Step 1: Starting Out

First start on one side of the street ,board pointing down hill. with one foot, start kicking until you have decent speed.

Step 2: Cresting (as I Like to Call It)

Then turn tilt your body so you turn left this action, as ilike to call it, is called cresting. For an idea look at the pic below

Step 3: Troughing (as I Like to Call It)

 Then turn right by tilting your body in almost a sitting motion, which gives you a low center of gravity which = speed. This is what i like to call troughing. Look below for an idea

Step 4: Keep the Beat and Ride!

Keep the beat goin, troughing and cresting is all there is to it. Enjoy the carve!

    You missed reading the bit that says "An Instructable is a step-by-step guide showing how you made or did something".
    We need to see something that is uniquely yours.
