Repossessed to skate – Session 1

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

  • Generally skated around the skatepark, becoming more comfortable on the board, grinding edges and whipping out 180 cess slides on flatland.
  • In the transition, pumped strongly for fakies and frontside kickturns below the coping.
