Longboard Clinic: Walk like you mean it

Ever heard or made statements like this?
"Cross step, It's a pose, a trick for midgets.” Or “It aint functional, it don't matter how ya get there as long as ya get there, right?" Wrong!
God knows I've been guilty of such statements myself in the past.

Fact is nothing could be further from the truth. Granted a nice smooth cross step will always look considerably better than a shuffle any day of the week. This is especially true when performed by the more talented proponents of our art form both male and female, past and present, hence the unfair accusation of it being a pose. However even when performed by the less agile members of our community such as myself, it quickly becomes apparent exactly why a well executed cross step is so important.
