It's funny that snowolf said that, because I did the same thing Friday. There was some pretty long, only mildly graded run outs, and I found myself thinking about this thread and really paying attention to what my board was doing. I pretty much had the same conclusion as Eastside and Snowolf. One CAN ride completely flat, but the board will get a little squirrely if you don't use pressure to ccontrol it. To somebody watching, it would appear the board was completely flat. I think if I had been distracted I would have scorpioned as well. If I was to squat all the way down, lowering my center of gravity, that would certainly help, but I think lots of people, when flatbasing, stand pretty much straight up.
