Goodwood saw yet another great longboard turn out this year. The headwinds were up again but the top 3 all finished under 2 hours. Forum member Tim (and designer of the rad PSD footstops) did a great write up of his take on the day in our forum.
After around the 2nd lap, I was in 2nd with Matt Elver in 1st way in front, I probably couldn’t see him by lap 2! Then Ben Williams caught me up on his dropped and lowered pusher. I felt pretty sick, at this point, with burning lungs and my leg muscles started screaming. This is where I swapped techniques and mimicked Ben, pushing and tucking. Ben gave me some tuck tips as we were skating and it helped! It meant that my feet were both centred and pointing forwards which made bending over easier and both feet were poised and prepared to push, amazing! My feet were always ready to push regular, push mongo or tuck, no need to move my feet at all; amazing!
