Well, I've been stuck at not getting past 180 on those nose rolls for almost two seasons now. Whether it was a mental block due to fear, improper form/technique, lack of ability, or all three! Today I got past all of those impediments and progressed when I was beginning to think I never would.

Maybe you are naturally athletic with a shitload of innate talent and ability! Maybe most of this comes relatively easy to you. If so? That's awesome for you!

I am not! I wish I was, but if wishes were fishes,... A lot of this shit does not come easy to me, and when I finally "get" something I've been struggling with,...?


.....you can betcher ass, I'm gonna Spaz like a muthafukah all ova this bitch!!!

i am happy for you that you do have this to spaz out about tho... if that helps any.... and yea, some of this may come easier to those of us who started much earlier - but i absolutely can relate with that feeling of accomplishment....


...i believe it is what we refer to in the parlance of the genre as "stoked", brah.

Well Shred, my biggest reason for spazing like a little girl at a boy band concert,... I really was beginning to think I'd "peaked" with only getting a few simple flatland tricks down! I'm still having a hell of a time with balance and stability anytime I try to get any small air, ollie, nollie, pop, whatever.

The fact that this just "clicked" all of the sudden and at once after trying and failing for so long? It gives me real hope that I may get there with those other skills I am still blocked and failing at!

Today was a lot like that first day where linking turns clicked!!! Same thrill, excitement, and more importantly,.. same realization of the potential for more to come!!

You're only Young Once,.. but you can be Immature FOREVER!
