skidding vs skipping (order learned)
i've been trying to skip all night and managed to figure out how to skid in the process, by accidentally locking up my rear knee. i can't hold it but the tires to begin skidding and i can feel them rotate backwards a bit before my knee unlocks.
sooo is it just me or are VERY short skids way easier than skipping?
also have observed that it is somewhat difficult to maintain handlebar control, but i think it's because i'm standing up and as i put pressure on my left foot i twist my body to the left, causing the bars to turn slightly
