Yes its good that you are progressing and are stoked about it and you are on the way but for it to be an sbend you have to takeoff like a raley and board over your head, you are doing it more like a frontroll/frontflip which is the 1st thing to learn. Keep the videos coming its nice to see videos from the everyday rider like me hehe

Here is a good example... he actually does a rally on the way out of the rotation(sorta) if you look carefully.

exactly!
this is what I meant of course :D :D :D

but on your average session, you don't see that many people
land a simple S Bend and it's a shame because it is very easy

now my 2014 objective is to be horizontal
and to sneak a downloop in it :jump: :jump: yesss
we'll see :wink:

the way the move is decomposed (head, then sholders, then pelvis, then hips and legz)
is unique
