Skateboarding tips from Donchian

Three second rule: when on the board with both feet for three seconds or more, pivot foot at top of the board and be prepared to turn.
Two block rule: when traveling two blocks or less; skate rather than walk or drive.
Proper body alignment: maintain shoulder position inline with foot position; keep knees bent.
Do the 'swoop': for tighter banking on turns, bend knees more and lead with front shoulder; good speed required.
