firstx1017 In most of the videos he watched they say you have to have your weigh back. In this case, when he leaned forward the nose would dig in and stop - so he started leaning back. It's because he kept getting stuck that it looked like his leaning back stopped it - leaning forward he would have stopped also.

mrkjones Found this on YouTube. Bruneau is about an hour from Boise. The sand is very fine and very hot in the summer.

The hill I ride is definitely steeper. He was moving........so that's better then some. I know they use some type of sand wax on every run. We would use lemon Pledge (furniture polish) on the underside of the plastic sleds. Seemed to help the starting momentum.
