Getting into backward stalls in bowls, etc.
I'm having a time getting into the backward stall. Today I was trying to but I'm getting into carving so I make more arcs now then up and down and dont really clasp on yet. BTW, the coping is really low too. I'm thinking going straight up is ideal? Should I spin onto it or jump onto it? Today instead I did my first truck grind lol. It was awesome but I have these big bell stoppers on and it grabbed and threw me to the center of the bowl! I'm LOVING the pro-designed elbow pads now!!!!! They have been used and abused. :-D

Hey, tell me. When I see inliners, they dont bend as much forward but only in the knees. Everyone here I see also bends at the waist like me with their head forward. Is it because our wheels are closer together?

And why do skateboarders skate with 52-54mm and we use much bigger wheels? Just curious as to the differences. I know, I ask too many questions but I wonder.....

Yes, today lucky. The bowls were dry! But also got cramps in my ankles and feet til I warmed up. I had to stop and stretch and skate and stretch for 20mins til they let up. Is it cause its cold (below freezing here) or it feels like lactic acid buildup or what? Should I do something more before I skate? I wasnt cramping up beforehand. Am I out of shape? This is weird.....
