I got to skate, late tonight

At the best of times, it’s a challenge to find time to skate. It’s either under the cover of darkness, first thing in the morning or late at night. This time it was late at night. Yes!

I got to skate yesterday

I got to skate for about one hour, yesterday. In full daylight, and everything. I worked on the slappy-inspired crooked grind, where I slightly lift the front truck and then place it on the edge of the small ledge.

The board is particularly unique, with the bottom graphic featuring a photo of the famous and extremely colourful Choi Hung Estate in Kowloon. Awesome! Cut to present day 2018.

A different way of looking at things

A different way of looking at things. Günes Özdogan spot outside the Green Chemical Futures building at Monash Uni in Clayton. Lots of concrete hexagon-shaped stools in courtyard, too. Cool.

Learning a nose thing – Day 6

It goes: “I’m not getting it done, but I’m having fun.” It’s a song about having fun and persistence, even when things aren’t quite going your way. Some might call them joyful strains. #day6 #learningthroughplay #learningspaces #practiseinpublic #skateboarding A video posted by Repurposed Ruin (@repurposed_ruin) on Aug 27, 2016 at 2:19am PDT
