ebs675 Another thing that is important is to be really relaxed and loose, and try not to fight the board. If you are tense or have stiff legs it will be really difficult to ride at low edge angles(i.e. close to flat basing). Being loose and relaxed will help all other aspects of your riding as well. My riding really progressed once I learned the importance of this.

It's generally accepted that you should always be on one edge or the other, never flat. As you get more experienced you won't have to edge quite so hard, and may be able to ride flat or really close to it. For now, always be turning (even if only a little bit).
