    I also love going fast!! Personally I just relax and think about how much fun the hill will be. I try to not think about having a max speed.
    Also wearing gear made me go faster, helps mentally
    I was skatin down the street, Lakais on my feet!

    Learn to drift and slide. That way you can slow down at will.

    1. Why is this thread in the vintage forum? You should ask this in the longboard section, since you're a longboarder.

    2. Sack up & get over it! Progressively go faster till you're comfortable with speed.

    you obviously havent learned the to channel that fear into an adrenaline rush. which means you obviously dont do this skate DH proper.

    Something isn't as scary the second time. So do it once. Voila! No fear!

    This thread is incredibly stoopeed. What are we actually supposed to say? Something cheesy like "We believe in you, just go for the gold!" I can't actually think of anything helpful that could be said here. Ride more. That's puurty much it. If your really still scared go to therapy and do yoga.

    Go out and skate dudes!

    Peace

    You just have something wrong with your adrenal glades...


    but seriously, you can't push fear out of your head. You just have to focus on what you are doing and commit to the decisions you made when you pushed off from the top. Turn the fear into super brain fuel.

    When you bomb anything, look ahead, not down at your feet. Watch way ahead of you so that you are away of

    If that doesn't help, just remember than it's better to die doing something you love... and everyone dies anyway.

    proper padding lets me loose fear. also i have things i say to myself. like just before i am about to start a hill i like to yell "im ready to prove a point!" (just a reference to a tv show) and i laugh so it relaxes me. also i think of the youtube video "let go" i think to myself just to let go and do what i need to do.
    hey, my post is up there^^

    Man, adrenaline is like doing a 16200 pendy slide off a brand new 2011 Corvette whilst seeing Pamela Anderson jogging next to you while you're flying overhead. Adrenaline is better (almost) than weed!
