How To Distance Push a Bustin Skateboard Like Champion

Distance skateboarding is cool, most people can do it, young and old.  Find a paved trail, bring a skateboard and go for a rip, bud.  You decide how far you will go, you decide when to finish.  It’s Easy.  I described the fundamentals of Distance Skateboarding in pictures from this morning’s rip, 11 miles there-and-back on the White Pine Trail in Rockford, Michigan.

1. Get up  early and eat a good breakfast.

2. Have a chill if you prefer, then get out for a rip bud.

3. Switch-up your pushing leg every-so-often, skate proportionally and stay aero, bud. Use your arms to carry momentum and circulate yer blood.

4. Optimal distance push position is foot forward just rear of the truck bolts.  Raise yer knee high when you pump and extend your toes when you push.  Use yer entire leg muscles for best momentum, power, aerodynamics and performance.

5. You just went for a rip, bud.  Take a selfie.  It’s also a good idea to download Map My Run on your smart phone and track your performance.  The app is free and really allows you to understand how you perform in all conditions and on all terrain.

If yer skating a there-and-back track, set a personal goal and achieve it.  Mine was 5 miles, averaging 12.2.  This is my first push in some time, so I eased into it.  Skate however you prefer.

During the return skate, I kicked it in a bit to see what juice I had left.  Felt good.  11 miles is pretty chill.  I skated 6 miles back and averaged 13.7mph.  Almost competitive!  14-17mph is the average speed of the fastest guys on flatland.  Add some hills and some guys will average 24mph.  Pretty quick!

7The best part of Distance Skateboarding is you feel like a CHAMPION.  I recommend it.  Get out for a rip, bud.  I prefer the Bustin Boards Maestro38 with 70mm-75mm wheels for Distance Skateboarding.  The end.
