Skated some flat in my garage yesterday. Had alot of fun. Working on switch fs 360 and switch bs flip. Got really close on both but ultimately just called it a day after getting pitched a few times. Hoping I'll land one of them next session.

Skated Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at a plaza that was in a "green zone" for the full week before. Watched fencing come down. Felt good that the city gets to breathe again. Let's hope it stays safe/that way.

Last session outside was months ago, then Winter began..My local indoor is my 8' x 10' backroom, But two days ago I made a new game..it goes heelflip,fakie kick flip, then 3-flip in a row. I have to push myself off the walls to go back in forth so its a fun challenge..a fun challenge that is self rewarded by a joint and a beer. Hope you guys in warm climates are getting after it.

Got to skate with two of my buddies this past Sunday. We were just gonna hit a curb, but then it started raining so we skated around in some parking garages downtown. One of my friends is typically a bowl/park guy, so we were all stoked when he landed a ledge trick that he battled for awhile.

Its in the 50s and windy lately in Socal. I tried to get warm for the majority of the 2 hour session today.  Started out dry-cold, got sweaty and warm for 20 minutes, then immediately got wet-cold. 

Also started trying to get the nerves up to learn switch front blunts on small ledges.  This and the weather made me feel super soft

16 day ago, before I fell off curb while running and thrashed my ankle,

was super tired and didn't have much in me because I had walked 3 miles then ran 4.5 and it was an overcast day. went to the secret diy spot and was the only person there so I put Wu Chronicles and dodged puddles. the ocean was pretty loud because of the king tides and I like that noise a lot. Landed a bunch of board slides, no complies, and shuvit variations. Couple short and tall tail slides. I left exhausted and figured I shouldn't skate for a few days to avoid getting hurt, planning to go back over the weekend to practice popping over the bump/tortoise shells. I get hurt fucking running. fun session
stay high, lay low

Skated a pretty crusty ditch spot called little surf with my good homie, it was all pretty heckride. I ate shit ollieing into one of the steep banks of the ditch and got chewed up. It started drizzling and but I was able to get that Ollie into the bank a few tries later and a couple other tricks. My buddy locked in a long ass feeble to fakie on some of the parking blocks that were there perched on the banks. The rain got to serious and we ducked back out and looked for a covered spot. The rain stopped and it dried up enough for us to have a fun slappy sesh on my parking block. Overall 10/10 sesh
Please keep kooking me for talking shit about blading on a SKATEBOARDING message board

Dry cold day in Canadas west coast, skated some flat on a smooth new road recently completed in the outskirts of the rural Rez I live by. Neighbour walks by and asks if I’ve bombed the most insane switchback road in town... shoulda said yes and got mad bad boy rep in the neighbourhood?

Skated this underground parking lot spot under a movie theater that's been closed down since pre-covid days. Skated there after work today and had a primarily mellow flatground sesh for about 45 minutes. Based on how tired I felt and how my first goes at 5050ing the ledge went, I knew it was a day to take it easy and stick to some flatground. Recently recovered from a rolled ankle and stoked to be back on the board.

Went out last Saturday since the streets were dry and the sun was out (rare in January where I'm from) and skated a two up two down at my local farmer's market square. Top stair had a lil wax but is rough cement, I'm planning on transforming that puppy with lacquer soon.

I live downtown and no matter where I'm skating, I make a point to reroute and wallride nollie (whatever it's called) over this little spicket right before I get home. It's a block from my apartment and a perfect way to end a session! Here's a photo I took when scouting for spots this summer after I moved in. I love this little guy :)

The exact geographical location of skateboarding's core is directly under the DC logo at the Rob Dyrdek Plaza in Kettering Ohio.

Took my six year old son to the local school, where I have a parking block and a couple curbs waxed up. Re-learned how to nollie lipslide the parking block. Also after a few months of doing bs slappies on small curbs, I discovered I can do them on a full sized curb. Finished with a bunch of long 50-50s 180 out. Fun!

Was at a sam's club parking lot a few days ago and it's closed permanently.

So there's a few good slappy curbs was hitting them up heard then saw some randoms skating the other side of the parking lot they brought their boxes and ramps full on session likes demo.

