@HanahsDax i can ride switch well enough on my snowboard (still not super great at turns, but straights are fine), so i'm hoping that will help on the Pint. we shall see! i'll definitely wear pads and a helmet.
@iBloke No worries man. I know how you feel right now. Yes, starting off with some additional ankle support is important.
I think you'll want to spend some time in physical therapy before getting back on though. Make sure your ankles are at least as strong as the average person, but in reality, you'll need them to be even stronger than that for OW action.
So start with support but slowly reduce it over time so you can build up your body to handle the sport. I'm sure you'll find the way to get back on correctly.
Speaking from experience, a concussion changes your personnel choice really fast! I do cringe when I watch parts of this, but I still think it's amazing and I still ride, but anymore, always with a helmet.
@mr-vince I go over several speed bumps and speed mounds (the super-wide speed bumps NYC puts in school zones) daily on my commute.
I ride normally, then slow down right before I get to the bump. This raises the nose a bit in preparation of ascending over the bump. I also take some weight off my front leg and loosen my knees a bit.
Just practice, eventually it’s real smooth and you can do it without losing too much speed (assuming you’re riding reasonably in the first place between 13 and 15 mph). I wouldn’t advise taking a speed bump at speed if you’re already riding past the board’s limits at 20+ mph.
