Repossessed to skate – Session 22

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 sessions – still dreaming about grinding the coping. Ramp wet with moisture from night’s cold weather. Took it easy. Session a little underwhelming. Fakies and kickturns without real power and with much restraint. Spent a bit of time waxing the grind boxes, rails , spine and slab of the bowl – a gift to the locals.

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.
