you see where this is headed.
I happened to be up and out early today and just down the street from one of the local skate parks. It's before 8am so no kids, no embarrassing moments and a ton of room.
I head up to the small straight drop in ramps.
Strap in front foot and figure I'll just glide down like I would one footed on the snow. That didn't go so well.
Try both feet in, and drop in on the same ramp. Went better till I stopped, lost a little balance and now I'm sitting on my ass.
I gave it a valiant effort, but it just isn't there. Like many had said, but I still thought it was worth the effort.
The board just goes straight, there is no turning it. At least the way I have it built.
I am able to drop in fine, a little drag over the edge but nothing major.
There is no flexing or turning ability. This may be why we now see this board with the wheels out over the edges and not so much cut into the middle. Or this board is designed for straight on jumps or straight line drops.
I do have a bruise on my shin to prove it even though it's not worthy of a pic.
I am glad I tried it, even if it didn't work out the way I wanted it to. No regrets there !
So I guess I just need to settle in and wait 6 more months for some snow now
