The Yips

Anyone know people that experience “the yips” while skating?  Seems like it would be fertile ground for that shit to develop.  I remember Chuck Knoblauch and Rick Ankiel going through that shit.  Charles Barkley’s are actually pretty disturbing to watch:

I had it on noseslides for a long time because it's an incredibly easy trick that I ate ABSOLUTE shit on. My toe was off the nose just a hair, I stuck to the ledge and I flew right to my chin. Had to relearn them like a punk.
