Ride as if you might DIE at any moment. Sounds more poetic.
I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate
A poet, a pawn and a king
I've been up and down and over and out
And I know one thing
Each time I find myself flat on my face
I pick myself up and get back in the race

RE: PROPOSED SHAPING - One-Direction Mode - Why? Efficiency, Safety!
Not really a big One-Direction fan. I mean they're very talented. I just don't like their music...but I'd go all bonkers for a K-Pop mode.
RE: Long-Term Riding and Health
I have low and mid back issues. On a bad day, I can't ride. On a good day, the OW is my PT. It's a great core exerciser, as long as you keep carving. Switchfooting should balance out your leg/knee/ankle, neck, and back/side fatigue along with short breaks here and there. Locking you legs will mess up your knees. Keep the knees bent. The broader and more open your stance, the greater range of motion your body has. Riding with your front foot at 45 degrees with your toes and knee out has this effect and may keep your knee from buckling when the nose goes down. It also helps you keep your balance and run it out on nose dives. If your lead ankle is out and you're not light on your feet, you are going to be eating pavement on nosedives. Just be sure to keep your toes out with your front knee pointed at your toes. Since I switched to this stance I haven't had a bad fall in over a year...and I've had a few nosedives in that time.

RE: Not Stoked--Sit on It Future-Motion
I wish this story wasn't true...but I could see it going down like that with a company focused on expanding its reach instead of supporting its base. I believe you and I hope they offer you a better solution.
My experience with FM customer service was about a 4/10. My tire wore through at 525 miles in under the year-long warranty period. I contacted customer service and was told that I was responsible for the total cost of the service. I thought the tire was a lemon. FM thought maybe that I rode with it underinflated. I didn't but I see their point. I just mostly ride concrete and I carve hard. After some emails back and forth, they offered me a $50 off credit for the tire replacement. At that point, I didn't want to void my warranty by taking apart my board so I sent it in. I was under the impression that the cost of shipping the board was included in the service. It wasn't. Shipping was expensive as $#%@! Keep your boxes people! The repair took just under 3 weeks. Communication from the company during that period was less than stellar. Seems like they forgot about me for a while. I still feel kinda screwed from the whole deal...but at least I made $50. I feel like such a whore!
