2011-09-03 Very very beginning skateboarding

Posted 09-04-2011 at 03:01 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Started today. I found my snowboarding helmet and removed the snowboarding-related stuff like the ear covers and the goggle-strap hook on the back. I should get a proper summer helmet when I get a chance. Also some gloves and maybe knee pads.

Anyway, first time on the board was in my garage. The floor's nice and flat, controlled environment, and no audience . The first thing I ran into is my skating has to be different. I skate by pushing on my heel edge in snowboarding,...

Bought a skateboard. Damn, I'm a pathetic addicted SOB. Hopefully this will give me my fix until the season starts. The balance beam is helping my balance and all, and well worth doing, but it's not inspiring.

2011-08-02 Balance Beam Progress?

Posted 08-02-2011 at 12:12 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Did the balance beam twice this weekend. I'm getting better endurance (just a bit). I no longer feel like I'm about to cough up a lung after 5 minutes.

I haven't reached the point yet of being comfortable with any of the moves, though. I still have the newbie hesitation with anything more complicated than a straight hop on or off. And I absolutely can't 180 from a boardslide to lipslide or vise-versa yet. I think that just needs more work to get my balance better.
