I have had trouble longboarding faster than 30 mph, last year’s braggy post notwithstanding. I had hoped that a new board with some awesome wheels would get me over the hump … but it was not to be.
Then I noticed something new on Longboard SpeedMeter — a mark indicating where a run’s maximum speed occurred. All I needed was a little tighter tuck a little uphill of that spot1 and let gravity do the rest.
When a couple more runs didn’t quite get me there, I brought out my older board and cranked the trucks down tight for a solid tucking platform.
That did the trick!2
