Thanks for the response. I’m 200lbs and was probably carrying an additional 15lbs nothing too substantial just had my hands full. This is the first I’ve heard about riding with my feet to wide. I generally keep my front foot (one with the pressure sensors) towards the end of the board as I find it easier to disengage the motor while coming to a stop. I adjusted the tire pressure and rode it yesterday without an issue. However I’m still skeptical as I lost my confiendce in the board.

Nose Dive Tire Pressure Related?
Just received my onewheel a few weeks ago and I have close to 100 miles on it. I use it to commute around NYC and it's been very reliable up until recently. During my morning commute the board took a nose dive within the first minute of my ride launching me off the board. Of course the day I'm carry all sorts of bags. I've read all the posts about nose diving and I wasn't over accelerating, never felt pushback (in Mission going maybe 10mph), and both my feet were firmly on the pads. In addition, the board didn't lose power. On my commute back the same exact thing happened, even with me being very cautious. When I got home I checked everything and the only thing that was off was the tire pressure. It was down to 10psi. My only thought was perhaps the low tire pressure caused the motor to overload? Just wanted to see if anyone else had similar experiences. As I said, I ride this around the city and if I take a nose dive at the wrong time, it could be a very bad day for me. Thanks.
