When riding in a group down a big hill, you need to understand how to maintain a safe distance from riders around you. Being able to manage your space and ride safely with other riders in a tight pack is extremeley fun to do when downhill skateboarding, however it can add extra risk and cause an accident if not managed with the right skills.
Being able to simply hold another rider at a certain distance from you without giving him an extra speed boost or slow you down can get you out of those tricky tight situations. Barging through and hoping for a gap is always going to end in carnage.

For most of the last 6 years I've been a traveling vagabond following my passion for rock climbing. This existence involved sleeping outside in wild places, hitching rides, having very little belongings, a drained bank account and some gourmet dumpster diving for food. I climbed everyday and lived my dream.
These days I'm a domesticated man. By most people's standards I'm still living in the ghetto with my 1988 beater car and trailer-like house. Each day I find time to escape to the nearby rock spires and bag a summit. Making this creative short I realized that I still live my dream everyday...!
