HOW-TO: Tucking on a Longboard

MOBOT and 2011 World Cup downhill longboarding champ Max Wippermann talks aerodynamics and explains how any longboarder can learn to be just as comfortable tucking on a longboard while bombing a downhill run as he is. Learning to tuck on a board while bombing downhill runs is awkward and scary, but Max has got his tuck on lock and he’s got some serious knowledge on the subject; I don’t know anyone I’d rather learn to tuck from! Hopefully this video will help you take your downhill longboarding to speed demon status.
