Drop Knee on a Skate Longboard

I’m always working to incorporate longboard surfing movements into my skating. To be somewhat ready once the right wave comes my way. I guess. After starting to figure out a tail first drop-in (or take-off) carving into the subsequent 180 on a bank or transition, I now start to work on drop-knee turns. The proper hard one, which is a cross-stance. It’s about as hard as a switch foot kick-turn. So, being a good 21st century skater, I searched for tips on the internet and this site is basically all that comes up. But it’s great putting it all into perspective, surfing and history wise!
