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.
The ramp was in good condition and only required a slight squeegee to clear water from the the flat area of the ramp. My new setup with Bones Reds Bearing and Spitfire wheel is super smooth and super fast. Effortless fakies, kick turns and transfers over the roll-in to the other side of the ramp. High backside kick turn with a partial backside grind on the coping. Nice feeling. Still can’t commit to the drop-in. Yet another drop-in-dilemma, but less anxious. Just relaxed and enjoyed skating the ramp with a newfound energy and confidence.

A gift from my family for my birthday. A new skateboard deck by Welcome, featuring the sage-like Fate Owl on a non-popsicle board shape. Nice.
