Longboard dancing, stepping, or whatever else you call it, is almost like regular dancing. The biggest difference is how hard it is to take that first step.
After that, it’s all about remembering that you’ve already taken that first step, and the tens, hundreds, and thousands of steps that will follow.
To maneuver around the board, I need to remember where my weight is and where it’s going. All the while, I need to purposefully place my feet where they need to go next on the board. It’s an awesome balance of mental and physical focus that affects me like meditating would. Only, I also get a great work out of it, so it’s a win win hobby.
