Welcome To Core Skills

Think of core skills as being like the foundation a building is built upon. The stronger the foundation, the stronger the building. While we often get caught up in the next skill we hope to learn, keeping your base in perfect form will make everything you learn work better. When I teach pro riders, we often focus solely on Core Skills, as those athletes understand the importance of creating a super solid base layer upon which to add their other skills.
