nice board ^

Can't wait to get my custom board this summer. I've ridden raw already, but it needs to get finish and graphics on it still. Whenever Ryan gets around to my board and finishes it up, i'll post up some pics.

Also just tried out gumballs for the first time. Love how smooth they ride. I swear I'm only feeling about half the vibrations on chipseal as I did on my S9 race forumlas.

I think I did like 0.2 second's worth of a manual yesterday. Call me lame, but I was stoked.

I've never done them, but I'd think you should treat the board as though it has edges like a snowboard. After you complete 180* be sure your weight gets shifted so the uphill wheels have your weight over them and not the downhill wheels. I'd also imagine you need more speed than you normally need for something basic like a coleman.

I found this video. I don't know if it will be of any help.





I just got the materials for my slide gloves today! I can't wait to try to slide.

I finally slid tonight. The levels of stoke coursing through my veins is ridiculous. Any of you guys listen to music while you skate? I don't know why, but I feel way more confident when I do.

Man how have I missed this thread? I'm pretty big into downhill racing and freeriding.. I'm like a freeride downhiller I guess haha.

Turn on some music for these cause they're a little boring without it... I'm the person with green shoes riding the landyachtz 9two5.

You guys have any tips on how to do a coleman? Every time I try doing one I seem to just make a sharp turn rather than the actual slide.

commit. Carve hard into it and fall on your hand. For me, it was easier to learn grabbing rail (NO STINKBUG). Just accept that you will probably fall and things get way easier from there

Yeah I learned by grabbing too, also remember to keep weight/push on your front foot so it doesn't just whip around 180, you want it to be in control of the slide. Also always look in the direction you are sliding, it helps when you want to hold out a shutdown slide. Toe sides are a gray area since I look at my hands while sliding.

Oh and if you keep just making a sharp turn, preferably go faster.

I also learned colemans with grabbing the rail at first but now it's much better for me to not grab the rail. As said above just look where you want to go.

Also, when grabbing the rail, do not pull up on the board since you could pull the board off the ground doing this. Just use your weight to sit back and guide the board into a slide.

actually i never grabbed any of my slides. it did take me forever to learn slides but it made me feel better knowing i didn't grab. i landed 180 colemans in like 30 mins. it just takes comiting and time to learn the actual colman. dont wear pants/ shorts that you dont mind ripping.
