The music is next level unreal. I feel like the end of a japanimie cartoon just ended and the hero WON!!

Also the dude in gray destroyed the yellow guy and the camera work gave me a seizure. That is all.

Not to bring back a dead thread, but some guys from sole were at my local place and I got to spend a day on em. Learning curve it huge, but now that I can cruise comfortably, it's incredible to be able to carve a moonwalk across a cruiser. Definitely a whole different deal. I did end up snaggin a pair :/

As far as "training" for riding, ill definitely agree. It's not necessarily improving your riding, but it opens a whole set of doors when you put your feet together again. Your much more aware of the vector you create with you effective edge, and likewise will naturally manipulate it better.

See the whole with open eyes, and tackle new out of the box, crazy things.

I might add, they look dangerous but the falls are very minor compared to riding, or skiing. You can't cross them, you can't contort your body in weird falls like a board. You can really only trip over them like a retard walking :/

They're the best for a last run cruiser type deal. Lots of new muscles being used.

Well props to you for trying them out and being willing to take the verbal abuse that's probably going to come your way now.

I'd like to try them. I doubt if I'd buy, if for no other reason than it'd be yet one more thing to take up my time.

Most of the positive comments in the thread were sarcasm. Brace yourself for the heckling. I don't see how they arn't dangerous..unless doing the splits on a icy hill sounds safe to you.

Nothing says "serious mountain equipment" like a demo on a freaking traverse.

Read about these things in the paper a couple of weeks ago and rolled my eyes. Now that I've seen the video, I fancy a good vomit.

Those guys look retarded. Imagine getting kff the lift, doing a little moonwalk to a stop. doing a 10 yard dash from a dig on your toes and your off.

I'll have to post some videos for ultimate flamage

So should I also picture Jean Claude Van Damme in a neon unitard doing the Electric Boogaloo too?

as promised, heres some footy of myself that one of the guys from sole boards threw together. just shot vid in the morning then i went home and passed out haha. those things are so exhausting. There are some good tricks in there. Barrel roll/frontflip, cartwheel, grabs, spins, carves etc


I like to think I have some aspect of style on them and dont look like a complete tool.

Sole Breakboarding - YouTube!

regardless, flame on....

I will say again though, going back to a board after having you feet separate immediately opens the way you think about your lines, pressure in you feet and balance.


also i have no clue how to embed youtube links :/
