    Default Stand ups without flat spots..

    Recently I have been doing bigger stand ups, around 20 feet. But yesterday after a couple solid ones I had a small flat spot on a couple of my wheels. I've pretty much concluded that this is because I tend to hold the slide at 90 degrees. Does any one have any specific advice to be able to hold them just under 90 and drift to the left? (im regular)

    don't go all the way sideways, make sure that your wheels keep turning

    flatspot are caused by the wheels not spinning.

    I get the idea of it and know all the causes and what not.. i guess I'm just looking for a specific tip involving weight distribution, technique, etc.

    Instead of locking in your standy at 90, lock it in earlier. Look more towards the left (where you wanna go).

    Don't stall the board straight out. Sweep it, keep the board angled as long as possible so the wheels stay spinning.

    Instead of holding your board out at 80-90 degrees try holding it out at a 45 degree angle. you'll know when you're doing it right when you see 4 thane lines instead of just 2. When you leave only 2 thane lines it means your left and right wheels are lining up which means flatspots and ovalizations.... Your thane lines should only cross if you do a 180. If you watch in this video you can see he leaves 4 thane lines...

    watch some of the Kyle Chin videos.

    **** your shoulder back (which in turns affect your hip position) so that even with your back feet fully extended during the kick out, you will be less than 90. This will also allow you to kick out as hard as you can without worrying about over-rotating.
