Also, if you have a camber deck then you will probably have that issue more due to the contact points towards the tip and tail of your board.
Correct me if I'm wrong,.. when flat basing for say, "X" distance (longer than a few dozen yards?) on a packed or icy run, particularly /w a cambered board. ANY small lapse in technique, i.e. shoulder alignment, centered/forward weighted stance etc. is likely to give you that "Edgy" feeling? Is this correct?

I have noticed myself, when riding straight & flat (...trying to get comfortable with speed,) my cambered Arbor Roundhouse will get a little,.. "fishtaily" for lack of a better/proper term! The rear of the board will tend to slide/turn down/across slope one way or 'tuther!

I assumed it was due to getting sloppy with my shoulder alignment?
