Thanks IMX. Need more tips on it.

I'll try that. I was doing 38mph in these shots.

If anyone was on Somerset on Easter Mon. It was a cracker of a day for barefooting. We were on pure butter for 4 hours!!! 8) 8)

Was anyone around?

IMX i'm going for another run this weekend and will try a bit faster. Also try and put some more pressure on the balls of my feet.

Try standing a little bit more upright, that should 'flatten' out your feet a little. Don't go increasing the speed too much, I'd say around 40-42mph and see how that feels. Be ready to roll your shoulders and stiffen up if you fall to avoid faceplant 8)

Hey Nevergrew ,kick off those shoes and go barefooting not footing.
I start anyone new to it off the front of a surfboard,put your feet in and slowly increase the speed ,their bum lifts off the board and before they know it they are on their way. Good times.

I definately agree 100% with vision129. Do it yourself, that's what I've done. I used big, fat Kmart thongs and at 80kg I found I could go along on the thongs at about 28mph. I started on a surfboard with feet on nose nd stepped off. I then found I could foot at 34mph minimum. Don't listen to the old diehards who say you have to be going 45mph, it's not true for learning. It is the best! Good luck!
