    Default How they don't stop?

    Skateboards often stop suddenly when they hit a pebble or a crack on the road. But i've seen many videos of many skateboarders skateboarding on streets and being able to avoid the skateboard's stop. How do they do it? Is there any "trick"?

    Try to avoid the rocks. With speed though you will roll over them. Also if you see cracks try to get weight off the board and it will glide over it.

    If you see the pebble or crack and need to go over it you pop your front wheels up just enough to get it over the pebble or crack and do like a hop motion to help reduce the weight on the board like shift your weight upwards

    They usually edit out things like that, unless it's worth throwing in.

    Exactly what I do, just lift the nose up where the wheels come up in the air
