the Gnu with Revers camber, turn initiation was the same. from what it sounds like you guys are describing, i would have to steer from the middle as well since the main contact is in the middle.
Also, could you guys talk more about what you mean when you say ride it like a skateboard? Its not really translating that well for me. I haven't really ridden a skateboard that much in 20 years (and that was a surprising revelation just now :| ). I have ridden a longboard a couple times in the past few years, but nothing that really stood out as far as technique.
