Renowned in longboard circles for its stability and agility, the Loaded dervish board is ideal for longboard tricks known as dancing. Dancing, as its name implies, involves fancy footwork while riding on the board. Longboarders often look at the complexity of the footwork and the smoothness and gracefulness in how the maneuvers on the board are carried out. Here are a few simple tips to get you started on dancing on your board.

The first thing to remember is to always use safety gear. This means that always wear a helmet, elbow pads and knee pads when using your longboard.

One basic trick you can try out is the toe-side cross step. First place your feet close to the toeside of the board and shift the foot in front closer to the foot in the back. Make sure that when you shift your front-foot, it remains on the toeside of the board and facing towards the front.

The next step is to shift your back-foot forward, crossing it over your front-foot still keeping both feet on the toeside of the board. Your feet should be facing forward slightly at a forty-five degree angle. Your back-foot is now the new front with the old front now your new back foot.

Next, using your new back foot, step forward towards the front, shifting to the heelside of the board. When shifting your new back, it should pass behind your new front foot. Notice that your new back has once again become your front foot and your new front foot is once more in the back.

Shift your back close to your front towards the heelside of your board then, staying on the heelside of your board, take your front foot and cross it behind your back foot towards the rear side of the board. Once more, your legs are crossed and your back foot is again your new front foot.

Finally take you’re your new back foot back to the toeside of the board and assume the regular riding position.
This trick can be repeated several times or used in combination with other dancing tricks to make it look more complex.
