So lately I've felt really weird riding my board. Like I've been getting noodle legs and I've been feeling uneasy when I ride my board. It gets even worse when I pick up a lot of speed. I'm not really sure what it is. Like I get butterflies but they are more like hawks and I get real uneasy. I don't think I'm cut out for downhill. Maybe I just need to learn my slides then I will start feeling better. What do you guys think?

@SteveLee772 that is exactly the slide I've been working on and I think I'm getting it but sometimes after practicing my knee hurts does that mean I'm tucking my back leg wrong? Or that I still have too much weight on it?
Honestly I couldn't tell you much without seeing you do it. Seriously though might be bad forum might just be that you're not used to using them muscles. Skating does work a few odd ones. I know I look like a massive fruit cake at the top of hills but I do the same stretches before skating as I do before my runs. Might help honestly.
Although I am older than most of you guys it seems so maybe its my old man bones xD I'd still be stretching though, wish I would've started sooner. I probably wouldn't be this bad off if I had.
Just go fast and once you get over dead you'll be fine
@steezus sliding isn't the only way to stop, it's just a lot nicer than by car or pavement.
