Frontside slappies. Havenít done them before today. I got pretty faded and decided to try one and it almost worked, a couple more attempts did it.
Sick, really want to learn slappies this year! A few parks have the perfect curbs to learn on just kinda scared to mash em frontside or backside lol.

I was skating our diy yesterday and I was feeling a bit off, kinda just cruised and drank beers more than real skating when all of a sudden this guy in a wheelchair arrived, just parked his chair at the other corner where people were. Of course being a bit drunk and social fucker that I am I asked him to join the crew and in no time he was there cruising,doing manuals and shit and man, that gave me a blast to actually skate instead of drinking/chitchatting. Best sessions this year so far :)
Reading this made me happy.

Went riding around my Bermuda triangle after a bit of Red Hooks on the way to another bottle shop an lo and behold came across a grindable U Haul sittin on Beach Blvd across from that one spot Keenan Milton sskf'ed years ago...

On one attempt I rolled away a unicycle rider rollin down the street gave me props... I instantly laughed because that was the last thing I'd expected to see. After landing it a 2nd time I continued to do more tricks over gaps and up and down curbs till I reached home n called it a day...

Went to a park today which is a bit out of town and had a good session with a park filled with only skateboarders, that doesn't happen often and made my day, also re-learnt FS sugarcane grinds on transition again which was nice.

Back 360's on flat. Backside smith grinds on low ledges, just higher than curbs. Feels so nice grinding them so low to the ground.

The smell of lilacs wafting by as I skated a spot this morning with my son (he rides a tiny bicycle while I skate).

It's been rainy for the past few days, and yesterday I passed on going to an indoor park to run errands and meet my ex to finalize our shared lease ending. I was pretty anxious about it and then she bailed which made me feel worse, so I decided to go skate a nearby parking garage by myself and instantly felt so much better. There's a lot of wholesome and corny stuff I could write about this, but in short, skateboarding is pretty great. :)

Landed 7/9 kickflip attempts last night before my injured knee told me to limp home.

Ingenuity. The three of us were pretty high and my homie pulled a box spring and put it at the top of the bank we were skating and started skating it as a lip.

I saw your mom do a ollie to cooch drop straight down the big black pole, it was gnarly. she defiantly shut that shit down.

Being on the other side of the camera for a change and landing a line I've been meaning to film in over a year, at a spot that is the worst (but looks good on footy).

yesterday I had a fucking shit day to the point where I didn't even feel like skating (or eating, or really nothing). friend called me out of the blue around 9pm saying he was going to the park for half an hour before it would get dark; for the lack of anything better to do and in need of fresh air I figured I'd change my mind, kick myself in the ass and go. I wasn't expecting much out of the session, feeling tired and unmotivated but actually, as soon as I got there I started skating lines like a motherfucker. I guess I really needed some kind of outlet or release that day; we all know skateboarding does wonders in those regards, but now I was on some kung-fu shit, I didn't even know my legs still had that energy. I just kept doing trick after trick for 20 minutes, barely missed anything, stringing together 7 trick lines all over the park and jumping back on my board to keep going as soon as I'd actually bail something. my sessions normally last anywhere from 2 or 3 to 10 hours on good days and I'm always told I have the most endurance, but there after less than half an hour I had done all my tricks, some new ones and I was fried. like I invested a whole afternoon worth of energy into half an hour, to the point where I started feeling dizzy so I just left with my friends who had already been at it for a while by themselves and we got food and chilled.

TLDR - the skateboarding equivalent of a quickie where I surprised myself with energy I didn't even expect to have half of in me

Skated by myself last night and it was awesome.

Usually I will go with a couple homies to whatever nearby skatepark we choose to go to. However, last night I decided to go by myself, and it was nice. I could come and go whenever I chose, and I didn't have to wait around for anyone. Plus, I had a really good session, and I was having a good time cruising around .. until I broke my tail and had to end the session prematurely.

yesterdays lunch time sesh
completely eating shit within a minute of entering the park rolling into a 3 foot mellow quarterpipe.
sometimes a nice body slam first thing really speeds up the warm up process. and that is exactly what happened here. ended up being a fun session.

so true, love a little sack of potatoes within the first minutes of the session as a wake up-warm  up call

my kickflip has never been particularly pretty but it used to at least be fairly consistent. hadn't had a real fuck yeah kickflip in too long. until today. a couple of them actually. felt like i was breaking the kickflip curse. it was kinda rainy though.  i eventually popped into a bank, slid out, and gronked my head pretty good. still hyped on the fuckin kickflips though.

Drinking bum wine in large quantities and hearing a teen praise the virtues and skill of "Cory Cedepa". I didn't have it in me to correct him, but some other guy coolguyed him then said Cepeda sucks and the conversation topic kinda petered out.

Came home from work today to a new pair of shoes in the mail and an empty house. So naturally, I rocked a flat ground sash in the basement.

Learned how to ollie north/one foot - which I'm so happy about. I've had a multi-year long mental battle with them and today they just felt so natural.

Skating is my fucking favourite.

Yesterday caught a sunset session at a park I don't usually get to skate anymore.
Instead of only skating the ledge I found myself skating the 3 block. It's not that I don't jump down things anymore, its just that when I do its normally when out in the streets trying for a clip. I haven't had a session where I practiced my gap tricks in a while.
It was a solid session until I snapped my skate on a bigspin, just as rainclouds started blowing in. I was reminded why I stopped skating gaps/stairs at skateparks...
You could see rain evaporating off the ground miles away, the sunshine shining through it looked unreal. Definitely stomping out the bigspin next time with a freshie, and I should probably abandon my stupid mindset of not skating gaps and stairs at parks, its just that I got sick of breaking and setting up boards when it wasn't worth it.

I skated for almost four and a half hours today and I'm sore as fuck. Feels good. It was hot and we had a few beers and tons of water. Gonna feel it tomorrow.
