<p>You want to be careful with that pain in your left knee, as it could get worse if you keep pushing it.</p>
<p>Dropping that right foot means that all of your weight is resting on your left leg, but it's probably bent in a slightly awkward position. That could place a lot of pressure on your knee, particularly the ligaments on the outside and front of the kneecap.</p>
<p>I would recommend trying a few simple exercises for your legs:</p>
<p>- Lunges</p>
<p>- Squats</p>
<p>- Leg presses</p>
<p>If your knee doesn't hurt doing these exercises, it's defintely the result of your posture while on the board. </p>

So I enjoy the occasional cruise on my longboard, the deck of which was made by a friend of mine. Everything goes swimmingly except from time to time, i get this pain in my left knee. I believed it's cause by the pressure on it when i am pushing around, and when i drop my right foot to slow down. Other than that it feels great. I suppose I could losen my trucks a hair so i could carve to control my speed better, but then i'd get speed wobbles more easily when going faster. I think I'll do that, and carve my way to comfort.
