So I've only been skating a little under a month now and can do a few things. I can boardslide and 50-50 the rails I built, I can ollie most of the time moving, pop shuvit, this weird fingerflip while im on my tail thing, nose stalls to 10 inches or so, workin on 360 flip, kickflip and heelflip right now (terribly) and constantly workin on ollies. Most of the time I like riding up this 6 foot ramp I have built. its an 8'x2'x12" box on a 6'x4'x10" ramp with the box proped up on a trailer and the ramp on a couple 2"x4"s, its pretty gnarly. I love bombing hills also so Im picking up a freebord in the next week or so. I used to skate 10 years ago, could barely even ollie. Dont think Im doing to bad for less than a month on a skateboard. My buddy who started up with me can ollie like a foot already, its ok though because I can nose stall, boardslide and getting closer to 360 flips than he is. Overall were having a blast since their isnt snow anymore.

Well, spring is springing and it's about that time again...

Last year I didn't get to skate nearly as much as I wanted because of my sprained ankle, as mentioned in the second post above this one. I also experienced some pain in that thing throughout the snowboarding season.

About to cop a shop board from my local shop, Black Sheep. It's a collaboration with Real.

My new pro-tec park pads will be at my place today when I get home. I will be hitting pools and parks this weekend with more protection than I've ever had in skateboarding. Back in the day, I wore knee pads a lot for ramp and pool and sometimes elbow, but never a helmet. Now I'll be using the Bern helmet I've had for a couple of years and the Pro-tec pads.

Stoked!

That sucks... last spring, I sprained my ankle on my first park day of the year. Not as bad as your injury, but I know where you are to some degree... cheers to a quick recovery!

How's recovery coming, grafta?

I've been hitting the park a bit and getting into summer riding shape seems to be more hellish every year.

It's HOT out here.

i'm 3 weeks post surgery and have been in a 'walker' boot with 1.5" heel lift and crutches. i'm stuck with this one for another 3 weeks then can get rid of heel lift...but will still be in boot.

all's well really, just SLOW

worked out i got bout 4 months to get it back to riding strength for next season. its a good goal. can take up to 12 months for different people but i'm not even considering that as an option!