Honestly I never in my life would I have seen this especially in my area.

 One because this place sucks

Two the scene here is like a watered down supreme clique

Three my neighborhood is hood as fuck NO ONE SKATES here unless it's longboarding.

It was a good session slammed a few times as they had a stupid box that was over waxed it wasn't safe at all.

Cold winter night.  Make fire by moonlight.  Howl with wolf.  Wolf family.  My family.

Make a tender moment- sweat under and freeze your eyelids shut.

Police make contact.  I warrior.  They know, I know.  Sign says “no skateboarding”.  Police say they
don’t care.  I hear howling breath under people breath.

Make ancestors give strength to 5-0 on a little step.  Gods not friendly and sleeping.  Fear grip and hold “just how good is my health insurance?”  “Why am I such a pussy?”

Play with dead bird carcass and kiss its rancid wings.

I took my cruiser board out to just go around my neighborhood, fucked around on some things along the way. Stopped at a hill to a busy street where there's a 2 stair ledge thing towards the top I've always eyed but it has a gnarly crack before it, thought I could get over it easier with cruiser wheels. Came close but didn't land it. Also was kinda tough to time it with the light since I wanted to cross the street at the bottom without stopping.

 Two other dudes were skating closer to the top of the hill and went to a ledge spot I hit the night before, they didn't have masks so I didn't say what up or anything but nodded at them.

For ten minutes and by myself, I skated a ridiculously dusty, filthy parking garage that's full of rocks and melted snow and people coming in and out and a lingering security guard. Not only was my griptape full of dust, but I fell and my jacket and pants got dust on them.

But on the plus side, I came close to learning wallride 180s.

Went to my winterspot. The only place I now with a roof over it. Super crusty, with those small cobblestones every 4 meters or so. I duct taped the whole place ( arround 50 meters of tape ) to smoothen out the cobblestones a bit.
I got two lill manual pads there and a wooden bank "ledge" i can use for slides.
Overall it's a pain in the ass to skate there but winter is hitting hard here. So it's the only dry place in town.
Somehow it's frustrating. But on the other hand it's also the only way to keep me sane with all of the covid madness right now. I always skate alone there because no one wants to skate that spot. Cops are also a problem there, they kicked me out on friday. So I came back on saturday to slip out on a half cap noseslide and fucking up my shoulder. Went to MRT on Monday and it seems like i need operation now.. so overall a great session..

Cycled 30/40 minutes to a skatepark outside the city, upon arrival I could only see little kids with scooters and families on top of the ramps.

Moved to a different skatepark, and 10 minutes into the session, got a sharkbite on the instep of my foot.

Smoked 2 joints and painfully cycled back home.

Life is beautiful.

Skated my local for a couple of hours on Saturday. I'm in the process of relearning kickflips and tailslides, but I try to limit how many kickflips I do so I don't get frustrated (finally figured out what to do by the end of the evening). Did my usual stuff and one of my friends brought his girlfriend and she was learning to skate on his board. He and I get to trying a noseslide on the 2-stair Euro hubba and I'm not even getting close, but I also just need to muster up the courage to try and fall a few times. After they left I practiced slappy noseslides and popped into some tailslides on the bottom stair in the street section before I left. Overall, not a bad day.

getting kicked out by two security guys at the newest spot before even putting down all four wheels, going to a park that's packed with kids and parents without any masks during peak covid and mandatory ffp2 mask in stores and parking lots, ending up skating a dry patch of asphalt next to a construction site. get three shinners on the same spot and be fed up and go home.

I tend to do 2/3 1 hour sessions during the week, mainly in my lunchbreak and a full day during the weekend.

Skated a tiny park couple towns over. Tried to evade all the weekend scooter kids. Despite the pandemic, there seems to be more than ever, especially with their ignorant parents... but the park was covered in mud and dirt from.. you guessed it, scooter kids. Managed to land a heelfip off the kicker and my friend caught the still on his phone:

https://i.imgur.com/rpcmVWx.jpg

Then we went back to the local after about an hour to sesh the ledge... my mate relearned impossible 50-50s and front tails on it, so all round a good couple hours.
