    how do you turn with a homemade one with a solid deck

    @ GO-LO you sit on the back put your feet on the front and get someone to push as hard as they can. It is easy because the ground is smooth and the bearings and wheels are new. It goes fast. No helmet is more fun.

    it's called a reply button, it's alot easier.

    you put @ GO-LO instead of clicking "reply"

    um...i dont know what you mean!!??.....do i jump???? cause i keep falling off!! :( pleease helP!!!!

    I think nanor11395 means to twist your front foot to the way you want to turn and the back foot in the opposite direction.
