skateboard experiment

I am in the sixth grade and experimenting with my skateboard. I want to
know if more weight makes it go faster. I am testing rolling it down a hill
with no weight and with 25 pounds of weights and the heavier the faster it
goes. I can't figure out why. I read the gallileo feather experiment on
your web site that I found through 'ask jeeves'.
thanks, Ben
