Repossessed to skate – Session 24

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 mini-ramp with a strong focus on grinding the coping. Unfortunately, I didn’t quite reach it frontside or backside, maybe 20 cm short of the coping.  Need to keep on building momentum to reach the coping from powerful kickturns on the transition. In doing this I slammed heavily, banging the side of my left knee. Ouch. Will be sore for a few days.

  1. Whoa. Much respect. I find it hard enough to make time to get to the gym, but this is some commitment.

    I’d love to try parkour, but that is a mere dream.

    1. Try Parkour? Why not! You don’t need any equipment! You just need need to practice moving through an area in the most efficient way. Sure, there are some sassy vaults and flips but you can slowly build up to them. Start simple, learn the essentials and then continue to build on them, adding variation and additional sass as you go. Let me know how you go! I know you can do it.
