This winter has been terrible, so much rain.
This garage has saved me.

Trying to learn these.  I think I grinded about 2 inches.  Counting it!




Man I want those too... I can do fake frontside 50 50s but the alley oop component makes no sense to me.

Speaking of 2" grinds.... Managed to get 2" inches of nose grind on pool coping the other day... excuse the freeze frame grab....

Yah me too....those curbs look like so much fun.

I love skating outside for sure but there's something to be said about a parking garage session by yourself....

I'm 35 this trick is several years old.  Probably one of the best of ever done.

Here's a quick little montage from last year I made for my blog, age 42. I didn't film all that much and suck but at least I've still got the basics.

I'd be padded up too if I was riding that!
Fuck yeah to JSoy, you've even got some young buck ledge tricks on lock too!
P.s. I love nollie front tails nearly as much as I love the backside version (and despite the stigma attached to nollie-ing into these types of tricks)

I was in Vancouver for the winter and meant to go to that park, but was told that you had to wear helmets & it would cost $500.00 a session.

I think you can rent the whole place out for $150......I'm not really proud that I skate there....

One more from Venice....I argued with all my old friends why I wanted to skate the courthouse and didn't care about Venice but it was hard to resist.....it was the bucket hat that gave me the edge.....

ugh, Venice beach park looks so fun. I'm headed to LA at the end of the month for work and am sooooo tempted to pack my board...

super jealous you can do laybacks.  :o    I tried to learn that trick for hours way back when and I could never seem to drop back in....I think I did one out of 25 000 tries!
Anyways I'm still in "just cruising" mode. That mini-ramp contest at woodward is really making me itch for a mini sesh though!!

Hope you get one soon, mon ami.

And hell yeah, J. Ripping as always, stoked to see a legit transition trick from you.

I learned the layback in my 30's.....i more or less use the coping like a handicap rail....5-0's are scary.....I go to tail and my hand is all wrong but all the dudes that would call me out can barely skate now.....Obviously the hard thing is getting back up....

You're suppose to grind it out and angle back so your board catches up to your body, but I keep it tight, go to tail and hope I can hold it together going in.

Venice looks rad but it's hairy, slippery and there's tons of people all cheering the little fly out kid.... Next time I'd go early.....

I'm back out of my New England Hiatus of skipping months at a time of skating. About to try Thunders. Haven't rode them since I was a kid. Worst part about getting old is warm up time. Takes me way longer. Need to start stretching all the time.

Stoked to see this thread going strong and so much shredding still for the older heads.

Been keeping busy with work and raising 16 month old twins which is insane regardless but nowadays I'm getting to skate about once every week and a half to two weeks and I'm fine with that.

Last time I skated I finally learned how to backside tailslide on transition, and let me tell you that shit felt goooooood.
Granted it was only a 4 foot high cement QP that has metal "noping" but you can lock in grinds and slides on it really good.
I got sick of seeing everyone (seems like nearly everyone these days can do them pretty easily around here) being able to do them and why the fuck did I not learn these in my 20's or 30's??

Anyway this trick was surprisingly easier than I had thought it would be, waaaaay easier than backside Smiths which I can barely get into and barely grind, and after the first make I just kept trying it and trying it and doing more of them (I always said if I could do this trick I would do it all fucking day every chance I got) and everything about this trick from the way it looks, feels and sounds is something I can't believe it took me over 30 years to finally experience.

BTW I'm 47 but that shit made me feel 19.
I'm gonna go skate a mini ramp tonight with real coping and if I'm feeling it I'm gonna see if I can get into a couple, maybe it'll work out maybe not, I'll let you guys know how it goes.

A lot of good stuff in this thread! Stoked on that. You guys rule.

I'm 35 and haven't skated as much as I wanted lately as I sprained my foot 4 times during the last year and a half. Sprained it again last Saturday. Seems like the ligaments in my feet are just really weak after all these years.

I'll see if I can make a mini edit of semi-recent footage sometime soon.

Oh shit dude I would if I could but I skate with Jef Hartsel all the time and he can do that shit soooo good!!
One hand down, other hand on nose and strrrretching that shit out for distance too, makes it look so cool but then everything Hartsel does looks cool. Also he's the only dude we session with that's older than me so he's a huge inspiration because he's killing it just as hard as he ever did when he was pro, maybe even more so now!

I and I style......

The Duane peters bs tail is arguably harder than the regular back tail.....I'm working on the regs back tail...but when I do them it's all shoe....

Harts is Asian.....possibly on some okinanwan shit which means he ages even slower.....
