How do you fix a wobbly longboard?
Get low, relax your legs and focus on keeping your upper body over your board and positioned slightly forward. Attack the hill and if your board starts to wobble, stay relaxed and confident. Practice Slowing Down & Stopping!
Is my longboard supposed to be wobbly?
A wobbly skateboard isn’t a bad thing, some actually like to ride their trucks super loose. Beginners will have a harder time learning to ride a skateboard with loose trucks. After all, a more stable board will help you keep your balance. Just be sure to break bushings in and don’t tighten them until you squish them.
Why is my skateboard wobbling?
Sometimes wobble occurs when the bushings in your trucks are too loose or soft. When your trucks are too loose they are more sensitive to weight distribution and they turn more easily – at a high speed this can cause the board to react to external factors and wobble back and forth.
How can I make my longboard more stable?
The easiest option to make your TKP more stable (ie, make your skateboard stable), is to simply tighten down the kingpin nut. Doing this makes the bushings deform and bunch up, and it makes your truck feel more stable.
How loose should my longboard wheels be?
Your wheels should be as tight as possible to the axle. This can be accomplished by purchasing bearing spacers unless you have them. After having them you should tighten the nut as hard as possible while your wheel having mobility to spin freely. Tighten those suckers down, but only if you have spacers.
