Default Skateboarding!

Now that the snow is gone, or if you have snow and you get to ride at an indoor park, lets talk skateboarding.

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

might just be that you need to slow it down to get the right rotation.

I'm really stoked to go skating too, but it just snowed again today! This year i'm going to really try and lock down my tail slides and learn how to ollie on an uphill angle on to an object.

setup:
Almost Haslam Impact Deck
Venture Trucks
Autobahn Wheels
Bones Swiss Labyrinth bearings

I honestly just broke out a board for the first time in yrs...

Kickflips and 180 flips are still pretty routine (surprised!!!)... 360 flips are a little more difficult and impossibles are there, but just barely.

I haven't been to any curbs, steps, gaps, etc yet, nor have I been to any parks, but that will happen within the next couple of weeks... keep me in your prayers!

The Dinosaur Jr. one is sweet, I fucking love that band.

I've been thinking about getting an old school board too, for cruising bowls
