Pretty bad yesterday... spent 20 minutes sweeping up the spot on the first dry day in two weeks.

Decided to session cab 1s to warm up, third one in and I rolled my ankle (same one I did pretty badly about 4 months back).

Never in a million years would I have expected to injure myself doing that trick!

That's two ankle rolls on this deck...time to retire it? Cursed maybe!

Eversince I stopped drinking about a year ago I never really experienced a "Bad Day" like I used to.
I used to go skate on the weekends completely hungover and slammed on the easiest maneuvers and most of the times I had to sweat out all the bad stuff from the night before to get my abilities back.
Now I have to warm up for about 5-10 minutes and I am all set.
feels like shitting backwards

I shouldn't be amazed, but it is crazy how much diet and sleep impact how much I can skate.

Doing shift work / long hours / little sleep / too much coffee and not much else really messed me up.

Also being stuck inactive for too long means it is harder to get into the mindset to get out and do something.

I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.

I always try and have some easy tricks on hand.....or something a bit different to take the edge off those shit days....

That's the sick thing about skating to me...there's always something on the table...you just have to find it.  Despite not having what you used to have....it gives you tons of opportunity to do something new. 

I've never fakie shuv'd up a curb....right there....just did it.

Take it to fakie nose manual, theyíre actually fair easy to catch and put down that way and then youíve got got shove fakie nose grinds, too
Not even kidding go try it mate

Edit cause I said fakie manual not nose manual
Just got up. I canít do anything to fakie manual
listen to cosmic psychos

My day was going badly.

I had the drags. I don't know how to explain it well.

Think of slow spots in you perception that  caused by no sleep mixed with horrendous audio of past violence.

I don't skate whenever I'm in a bad mood, I've learned that having a good positive attitude goes a long way especially if you're kinda sucking at basic stuff. 

If you're having a good day but your skills are not behaving well stick to what you have blindfolded and can do anytime.

 For me 180's both ways fs shuvs and bs shuvs tailslides and kickflips on lock but anything extra I might get one or two things kinda sketchy but I chalk it up to having a good attitude 

if you're not there in the moment and your mind's somewhere else such as old lady's pissing you off or something that's stressing you out[ you're going to slam/i]

i feel like the more i skate the more i suck

i keep losing tricks and losing tricks and now i cant even pop my board straight always so fucking toeside all my boards end up razortailing diagonal and i fucking hate it i hate feeling the ollie turn halfway because i'm too retarded to pop it right

i lost kickflips totally couple months ago I was learning to kf into stuff, kf into manual, kf into fs5050, kf crooks, and now i literally can't do one on flat even if you give me fucking 20 tries, and the ones I do land are so retarded my front arm whips all the way backwards across my back so far sometimes i touch my fucking back elbow i hate it

I totally lost my heelflips, can't even get remotely close anymore

my 180s are all underrotated and shitty

I tried to just skate switch/nollie to get my mind off of things and I was making some pretty good progress and now I just fucking dig the nose into the ground for a second instead of popping anything i hate it

I'm not even old I'm fucking 20 years old it's not like I'm losing joint mobility or anything

Every day I work all i want to do is fucking skate and then I get out there fucking suck so much I go home before i start acting like a retard and then wake up the next day do it all over again. Now I dread getting off because I know I'm gonna go skate and suck ass and get mad again. I don't understand why this happens isn't practice supposed to help? I have not changed my setup at all, the spots are all the same, but i am inexplicably 20x shitter than I was a couple months ago.

You sound extremely fatigued. Even if you're young you need time off the board and a good recovery period to get you sorted.
Also it's a good idea to have a physical outlet that isn't skating.

I was just talking about this with someone yesterday, but the bottom line is you just cannot skate all day every day, even at peak health.

Being slightly injured sometimes can help you rest up and heal and then it actually works better to skate after a week or so off.  Not so much after six months off with a major injury, but that is another story.

I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.

I think about how much longer I got to live.

Will I make it back to California? Will I ever get to japan? Should I just skip to the end and hang myself in the woods now.

Yoo stay with us. I think about this shit all the time too, even tonight, then I got a text from a good pal I havn't seen in forever and we were crackin' jokes like old times. I didn't realise how much I missed certain people. It made my night , I was on zero right before it. Moral of the story, cool things happen even if you're at your worst. Or hit someone up and make their day.

Skating is mercurial for me.

If I slam hard quick, Iíll call it or grab the cruiser and leave the slaps and pops behind.

Most of the time I skate are bad days. I rarely have good days. But on bad dad I try to learn something new. Like the last time I had a really bad day I learned 5-0s. Today I couldnít do shit and slammed really hard ollying over some traffic cones, so I learned backside 50-50s after only like four tries and then had them kind of locked in.

I know these are super basic to most of you but, these are tricks I would try a few times and give up on. Since I skated so inconsistently over the past 25+ years I just didnít learn a lot. So Iím pretty psyched that I can still learn them and know what they feel like, even if theyíre on super low ledges.

Barely slept last night, so I went to the spot to do something and not fall asleep during the day. That was a baaad session but I stopped quick and just chilled and filmed.

My "Bad Days" are usually after skating excessively, just super fucking heavy-footed, my flick feels like lifting a cinderblock that then hits the nose of my board

I'm pretty fresh back at skating after a long hiatus, so I'm not having too many bad days right now, but my bad skating days are generally due to being too deep in my head, being unable to focus, and getting angry. I might even be landing stuff but my heads just not in it. It's not really happening much lately, but when it does I just try to bounce outta the spot because I'm really trying to not get hurt due to a lack of focus. Really, I'm just happy to be skating with ease because 12 months ago I didn't think I'd ever be skating again, period. gotta keep that PMA
