Which one is better to learn, drift board or skateboard ? how to play ?

.What is a drift board

Drift board was first invented by American extreme sportsman Ryan Farrelly in 2004. It was originally inspired by alpine skiing, so drift board became land-based skiing. The drift board is free to slide into two boards on the left and right, marked with L and R respectively, and the left and the right cannot be confused. The drift board is composed of two PU wheels, board surface, sandpaper, bearings and nuts. The wheels are made of advanced PU material, and the board surface is made of magnesium-aluminum alloy, which is cast and durable; the bearings are 608Z professional skateboard bearings, which have fast speed and long life.

.The Features of drift board

Drift board is characterized by light weight, small size, easy to carry, you can take it anywhere. Walk as you want, or slip as you like. The two wheels are independent, one on each foot. The postures of the inner and outer horoscopes are continuously changed by relying on the two feet, swinging and moving forward, without the need to push and slide with the feet, and can do various fancy changes. The speed can be controlled freely, the direction can be changed freely, and it can be rotated on the spot. When going uphill and downhill, you can swing in an S shape and swim like a fish. On a flat road, it will become the smallest and lightest means of transportation in the crowd. With the exercise of waist twisting and hip twisting, it can achieve slimming effect, which is the new favorite of girls' fashion.

. How does the drift board slip?

1.Flat Fancy

Slide left and right on the ground

Most people learn one direction at the beginning. When you learn one direction, it will be more difficult to learn another direction. Therefore, it is recommended to start learning in both directions with the railing, because if you want to advance, it is the easiest fancy move. 180 needs to be used on both sides.


Brake: Left enter the front brake and rear brake; right enter the front brake and rear brake; double brake; T brake; shovel brake.


Four items of 180, four items of 360; 540, 720, 1080, unlimited rotation.

Lost board

Loss is also called toss. There are roughly four types: single loss and double loss. Single loss includes straight loss, front loss, back loss, and side loss. Flap loss includes front flip and follow-up flip, and spin loss includes Rotating clockwise throws and counterclockwise throwing. Double throws include straight throws with both hands, flip throws with two hands and throws with one-handed throws. That's all for losing boards!

One foot

One foot has a forward single and a back single, a reverse front and a back single, and the front and back singles draw the board.

Pass the pile

There are about four types of piles: swinging your feet back and forth through the pile, swinging your feet together (the waist exerts force) through the pile, crossing the pile with your feet (the pile passes through the gap where the legs cross), and your feet are straight (two feet The slip-out route is two disjoint parallel lines, the pile passes through the middle).

Change board

Including double swap and single swap.

Cross legs

This kind of fancy is more and more casual, the common four-athlon cross loose board, four-athlon cross back loose, cross turn, cross change board, cross kick, cross OT and so on.


Step down: Grab the board and go down the steps, without grasping the board, and jump; Step up: jump and directly go up the stairs (the feet do not leave the board).

2.Speed drop

Speed descent does not have very high technical requirements but has a relatively high risk factor, but the most stimulating thing is speed descent. The most important technical requirement is to slow down, that is, to take the big S route. (It is recommended that beginners do not rush, If you rush, you should start with a relatively gentle slope, and then slowly increase the gradient of the slope), and finally add one more sentence: It is best to go to a place with few people and cars, and the most important thing is safety first!

3.U pool

The basic skills must be solid to get into the U pool, and the difficulty and risk factors are relatively high. Also due to site restrictions, the domestic U pool level is not high. There may be more and more difficult movements afterwards. The drift board will always bring us new surprises!


The main action of the drift board block is "jump jumping". The jump jump is a set of actions in which a person and the board hop into the air and step on them. The block actions include jumping, stepping without grasping the board, and borrowing props. . The main types of kick jump include: kick jump body 180., 360, flip board, throw board. Non-grabbing categories include: stepping up and down, flipping and hooking, etc. The borrowed props are: flying platform, iron rod, step, etc. The block mainly pursues the freedom and excitement of the drift board, which has a strong appreciation.

. Drift board skill level

Level 1: Downhill on a gentle ramp, speed control.

Level 2: normal forward, static-forward-turn-stop. Enter left + enter right.

Level 3: ramp down + up.

Level 4: 180-degree swing (half circle), two swings without landing. One way forward.

Level 5: 180-degree roundabout (half circle), without landing, left and right forwards twice each, a total of four rounds.

Level 6: 360-degree roundabout (one circle), two rounds without landing. One way forward.

Level 7: Go forward on one foot (forefoot). It takes more than 2.5 meters (about the width of the car parking space) to go forward without landing.

Level 8: Swivel above 540 degrees (above one and a half circles), which must be smooth and uninterrupted.

Level 9 to Level 10: Seven skills are integrated, subject to completion without landing.

1.360-degree single-foot maneuvers stepping on the board.

2.Rotate the board with one foot at 180 degrees.

3.Turn around and step on the board.

4.Raise the board and advance with one foot.

5.360-degree roundabout.

6.540 degree roundabout.

7.720 degree roundabout.

. which is easy to learn drift board or skateboard

1.Drift board

If you have the basics of dragon skateboarding, it will be easy to get started with driftboard.

When sliding on a flat ground, it is quite affected by the road conditions, and it is easy to fall if you trip on a slightly larger stone or something.

Brushing uphill requires a Z-shaped landslide, and the drift board can also be used to slide down the slope. Using an S-shaped sliding big bend can avoid too fast speed.

And the drift board can't carry too many things on the body, it's almost enough to pack two books on your shoulders, otherwise it is not easy to grasp the balance.

Since the drift board is stepped on under your feet, you can step on it in crowded places such as turning or something. As long as you don't bump into people, you can still get a glimpse if you play well.

If the drift board brakes suddenly, you can just jump off. The board is small, and even if it flies out, the possibility of hurting passersby is very small.


In the beginning, if you don't have any foundation, it may be more difficult to stand on the board, but it is relatively easy for a skateboard to slide.

But skateboarding is not just about sliding. If you don’t know how to springboard, you don’t know how to skateboard. Getting started with skateboarding is easy but difficult to advance.

If you use a skateboard to brush the street, as long as you have a good balance, the road conditions will not have much impact, and you can pass smoothly with small stones.

Skateboarding uphill is more tiring, because the downhill is fast and the board is big, so it is easier to hurt people if the pedestrians are crowded.
