Well I tried it down one hill, the only one close to me. It's not that steep but it was wicked.
I never skateboarded as a kid, I only just started longboarding 2 years ago.
So I can't ollie a normal skateboard, never owned one.
I've tried before & can do the motion but never actually land on the board, so there is no way I would ever attempt to ollie up a curb. I'd eat shit 100%, no doubt in my mind.
I also can't do 180% slides & end up riding switch. I can do a Coleman to a stop.
That's the highlight of my repertoire. So all I can do is, go fast, carve & stop.
Down this little dinky hill tonight I was able to jump on & off curbs parallel to me while going down it, as well as 180's.
I was going pretty slow & I'm sure if I had recorded it, I would laugh with ya, but for me, I can't do that on a regular longboard or skateboard.
So It was magical, all of the sudden I could do jumps up & down any curb, instantly snowboarding took over. I found myself scoping out the best line tryin' to maximize my ride, basically do all the basic shit I always wished I could.
So I'm off to find a bigger hill then maybe the skate park, I've only been there once & never skated so not sure if it has lights or not?
Ya, ya, I'll bring my camera, Don't plan on killing myself though.
I might wipe out once or twice, but I don't plan on doin' that either. It sucks.
It has a bowl sorta thing there, in my head I can see myself being able to pump it & maybe get above the lip.
Maybe, or close to the lip. I don't know, seems a bit much, but that's my goal.
Predictions? What do ya think, never skateboarded, can't ollie.
Fire away, this should be good.
If whatever doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger.
Then I am so close to immortality
