Ok. did some fuckin' around today.

Yes, I am definitely flat basing. When I was, I could only go where gravity took me. The whole idea behind flat basing is you don't steer, you haul, ass that it is

Try this You will 100% know for a fact you are Flat basin'
While you are riding, bend down & grab your left boot with your left hand & right with the right.
Now push down on your boots & rest your elbows on your knees.

You can feel every little bump travel through your feet into your hands.
Even feel exactly where the bump was, if it was @ the ball of your foot or heel or toe.

All I can say is try it. You will feel it instantly.
It was actually pretty trippy Every little bump/lump you go over, you feel individually in a precise spot on the bottom of your foot.
No two bumps ever feel the same or are in the same place.

To anyone who thinks you're always, even if it's the slightest bit, on an edge?

Nope. Sorry. You are wrong.

On a side note.
Your brain will be telling you to stare @ your feet, boots & hands.
Don't do it, Your new route has now become the Fall Line. You will need to pay attention.
