3) Getting on: Get on your board as lightly as possible. Your feet should be placed right down the middle of the board. These key points will help you have the best ride possible. 4) The ride: Keep your knees bent to lower your centre of gravity, which will keep you more stable for a longer ride.
Store flat where possible, and avoid putting heavy objects on top to keep from deforming the foam. Do not leave in direct heat when not in use.
