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.
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.
