Pierre, our old-school freestyle man from Down Under who spins tricks from twenty years ago on gear from twenty years ago (previously featured in Freestyle Move of the Day) reached out to the Peconic Puffin with this quick tutorial for getting up on the rail. Check it out!
Pierre notes that his longboard "cost me $25 in a yard sale. Back in Sydney, I sail more wave-oriented gear, but hey, I'm having a ball." I spent $100 on my Superlight (would have spent $200). I meet the occasional skeptic, but they're usually cured by spending five minutes on the board, which has guaranteed grin-inducing qualities.
So...get thee on a longboard and have fun!
