Title: How to STOP Pushing Mongo! (Fast and Easy)
Post by: XS Progression on June 04, 2019, 10:13:29 AM
 

 
Whats up?

So pushing mongo is a very common practice, especially for people just starting to skate. When I got started, I pushed mongo for years until finally fixing it. Since I came across an opportunity to help others with pushing mongo, I decided to make a video explaining why its not a good habit and how to easily and quickly get out of the habit! If you are pushing mongo, here is the short video (3 and a half minutes) on how you can switch your habit in a day! If you know someone who pushing mongo, feel free to share this video with them and help them break the habit! It gives more stability and balance, and makes setting up for tricks much faster when you push regularly! Hope this is helpful!

that's pretty insensitive..

mongo isn't a choice, it's how you're born

you can pretend, but you know deep down you love the mongo and it will come out when you're drunk at a memorial day picnic twenty years down the line shattering the familial illusion you've used as a coping mechanism

I pushed mongo for a long time and corrected it late in the game but since then I've felt untrue to myself. I am quite simply not #livingmybestlife and can't even get out of bed some days, knowing I sold out my chicken foot. Fuck you.

I never could skate mongo even though i tried. Many of the best skaters at the time pushed mongo for switch tricks.
Can't be any tougher than a normal person (nonmongo) learning to push switch. Just takes time and persistence.

Post by: DanTheDoucher on June 05, 2019, 06:46:10 PM
I donít push mongo when Iím going to do a fakie or switch trick. I push regular like I would for a normal trick, but once Iím at the right speed I sort of just hop up and slide my left foot back and put my right foot at the front.

The push isnít mongo but getting on the board is mongo-ish.

Is this whole forum board full of trolls? Or do you guys actually skate too? Pushing with your back foot on the board makes it way harder to set up for tricks quickly, messes up balance while pushing and makes it more likely to trip over the board while running up and pushing. Tryna help some people who skate with something commonly talked about, but overlooked when learning. I know it helped me a lot to not push mongo anymore

It's nicknames he just used but you should be able to recognize who they are refering to (they all have their right last name) and effectively look them up if you're especially interested in mongo pushing.

Also many people like Ali Boulala used to push mongo for years and only later fixed their stance. I didn't watch your video so maybe you already covered that.

Post by: Beeker on June 08, 2019, 04:36:50 PM
I was able to quit pushing mongo pretty much immediately once I found out it was frowned upon, but I totally disagree with the whole faster setup thing.

I pop off the tip of my tail, so it's really uncomfortable to setup my front foot with my back foot like that. I'm pushing, putting my back foot on the board (usually over the bolts), setting my front foot, then setting my back foot. Pushing mongo (which I don't actually do anymore) I can push, set my front foot, then set my back foot.

Never really thought about it much. Probably why I suck at quick set-ups. Are you guys setting your front foot with your back foot already 100% set in ollie position? I could do it, but it just doesn't feel right, especially for something like a heel flip or varial heel.

Sooo.

I blew my acl dec 2016. I was forced to learn to push switch after pushing sw Mongoloid since I started in the 80s.

Thereís a hill outside thatís not too big and I also used the bridge that goes over the tracks to the park.

Pushing up hill will give you balance if you slip backwards the board will come back to you. Itís also like lifting weights.

I skated between spots switch
To the store etc for an entire winter 

Today people ask what stance are you? It makes me happy.

If it worked for me at age 39 it will work for everyone.

They all push mongo. Every kid Iíve taken off a scooter and put on a board goes to push mongo.

Look at grossoís kid. He gave him a scooter.

1. figure out which leg is your front one (left for regs, right for goofy).

2. remove your shoe and using your front leg, kick a brick wall, driving your big toe straight into the surface and perhaps breaking it, at least injuring it significantly.

3. continue skateboarding every day despite the pain and discomfort. the need to keep that toe immobile over the next month will cure what ails you, guaranteed.
