Stoked that we just got a new skatepark:
Jamestown Skatepark | Soaring Up Skate Park | Gateway Center Jamestown
scroll down to see a picture slideshow.

at 39 I have to re-learn all my old tricks. It only took an hour to be slashing mean FS and BS grinds like I was a kid again. But a simple fakie rock was too scary. So I'm going back with pads to conquer my fear.

Check out this clover-type bowl that's in the works... I cannot wait!

Looks like a cool park but it's run by Christians, so I hope they don't get preachy. If they don't then skate on man

Only on the wall in the bathroom are you "forced" to read inspirational quotes from the Bible. The whole center is run by a Christian Organization who has funded the construction. They have allowed two local shops (the bike shop and Suburban Blend) to build whatever we wanted. The rest of the facility has stuff for all ages, like an arcade, coffee shop lounge, indoor archery, pool tables and more. This is the coolest indoor facility I've ever seen and right across from the Hospital!

I personally would preach to you but I'm the only disciple/skater I know from there so far. FYI Jesus died today (2000 years ago on Good Friday) for challenging the High Priests. Read Matthew 23-25 where Jesus "goes off" on the Pharisees.

I just tightened down my hardware and was busting out some simple tricks in my room better than I think I ever have. Still having issues with the kickflip, I always rotate doubles or triples and I cant control it. however I got my heelflips on lock so Im all good.

Setup:
Element deck
Krux mid's
Bones swiss
Bones 100 wheels
My biggest problem with kickfliups was I had to make sure that before i popped I was completely balanced and my weight was centered. Also when you flick try to flick more diagonal off the nose instead of the side.
Currently I'm working on getting back into last seasons form. I Landed a kickflip down a 3 stair and this year I think i could do a heel down it too.
Foundation 7.75 soon to be Exit 8.0
indy trucks
Bones swiss
Bones STF
Can't forget the SB Blazers

Who wants to give me some ollie help? Comes easy for some, not so easy for me

I used to skateboard a while back but never got the ollie down. I was just fine with rockin the pipe and strollin through without getting technical. Then it became a fruit booter then quit it all together.

A friend gave me his skateboard since he bought one but never got into it. Good condition still.

Anyways,
When I pop my ollie, I get one of two situations.

I land with my feet in the right areas, but only my heel is on the board or My front foot comes down and smashes the nose and my backfoot is not to be found.

Chickenfoot, it's a problem that usually goes away with a lot of practice and more confidence in tricks. I really struggled with this for years when ollieing up steps and ledges.

This is the steps to the ollie:
1: place back foot on tail, place front foot an inch or two from the front trucks.
2: bend knees, make sure your shoulders are square over the board. balance is important
3: slap the tail down
4: suck your legs up in the air with the board traveling with your feet
5: center your feet over the trucks and land with knees bent

Practice this 100 times a day and you'll eventually get it, also try to learn ollies while rolling. It's a lot to think about in less than a second but eventually it will become second nature.
