SWriverstone Posted March 31, 2005 Report Share Posted March 31, 2005 I plan to check dedicated skateboarding forums as well, but I wanted the opinion of snow carvers who also carve asphalt... I'm a newbie to skateboarding, and want to get into carving asphalt. I've noticed something asphalt carvers seem to strive for is squatting down low on the board and dragging their hand along the road. I understand that a lower CG equals greater stability, etc. What I want to know is, can't you carve a skateboard without doing this? I mean, is this necessary to carve? Or is it just a stylistic thing, done for its "cool points," like EC carving? Granted, I haven't tried getting low on a skateboard and dragging my hand...and who knows? I might like it! But right now, my interest is in doing deep carves from an angulated, standing position---just like on snow. Is this not possible on a skateboard without squatting? Or bolting plate bindings to the board? :) Scott Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
