    Default 3 months and lost

    So I've been skating for about 3 months. I'm pretty terrible though. I can ollie and can heelflip while not moving. I land maybe one out of every 20 pop-shuv-its. Kickflips just don't work with me lol. I can ollie down 4 and 5 stairs though. I can also 18o down three stairs. All i can do on a quarter pipe is rock to fakie. I love skating but I feel lost. I'm not getting any better. Should I just try learning different things or what? How do you stay motivated?

    well you can heelflip thats something. practice doing them while moving slowly then work your way up. then learn other tricks like varial heel, inward heel, BS/FS heel or maybe get kickflips

    Sounds like your on a plateau, Just keep skating and one day things will just pop.

    That will be a very good day.
