Switch Stance Lessons Skogging Community

Skogging Definition
SKATEBOARDING - Asymmetrical and pedi-dextrously speaking, this site dispels any notions that Chris Yandall invented switch stance or pushing with both legs. Chris is simply encouraging all skateboarders to look at switching it up for push, pump and carving movements. His style utitilizes all of these movements which culminates in the act of skogging. He aggressively promotes and demonstrates the movement daily.

He recommends this especially for those skaters that want more out of their skating. Skogging is an addition to whipping downhill runs and high impact transition riding. It's good for your body because it trains you to feel like a gyroscope while transitioning from one leg to the next while rapidly pushing.

Overall, and cutting to the chase, it's simply Chris Yandall's 40 plus years of skateboarding style mixing his self-generated speed run on the flats, alternating legs for pushing, switch stance and pumping while moving forward 10-12mph for long distances and boogeying to his favorite tunes. Plus, it's a good way to get simple exercise quickly which is one great evening of the field for skateboards in general.

Skogging supports the USADSA organization that has a mission to breathe more life into the skateboard industry with full scale distance skateboarding.

Chris Yandall was pre-dogtown era and skated with the infamous Dogtowners Tony Alva and Jay Adams at a San Diego City run skateboard contest(1974-75) at Kate Sessions in Pacific Beach where he took 1st Place. Chris Yandall was 1975 World Slalom Downhill Champion at San Diego "Jack Murphy" stadium and earlier in the year, downhill champ at the Del Mar Contest featured in the "Dogtown" movie.

Sk8 Kings Chris has designed a unique riding system using variety of wheel set-ups for long distance one-footed switch skateboarding on a very basic flat designed deck which outperforms most skateboards at a fraction of the cost. A full nose and tail with limited flex and radded nose trucks and de-radded rear trucks, with 75-80mm wheels. His complete production board is available at SK8Kings. Why would should you buy one? Because it's been carefully designed to help pedi-dextrous efforts and introduce downhill racing turning arcs. And this board will last a life-time with minimum maintenance for new wheels and bearings through the years, easy to pack in overhead storage on planes, fits well in closets and is easy to carry.
