Thought I'd share the setup I've been putting together. I don't have the ability to do it justice but it is inspiration for me to practice practice practice

I like this deck and your footstops !
Do you ride only without hooks ?

Thanks, the deck is a 85 bamboo that I've reworked.

 

I'm new the freebord this summer and it was suggested to me as a way to improve my technique to ride hookless so I took them off. I've been enjoying it hookless so gonna stick with it for now. It's even more satisfying than hooked freebord.

@jim for sure hookless is a really good way to learn correcty how to Freebord !

usually, the "hookless" rider develops a particular fluidity in his riding.
than, hooks are only an "accessory" to go harder, faster, stronger... and to jump of course !!

@coach thanks man. I think the cut out has increased the flex, It's not by a huge amount but it helped my riding. I like the width of the 85 but I noticed I was over rotating a lot more than I was with the 83 I tried. I'm a fairly light rider and I think the 85 was a bit too stiff for me. It's probably more noticeable because I'm riding hookless so the bindings aren't there to help control the deck. I'm happy with how it turned out.
