If you are going maximum speed completely flat based, you're an idiot.

You're clearly not understanding the concept. It's not about engaging an edge like carving. You need to put pressure to one side, even if its the slightest bit. You're probably not even aware you're doing this but if you're not then somehow you've figured out how to defy physics.. Or you're just sloppy
