i also tried my hand at skateboarding recently after a 3 year pause (due to snowboarding, but that really isnt a good excuse)
much to my chagrin, i thought i could skate like i used to and ended up makin an ass out of myself at the local park in oxnard.
here i am a few weeks later and im learning tricks i never attempted before. makes me that much more stoked about the upcoming season
my logic is telling me that if i can get ballsy on rails and concrete, attempting 5's and 7's on snow should be a cakewalk
