How to pump on a skateboard:

  1. Stretch yourself out. Get nice, warm, and limber. Place your lead foot on the center or just below the front trucks. Push off with your trailing foot, giving a few hard kicks. Once you are going put your trailing foot just below the tail.
  2. Take a head on position. Move your legs side to side, your hips will follow. The tighter the motion the tighter the movement of the board from left to right. Work the legs and hips in unison causing the board to sway with you.
  3. The quicker your movement, the faster you will go. You can take breaks from time to time, as the pumping motion will develop speed. You can place cones or other small obstacles to move around as you pump.
