Been street skating a lot more often this year and even filming. Pretty sure I've gotten at least one clip every time I've gone out in the past few weeks, and for me that feels really good. Yesterday I got up early to help with some new additions to our local DIY (which I'm hella geeked about) then followed it up with a day in the city where we ran into a bunch of other folks and had a blast. And on top of all that, I just got a Christmas Complete to celebrate a new job which has only amplified the weekend stoke.

I'm sick today and can't skate, but I'm just pretty giddy about skateboarding in general lately.  :)

smoking up and skating flat in a silky smooth car park, board control was so much better with all my flatground shit by the end of the day. Got a bunch of tricks on lockdown that have been bugging me or not feeling right recently as a result of the durex thin feel™ board control, got into some solid back and forth battles fucking around with some games of skate with a homie in which both of us got new stunts down, feels good mayn

Started my 4 week long holiday yesterday, street skating with my crew. I’ve been working so much that there was plenty of ”new” spots for me, got some footage as well so it was a good day! Today I feel sore as hell but happy 😊

Cool cop.
So, we're at this bench on a public sidewalk. Some super citizen stops and tells us we can't be skating. We're not trying to listen to this guy. So he calls the cops. We keep skating. Dude waited like 20 minutes, then left. Another 10 minutes or so and the cop showed up. Tells us nicely to move along. But instead of saying go to the skatepark, which I've heard a lot, he proceeds to clue us in on all the street spots he knows about and we might like.

skating by myself at night, everything i land is good. no standards or anything, ollieing trash of a curb or slappy noseslides takes me back to the 90s.
people in the neighborhood leave me alone now, i'll get a little 'civilian props' but nobody's asked me to kf or yelled 'do a trick' this yr.

Simply that I did it...well kinda. I'm 45 with a torn meniscus and a surgically repaired ankle that is dodgy at the best of times. All I did was skate a block to the mailbox trying to hold some manuals and ollied up the curb...but it had been a long time. Won't say any of it felt solid but it's a start and I'm already thinking "I should get new wheels..."

Went on a solid ride with my wife today. Bombed a couple drawbridges and did a few gap tricks. Really got my wife stoked on skating lately after taking her with me on a trip. Skateboarding followed by some sex what more can I ask for  ;D

I did a very perfectly executed and caught tre flip in full view of the rollerderby girls padding up at the park last night.

Always been a fan of heelflips, I could do em a little in my teens but I just figured out where I need to have my feet and I've been getting them pretty consistently the last couple days so I'm stoked on that. Even been figuring out back heels and halfcab heels.

Frontside flopper on a steep bank, switch fs shuv on steep bank, floating a mean backside 180 like Pfanner, although it probably looks like turds but whatever.

I put a new board together last night and rode it to the mailbox doing the same thing; also little speed check slides and some shifty oliies. I had so much fun. Rolled the right ankle a year ago and it still feels weak, torn meniscus in the right knee has healed but am dealing with lower back issues and pain shooting down my left thigh into my knee now. I'm far from solid. But constant stretching and keeping everything moving seem to help.

This morning at a park. I watched three guys all about the same age skate together, all couldn’t have clinged to a different era of skating any harder if they tried

The first dude showed up all pads on a sword and skull reissue, then his buddy showed up on some Chris miller board, the last guy showed up on this twig of a board couldn’t have been more then 7.5 and atop it were the chunkiest Globes I’ve seen since the ct-iv

But they all were having a good time and even moved their stuff so I could skate the ledge.

At some park out of town so I didn’t know anyone and decided to skate the stairs with I don’t usually do and broke my board pretty much immediately, some local kid went to his car and give me a spare he had without asking for anything, it’s mice to know there are still good people in the world.

Set up a new deck I’ve had for 6 months with a shape I was sure I was going to hate. Ended up loving it and was able to pull off some stuff I couldn’t quite do on my last deck.

Ultimately, the combination of being able to land new stuff, not waste money and have a whole new shape I can ride was awesome. I’m sure there is some obscure French or Japanese term for that unique combination of pleasures haha

found myself at a doublesided curb and was doing back lips. i sang to myself '2 sided curb, 2 sided curb, i been back lipping at the kremlin w/ a 2 sided curb'.
saw a motorcycle cop so i skated away [city hall is his beat].
was at courthouse yesterday and couldn't back 5-0 for beans so i forced myself to do a bunch. there were younger kids there the other day and they fucked up my vibe. by myself i can concentrate a little better.
couldn't force myself to back lip the ledge, board went to smith and didn't grind or fell away but the 5-0s were good.
on the way home i seen a kid carrying a board i goes 'let's ollie the 5' and we bombed down and hopped a 5 into traffic. shit was ok.
