How to STOP Pushing Mongo! (Fast and Easy)
« 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!

Everyone agreed we needed some muscle so I added the menacing look to the squad we'll see if it makes a difference.

"mongo" is an ableist term. Right up there with the R word, which you dudes have no problem with so I guess carry on.
No.

Honestly I think our chap is looking wonderful in there. You really provided him with a family first thing upon sight, that's very adorable of you.

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.

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.
FUCK YOU
