This post is a note from a video on 5 Hard Lessons You Need to Learn Before 30. I’m not sure why the magic number 30 is there since everyone’s age span varies a bit differently, but anyways, here are the five lessons:
1. There may not be a tomorrow, so enjoy/do it now.
- Think about what would be the things that you would regret not do if tomorrow were your last day.
- Your time is limited and you don’t have forever, so do what you want to and do what you enjoy right now.
2. You’ve got nothing to lose, but everything to gain.
- Give it your all. You are born to win, so do what winners do
This is a one of skills that helps you slow down stylishly. This post is going to focus on frontside only because it’s easier than backside. And personally, i think frontside looks more stylish and feels safer. So, without further ado, let’s get started.
Pre-requisite: Riding in high speed
According to Tony Robbin’s Unlimited Power, the answer is as simple as one word: “Ask”.
The book provides five guidelines for asking intelligently and precisely:

1. T-rex arm
The body is too stiff and not moving much. Be more expansive and expressive. Loosen the muscles a bit and do expansive gestures.
2. Seeking behaviour
Don’t look out for more interesting stuff from afar. Be engaged with whoever that’s nearby. The fun is where you’re at.
3. Step out and break the group line
I’ll just let the video explain this one since this is more than a body language and requires some courage.
He included this extra one in the last minute, so technically four.
This note is taken from Charima on Command’s 6 Mindsets That Will Make You Magnetic (Animated). Watch it when you have a chance.
1. No Matter what, I will be okay.
Just do it! You will be fine even in the worst case scenario.
2. I care about my character than reputations
Stop caring about people’s opinion about you and just be yourself
3. Impeccable honesty and Integrity
Never ever lie! Even if nobody finds out, deep down inside YOU know you are a liar that lies sometimes.
4. You do not need to convince anyone of any particular beliefs
You never need anyone to do anything. You simply ask. If they don’t like what’s being asked, don’t try to convince them. You accept or filter them out of your life.
5. Start communicating your purpose more proactively
Find what your purpose and passion and spread it out to the world
6. Start going first
It usually signifies bravery. Be vulnerable. People always remember the first person that does it. It’s okay, no matter what, you will be okay.
You should change it when your board gets too soggy or has pressure cracks! If you are into tricks, soggy board (with possibly razor tail) means you won’t have good high ollies because the board can no longer pop up very well. The performance of every single pop trick will be affected. Also, if you notice any pressure cracks near or in between the trucks, you should replace it for safety concerns.
Everyday use for cruising is fine as long as the board is still in one piece. Soggy or not won’t matter much in this case. To see if your board is too soggy for tricks, try tapping the tail to the ground and listen to the sound. Soggy boards have a staler sound while good-conditioned ones sound more snappy and crispy.
