We’re going to talk a little bit about carving
a bowl which is basically how to maintain speed and keep going while skating transition
in a bowled out type ramp. The difference between carving in a bowl and carving in a
ramp is that a bowl can continuously go around in a circle. Where as a ramp you must rely
on kick turns in a 100 degree movements to turn around. The most important part of carving
is keeping your knees bend, bending into the transition when approaching straighten slightly
while you are parallel to the copping and then bending your knees for reentry. Let’s
look at it one more time.
With a little practice you can learn how to carve in a way to make you have greater and
greater speed and able to do bigger tricks.
