Going Down Curved Steps Forward

By: Leandre Casselman

This is an advanced trick. Try it with someone behind you and in front of you for the first time. Use only on long steps so that you can pause between each step. If you are going to fall, fall backwards, not forwards. A way you can remember which way to fall is to make sure you put the hotter girl behind you.

The only difference with going down a stairwell that curves is you need to make sure your wheels are lined up perpendicular to each step so that both wheel descend at exactly the same time. In addition you want to descend towards the outside of the stairwell where the steps are longer to afford the most room to manoeuvre and stop on each step.
