[b][color=red]ok, simple as this. i can't powerslide. i just can't really figure out how to do it. i get up speed, then lean back and put both my feet on each end of the board and push my right foot forward, and try to pull my left one back. put it won't actually go 90 degrees and stop. it just sort of drags alont the pavement and turns a tiny bit, but that's all. am i doing it wrong? or am i just not strong enough? or WHAT?!?!?[/color][/b]
