In this episode, Danny takes us to the pumptrack where technique and power combine for a really good time. The pumptrack is a looped sequence of rollers and berms that when rolled correctly can maximize momentum. Danny explains the technique to find balance and speed.
Danny starts with body position and balance before pumping to create speed and momentum. The trick of skating a pumptrack is to stay low and comfortable. Use the bumps to increase speed and find the perfect flow. Once you have mastered your speed and flow, you can start learning to jump from bump to bump. For best practice make sure to check your skates and wear your protective gear. Now go find your flow at a pumptrack near you.
