skated a curb for 45 minutes, failed to kickflip successfully and then pulled a muscle in my shoulder. i think i'm getting old.

I pull something fairly regularly these days, seems to be a part of skating in your 30s and beyond no matter your warmup or diet etc.

I skated again today despite yesterday's slam.

Landed primo two days running, varial flip this time. Primo slams for me are like buses, none for ages then they all come at once.

My neck hates me even more now.

I drink 2L of water over a 2 hour session, so got that covered.

Lots of waxing. More waxing. Even more waxing. Telling kids they can't skate unless they wax the areas of the curb they're skating.

I'm skating the little 3 foot quarter when half a dozen kids arrive. None have boards. They start asking to use everybody's board. "Just one trick, just one trick!"
 They start doing this to one guy who's leaving, he says something to them, and they leave him and run right at ME, all yelling at once.
  "Tony Hawk! Let me get a pic! Tony Hawk!" What? Dude told them I was the birdman, and they believed him? I do wear knee pads, but I'm bald, my 180s are bad, and I have a beard. It ain't me you're looking for, babe.
  They were so disappointed though. One kid actually stomped his foot and exclaimed, "this sucks!" I should have just signed my board and given it to them. Best of luck <3 Tony.

we've had a great start to the week with some fall-like temperatures here in the midwest. monday was rainy so yesterday was perfect.
met a friend at a park we haven't skated in awhile at 6pm, about 70-72 degrees. my dumb ass thought I wouldn't sweat so much with this nice weather - jokes on me. shirt was drenched and I was wiping my sweaty face by 6:30.
gotta love the one dude at the park wearing a beanie while I can see his shirt is obviously completely sweat soaked. lol.
getting more comfy with frontside reverts and spinning my body in different directions.
great sesh with the homie. made me realize I need to go out and skate on weekdays more often, I love this shit.

skated a spot/curb in a pretty populated area (midwest so the weather is nice rn), ran into a dude who i hadn't seen in a while, landed a couple new tricks which was tight (fakie ollie->sw50-> fakie front180 out, front180 sw50 fakie front180 out).

tried to get buck and ollie this grass gap but fucked myself up lol, just some blood but some random girls offered me a (my little pony) bandaid from their car and washed the wound out.

I went to my old stomping grounds since the parking lot is clear on Sundays now. My curb is gone now since they turned part of the sidewalk into a handicap ramp. Anyways, I havenít skated in a couple of weeks and since the sunís going down earlier, it cools off just in time for me to skate after work on Sunday. I skated the wheelchair bank, got a 180, front shuv, and kickflip. Skated the curb cut and did a little flatground for half an hour. Still pretty rusty, but hopefully Iíll get a couple of seshes in this week since I have the early shift.

i ate shit yesterday doing a tailslide on the quarter pipe at my local park. itís been humid/hot so the coping sticks really bad when the weather is like that, i dug in with all my weight forward & got spit onto the flat bottom with my elbow straight into my ribs and landing with all the impact onto my right knee. knocked the wind out of me so i had to pace around for a second and immediately realized upon doing so that i had chicken winged my leg when my knee hit & strained my groin really bad. been sitting all day & last night icing it & taking epsom salt baths. moral of the story, always stretch before you skate & maybe check the coping before you just try to crank a slide/grind on it. maybe wax your tail/truck. the first 2 i did slid a little but, all my weight was in the back while pushing the board forward, didnít really think about it when i went full speed standing straight up & got catapulted.

There was a big party going on at my local so I decided to visit a skatepark I haven't been to in ages, turns out it's reformed, 10/10 cement, 10/10 sloped rail and 2 tiny manny pads.
There are long and slightly curved benches but I don't know what's up with those, I ignored how dry it looked and tried to crook it and part of it chipped off, maybe it's actually just there for people to sit on I don't know.
Half of the place is still closed but I think it's just gonna be a big and very shallow bowl, either way I'll be going back there just for that sloped rail.

