One thing that I've once learned instinctively, forgotten and now re-learned is to remember to think ahead to where I'll be next instead of where I'm at. If I'm approaching a ramp and planning to go up onto the coping I need to think ahead and feel myself going up onto the coping when I'm at the bottom of the ramp instead of waiting until I get up there. It gets your body prepared and ready to react.
I think that's one of the main problems I've been having is not thinking ahead to where I'll be but focusing on riding the board where I'm at. As a friend once said, it's really all about your body going places and you're bringing the board along with you. Not the other way around.
Hope this helps someone. Thoughts?
