    It sounds like you know stand up 180s, a big part of dragging them out further is to turn into the slide a bit more gradually, and push out more equally with both feet, rather then just whipping it around and kicking out the back leg. this will get all 4 wheels sliding so scrub off more speed.

    Also if you haven't learned speed checks yet, a big part of them is learning out to control the boards rotation (so you can slide at 90 degrees and bring it back). so look up any speed check instructional.

    word.


    If you are 180ing too quickly, do what SpeedDemon said and use all of your wheels instead of just the back ones.

    If you get your board out but it hooks back up too quickly, then you need to put more pressure on your heels and sit into it a little more. When you put pressure on your toes in the middle of a speed check, you will either be pitched forward or you wheels will hook back up abruptly. When you keep the pressure on your heels you'll be able to slide to a complete stop. Which comes in handy on the reg.

    get low buy bending your knees and having your weight still over your boards instead of leaning way back you got to play around with it a bit to find that perfect balance. if you can get a picture of yourself holding out a standie and compare where you are over your board to a pro if your icing out you'll notice your way farther back.
