Repossessed to skate – Session 20

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 mini-ramp in hope to repeat and improve on previous session. Still sore from slam. Session a little underwhelming. Fakies and kickturns without real power and confidence.

Session description

Strong session on the mini-ramp. Built some great momentum with combination of fakies and kickturns (approach in the transition on an angle) just below the coping. I thought I was almost going to make a backside grind on the spine. Unfortunately, my rear truck hung up on coping during fakie and slammed heavily injuring my right knee. That kind of ended the session.

Session description

I skated the mini-ramp and pumped strongly for fakies and backside kickturns just below the coping. The front and rear trucks are just about to clip the coping on my fakies. Holding back after last week’s heavy slam and week of walking in discomfort. I really need to blast the transition and grind the coping. That’s what success looks like to me right now.

I need to be up here on the coping, but instead I’m down on the transition.

Session description

Once the sun had risen, I skated the mini-ramp and pumped strongly for fakies and backside kickturns just below the coping. The front and rear trucks are just about to clip the coping on my fakies. Slammed pretty hard a number of times, injuring my knee with a sideways slam on the transition. Ouch.

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.