Yesterday I went out to the local Iíve been going to for almost 10 years, rolled around and kept it easy. Iím 26 and have had a knee surgery so it took a while to feel warmed up but damn, it felt so good. Occasionally Iíll tweak my knee and have to put the board down for a month or two  but Iíve been lucky recently, legs are feeling stronger, pops getting higher again, Learning new technical tricks and feeling progress on all fronts. felt like itís been too long since Iíve had this energy

Hadnít skated in about a year due to herniated discs in my lower back.

Landed a kickflip first try on flat then followed up by throwing my back out again ollieing up a curb.

Fuck this shit, Iím retiring. I can do 5 days a week of intense BJJ and everythingís fine, Iím more flexible and stronger than ever, yet I fuck myself up ollieing up a curb without even falling.

Had a hell of a run and lots of fun but my back canít take it anymore and Iím over it.

RIP my skate career. 1999-2022.

Skated some flat in my garage last night. It was hard because we only have one overhead light right in the middle of the ceiling and it casts shadows over your board when you roll a certain way.

It was also fun in a way because you have to just trust that you're going to land on the board after blindly doing a trick.

It reminded me of going out night skating with my friends when I was a kid. Miss those days so much. :'(

Sorry to hear about your back.

At its worst, one time I threw out my back unplugging a vacuum cleaner when I was working as a housekeeper in an old folks home in 2000-2001. I was laid out on the carpet face down for a bit until the pain stopped being so intense and absolutely no one came to my aid.

Hope one day your back decides to stop being a jerk.

I take everything I said back. The board hit me in the nuts for the first time ever today, because i was wearing these shits.

Thanks friend.

Back pain has been a staple of mine since Iím 18 (iím almost 34 now). Iíd be fine for a few years and then boom, it would start again for a couple weeks. Itís been much worse in the last 3 years where it happens every year.

Your vaccuum story is exactly what happened to me last year, bent over to plug in my PS4 controller and the damn thing just gave out. Fell forward and stayed on my living room floor for half an hour in crazy pain before I could crawl to my couch. I was messed up bad for 3 months, had to walk with a cane and everything. That was by far the worst pain Iíve ever been in, so bad I thought I was going to throw up.

This time isnít so bad since BJJ has kept me in really good shape, but Iím just bummed it happened again.

Getting old sucks.

I've dealt with back issues on and off for the last 12 years, specifically with my L3-L4. It was part of the reason I decided to start doing weight training and jump roping. My chiropractor recommended it for years but I just started getting serious about it back in June. I do a lot of exercises that target my core and it has made a huge difference. Went to one of the local parks with my nephew on Tuesday evening and I was pleasantly surprised by how well I skated. My back didn't hurt like it used to and I had significantly more stamina than I did the last time I skated, which was a few months back. I'm only 35, but I plan on skating for as long as my body physically lets me. Watching guys like Reynolds, AVE, and Mariano has definitely motivated me to keep it going. That and I just genuinely love skateboarding. Even when I reach the point where I can't physically skate, I don't think I'll ever stop keeping up with it.

Skated a miniramp the other day. Did a fakie smith that hung up. Tried to bail, but my front foot stuck to the board so I ended up falling straight to the bottom.  Hit down so hard that I thought I shit my pants.  That ended the session right there

Had my first "proper" session in almost three weeks due to lung surgery. I had a few manny only sessions earlier this week but today I got to do my full routine and was stoked to get all my tricks quickly, including a few lines. Plus the manny only sessions helped me getting better at nose, fakie and switch mannies, which is a plus.

I feel like -> It's kinda hard to imagine, like Kanye West coming back from his fatal accident to beatmakin' and rappin' (The Game, Start From Scratch)
why come?

Had a fun 90-minute session on my 2.5x12' garage mini yesterday. Planning to repeat that today. Quit the booze a week ago so no hangovers are helping me skate longer. Sleep adjustment from not being loaded nearly every night is still a bitch though. Overall, working from home this week kinda rules.

Skated a kinked curb, really fun but hard. Got a boardslide up it (flat, kink, flat, height of ledge on top) tried to get my friend to film a rolling long lens angle of it, got absolutely worked. Took 3 slams, tweaked my ankle, bounced off my knee on the ledge, and finally came down straight on my tailbone on the kink. Miraculously I was okay and kept trying, almost got a feeble up it too. Friend nose slid it like a little hubba, that was rad.
