Repossessed to skate – Session 7

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.
