ok i was thinking and made up a new way of going over cracks I think
Here it is: When there is a crack put back foot down and step over the crack with front foot then push off with back foot and keep heeling. i know that a lot of you guys dont need to cause you have megas(which i want to get. i have small fats Crying or Very sad ) but for all those that cant go over many cracks you can try this. Tell me what you think and post your own!

I've been learning on normal wheels. I have sort of taught this to myself over time.

just lift up your front foot and your back foot she roll over. The other way takes too much effort with the pushing and stuff. This way you just have to lift up and still maintain the same speed

i just put less presure on the foot thats going over the crack, when my bront foot goes over, ilean more on my back. back foot, lean more on front, usually works

One thing people will notice is that when I skate, I skate FAST.

This is because I invented the Kickswitch around .. um .. 5 years ago. It changed Heeling (for me) forever.

Since street skating has taken a back seat, its been kind of a "lost art". But its really one of the most fundamental skills.

Just plant your kickswitch right on the crack and switch right over it.
Problem solved.

Keep Heeling Dude!
