How do you setup your Skate?
I put the foot straps as close together as possible to get maximum grip. The mast foot pretty much as much as possible in the back. Fins from 17-20 cm.
Which moves are you working on?
Shifty 720 and a few other jumps
What’s the biggest thing you’ve ever pulled off at Lake Neusiedl?
Hmm... I really don't remember a special one to be honest.
