This is the one where you slide on both your inside edges? Like doing a powerslide with the front foot and a T-stop with the back foot at the same time. If so piss, easy to do on wet tiles. I wasn't expecting it to happen and it went on a long way until I hit some steps. There are various mechanics ...

Depends on the rocker. I don't like to estimate my speed as when the adrenaline bites or even before, everyone thinks they are going much faster than they really are. In reality I doubt anyone reaches 30mph down Pentonville Rise, but everyone thinks they are doing more than 40. Unless you were clock...

Speed Wobble Question

I've been nervous few times but that is all. On some of those occasions I braked because I felt the amplitude of the wobble increase to very uncomfortsable proportions and the downhill was by no means over. Each time I was 2ishmm of rear rocker as well as 2-3mm of toe. Toe rocker doesn't normally af...

It's not hard but it isn't comfy. However, I have never done more than 5 in a row and haven't worked out whether I need to have stiff or floppy feet. I don't want to be too rigid but going down with relaxed feet seems to get worse the more steps there are. Are there rigid joints and relaxed ones, eg...

There is a big difference between doing it on ice and doing it on inlines. they are opposites in one respect. On ice you start sliding when the blade is more upright and finish when the edge is applied a bit more and digs in to the ice. This is because you have more grip with more edge on ice. The o...

7-8 may sound a little short. But is usually drags on until 8:20 or so and sometimes 9pm in school hols as the kids that come on after don't turn up on time.
