Watching the feats of experienced skateboarders, who do complicated stunts without a blink of an eye, it would seem that such a ride on a skateboard is very simple. However, when all these tricks and evolutions try to do by yourself, you can quickly find out that it's a mistaken thinking.
Maintaining balance while skateboarding requires a great deal of skill, not to mention other high-performance elements. Nevertheless, it is worth not giving in after the first unsuccessful attempt. How to improve your driving technique?
Learn to catch balance
At the beginning it is worth remembering that safety is the most important thing when driving. Helmet and protectors are the basis for both experienced and novice skateboarders.
The first tests should be carried out with the assistance of a person or by supporting walls, railings, etc. The first tests should be carried out with the assistance of a person or with the support of walls, barriers, etc. This will allow you to exercise more safely than in the open air. Exercises should be slowly intensified and not discouraged too quickly. Don't forget about skateboarding exercises. If you want to brake it is enough to lift the leg from the front slightly upwards, tilt the trunk and at the same time press the other leg backwards with the other leg. It's strange, but it's worth practicing the fall. This is the best way to avoid painful bruises. The most important rule during a fall is to direct the body in such a way as to hit the largest possible surface of the body.
Once you have mastered the balance, you can move on. Another element is the twisting science. During this manoeuvre, the body weight must be transferred to the rear of the skateboard. While learning this element at the beginning it is worth to gently and slowly start twisting the body by the angle that is currently needed. This can be achieved by slightly lifting the board until the desired direction is reached.
Once you have mastered the basics, you can perform more advanced manoeuvres than forwards or gentle turns. There are a lot of possibilities: slaloms, eight, rapid changes of direction. If you want to invade the ramp, you first need to practice a fast enough ride, as speed is essential for climbing up such a steep hill.
Riding a skateboard at the beginning may seem very difficult, but mastering basic activities such as maintaining balance, correct braking and twisting will allow you to move on to the next level, where you can try your hand at more advanced tricks and evolutions. It requires training and a lot of self-denial to try to perform a manoeuvre again, despite falls. With your motivation you can learn even the most difficult tricks and impress other skateboarders.
