Repossessed to skate – Session 15

Repossessed to skate is the name I’ve given my activity of learning and practising how to skate (again), specifically in the context of ongoing sessions at local skateparks. I’m relearning how to skate so I can show my kids how to skate.

Repossessed to skate is about having fun, learning new-old tricks that interest me and persevering.

Session description

Returned to the flatland and skated the car park of the local light-industrial estate, building endurance by pushing long and hard, practising ollie exercises over the lines of car positions and slash-grinding the exposed concrete edges. Also practised the shoves for the shove-it and managed to shove them all cleanly 180°, but didn’t commit to the landing. Little by little.

Session description

For the second day in a row, I skated the mini-ramp, pumped strongly for fakies and backside kickturns just below the coping. Even with the strong pumps, I just can’t make it above the coping. Need stronger pumps or maybe even a drop in!

Early morning. Waiting for the sun to rise so I can hit the mini-ramp.

Once again, I returned to the flatland and skated the car park of the local light-industrial estate, building endurance by pushing long and hard, practising ollie exercises over the lines of car positions and grinding the exposed concrete edges.

Practised shove-its and fell hard a couple of times. The hardest part for me right now is jumping high enough and pushing the board around cleanly 180°.

Once again, I returned to the flatland and skated the car park of the local light-industrial estate, building endurance by pushing long and hard, practising ollie exercises over the lines of car positions, 180 cess slides at speed and grinding the exposed concrete edges.

Wearing the new pro-tec protective gear has given me the confidence to attempt tricks and alternate skating styles (without the fear of getting hurt too much).

Once again, returned to the flatland and skated the car park of the local light-industrial estate, practising ollie exercises over the lines of car positions, 180 cess slides at speed and grinding the exposed concreted edges. Almost landed a half-hearted shove-it (without the pop), next time I’ll commit to the landing.

The new chocolate – hot sauce setup is still in good condition. I haven’t been attempting any tail or nose tricks.

Returned to the flatland and skated the car park of the local light-industrial estate, practising ollie exercises over the lines of car positions, 180 cess slides at speed and grinding the concrete edge – a guttural sounding lawn trimmer.

My exploration of how we learn and how we design and develop stuff that helps us learn.
