to clarify, yes it was in a neutral position and ^^^ the above post sums it up for me. when split seconds count at that rate of speed and every movement becomes magnified i was expecting my highback to be there to support me and help me tilt the board back and it wasnt where it should have been (run-on sentence?). not saying its impossible to do but things can certainly go wrong in a hurry when shit doesnt respond the way it should.
Okay now I follow. I wasn't trying to dog you dude.
