thanks, i did read that thread...im looking more for something i can do as training rather than a hobby. wakeboarding would be awesome but not really something i could do too often. i think im leaning towards a longboard, unfortunately its pretty flat where i live but it'll be better than nothing and i'm hoping if i skate goofy all summer, dialing in riding switch will be easier next winter
^^^ +1 to the trampoline, it's a bloody good workout! But another thing you could do is an actual 2-4 day a week workout. A strong core, legs, glutes, etc. will really help with any riding. There's only so far that technique can take you without having the muscle to back it up. I know I've got to do a lot more training this summer.
