So you bought a Freebord, took a few spills and know you’re back here looking for guidance on what the hell you’re doing wrong. First off, don’t panic, you’re not alone. When it comes to how quickly people learn to ride a Freebord, there is a wide range of experiences. Some people seem to have an affinity for it and pick it up within a few minutes, while others (such as myself) struggle making it three feet without ending up on the ground. The time it takes may vary widely from person to person, but there are a few tips & tricks that will help speed up the process. In order to help ease the pain of learning to ride, we’ve put together a learn to ride video featuring our local pro, Mike Hoppe. Enjoy and good luck!
