  2. 2.Choose whichever foot feels best and place it on the front main metal deck.  (The larger wheels should be in the front.) 

  3. 3.Push off with the other foot to get rolling.

Extra Riding Tips

Many but not all of the normal tips for skateboarding apply.  Skateboarding and Stowboarding are potentially dangerous activities.  All precautions you’d take when riding a skateboard you should take while Stowboarding.  Just because it’s a smooth fast ride that provides a low center of gravity and conveniently folds up when not in use doesn’t mean you can’t get totally jacked up if don’t respect the fact that you’re rolling on wheels.

  1. -NEVER skate without wearing sturdy closed toed shoes.

  2. -Always be able to “run off” if you need to bail.  In other words, keep your feet under you!

  3. -When going over rough spots or large cracks in the pavement try to have your pushing foot pushing (or at least ready to take over) at that moment, this way if you get stuck on some debris you won’t go flying because you’ll have your pushing foot down.

  4. -Never skate or ride your Stowboard in the rain or on wet or sandy ground.  This can unexpectedly decrease your traction and you might power slide when you least expect it.  Plus, water and sand are bad for bearings.
