I've slowed down my run up, and have been trying to use more of my lower body in the throw, but I'm missing something. Somebody had mentioned I might be strong arming my throws, but I don't know if that's the case or not. My arm is never sore after 3-4 rounds on an 18 hole course where I'm throwing as far as I can on at least 9 of them. I can feel the hit, I get a nice audible snap the majority of the time ,but I'm obviously doing something wrong. Please help:(

I just wanted to pick up on part of what JR said because I didn't really explain how you might get your weight forward more. He's right that pushing harder with your left leg is going to help. In the throws from the video you kind of sling it around in a circle with your follow through.
There are a couple of ways to do this, but you really want to focus on getting that weight from your left leg through (instead of around) your shot onto your plat foot (and then again onto your left foot on the follow throw). The video I posted of Avery should help you visualize it.

See what happens when you put the thumb closer to the center of the disc in half inch increments. Your thumb is on the outside of the disc. Too much probably. If you punched the elbow forward faster you'd get the elbow bend angles tighter to get a better snap

That's not to say that I doubt the power of the skateboard kick, but I don't see it in the video, and it's not something I've understood well yet in my quest for better form.
