if you do / have done some board riding sports or similar balance activities, e.g. perhaps riding the train without holding the handles, how do you think that relates to your IMA ability or training to work on your root? do you relate it to "dantian rotation" at all? what other analogies or connections do you see here?

:)
I use to ride the tram w/o keepin` the handle, and in fact I still do from time to time,
but
no DT rotation or any fancy staff, as Ron posted - sinking bellow and allow the body to keep equilibrium,
very interesting play, when is crowdy and you trying do not touch anybody.
Relation to IMA? -
-checking out your equilibrium w/o been punching in to the face...

Modern skateboarding and surfing have little to do with stepping
Both are good athletic workouts and work balance and body touqe
Riding a mal involves stepping and pak or is much better than skateboarding for overall body mechanics
Any sport can have flow on effects
Don't put power into the form let it naturally arise from the form

I noticed it is fun to ride the train without holding on. It feels like a large skateboard to me. I was trying to sort of let my hips kind of "float".

The only other board sport I ever tried was windsurfing. It's a little different because your upper body is definitely involved. Doesn't seem similar to push hands or any MA to me. You may need to lean back to balance the wind pushing the sail away from you, which isn't exactly "yield" or "peng". There is some interesting footwork involved in turning that I don't really know, though.

Most older wind boarders I know have pretty hunched backs
