    @ 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.

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

    That's not necessarily right... try a scooter. Whichever is your front foot is the same for skateboards and Ripsticks. Or try sliding on slippery floors in socks. Same thing.
