whats up?

i used to skate but quit after messing up my ankle/foot. i stretched a tendon or pinched a nerve (something....lol) inside my foot and it never got back to normal. everytime i would go to kickflip it would hurt like a SOB.

the funny thing is i learned to kickflip on a waterlogged snapped board.

on the grass? laugh.gif

just kidding... kickflips and popshoveits just take to balls to stay over the board, not really any learning done there... heelflips and rotation flips(180, 360) actually kinda do have a trick to them...

i used to skate but stopped cause all the skate parks round here suck and so does all the street....
i learnt to flip before i could ollie properly, used to be able to ollie just over 3ft.
heel flips were far easier to me the kick flips.
pop shuvits are incredibly simpe so are varial kick flips (dont think about the flip treat it as a pop shuvit)
360 flips werent that easy but got the hang of them in the end took about 2 years.
all the rest of the tricks were variations of the above, slides and grinds. also a fair few mini ramp tricks. people used to think i would have got sponsored if i carried on but i gave up lol.
new some insane skaters 2. a few of which have gave up 2 but theres 1 in particular who will be pro im sure!

Skateboardings for fags!!!











































(I'm joking.. Check out my user name jester.gif )


I don't skate as much As I would like to/used to, but that comes with working 43-48 hours a week now.. I still try to skate every once ina while. I'm on a local indoor parks "B" team, I used to be flow on the A team but I lost that when I started skating only a few times a month...

To get on the "B" team you need to :

Land 5 diffent tricks down the 8stair hand rail, any variation is fine.
Land 5 diffent tricks up or down the big euro gap *prety small actually only about 20 inches tall by 38 inches long*
And you need to beat one of the A team Pro members in a game of skate, or atleast come very close SKAT to Skate...

A team I don't even remember what it was but it wasn't easy. But the feeling you get when you ride into the park with your friends that can't skate so good and theyve got there helmets on and youve got yours off and the "bigger" kids who are just there skating. Look at you like you don't know what your doing and they are going to tell on you for not wearign your helmet. Then you do a Tre-flip tail grab over the funbox as a warmup trick and they give you respect.

Tis teh l33t and wish that was still one of my "oh thats just warm up doode" tricks. sad.gif

Now I can only do that after a few tries and not even over the damn fun box only from a launch ramp to flat..

Ha, just back from bombing some local hills (longboard) I used to skate alot in my younger days then it kinda lessened as i got a job and a car, etc. etc. Now I have no board (thanks ryan tongue.gif ) and I would go buy a blank but the two halves which my trucks are attached to have disapeared blink.gif . Best trick ever landed: kickflip underflip (i believe thats what its called) Fav. trick: my non-stop manuals haha. I just recently got into longboarding, it's not as technical but man is it fun flying down those hills laugh.gif plus a couple slides here and there wink.gif
