Hey everyone!

Just in case you missed the blog!

So here is a quick little video from a week or two ago. Please let me know if there is anything you guys and gals are interested in knowing….boards, tip tricks, or even where Damien Leroy got those lame white shades!

Good riding, I have a question about shuvs and 180s. I ride a very light board and it seems to want to blow away quite easily. I have big ollies on lock but I can't seem to get the rotation of the shuv or 180, any tips?

It definitely helps to have a bit more weight for those kind of tricks, but as long as it's not over 18-20 knots it shouldnt be too much of a problem.
Try not thinking of it in terms of a typical skateboard shove it. The board need to rotate around your front foot, so the front foot becomes a focal point for the rotation. Try doing a typical small air (about 1-2 feet), no need to go higher; when your about the highest point, start the rotation then by pushing the back foot into the wind. If you don't feel the board rotating on the ball of your front foot, you're going about it all wrong.

I hope this helps!
