    I have set my sights on a nollie kickflip, and i'm close to landing! I did that thing where you accidentally forward flip it, then that thing where you step off with back foot and it landed. Gained some good confidence with the trick that way but i'm hoping to land with both feet soon and really make it official. It's hard to describe, like a nollie no comply kickflip I guess? I dunno it's weird but i'm tryin to get past it and move onto the next thing. It's been frickin crazy, one trick after the next, just been goin hard.

    One thing that kinda concerns me is I don't have anywhere to practice rail skating, you know? Like I have no flatbar at the local park, or in my posession - there's ledges but it's not the same and they're a bit tough for certain things at the moment. I really wish I had a flatbar to take to this parking lot by my house and work on. Does anyone know of any adjustable square shaped flatbar rails that are real lightweight? Less than 20-30 pounds?

    nice. Was that one trick you did with the two hands a Texas plant? I was trying something similar the other day, but I'm very bad at hand/footplant terminology. plus I don't even know if I was doing it right lol.



    I also got a clip the other day. The dramatic editing is sort of a joke at the expense of the guy in the green shirt, who's a bit of a character in our town. I'm the white shirt guy. The black shirt guy edited it.

    Im bad at everything these days, but I've always been terrible at tranny because I never had the option of skating it(very much) growing up. I got a fs slash on a five feet quarter pipe the other day and I'm pretty happy about that. Now I just need to get it every try.

    In other news, I am stoked to see Andrew Reynold's epicly later'd.

    yeah was a very shoddy texas plant, should ideally be jumping onto it as opposed to letting it flop into the ramp but the last time i tried that i ended up nosediving the floor. lots of fun shit like that to do once you start chucking your hands on the board or the coping. good shit btw that sweeper transfer thing was dope.

    oh for sure, the only thing I was let down by was how short it was...easily could have been an hour or more episode. Didn't go into element or too deep into drugs/alcohol etc weird seeing him get emotional talking about sleeping by the beach then he's all "waddup tree" haaha his dogs are eating better than I do. I wasn't aware that was how he left Toy Machine either or the tension between him and JT, interesting stuff fr. Reynolds is out this week which should be equally as cool

    Snapped my board so i got another shop deck. This one has a simpler design and deeper concave which works out perfectly.

    Also, youd think id be able to land nollie heels more often considering ive been trying to get them down for about a fucking year now. Ive landed some, but im nowhere near being consistent. Ive messed around with so many foot positionings, timings, and even deck shapes/sizes youd think id be able to have them down. Its depressing, but im not giving up

    dhjs nothing, was ran by a mate, sank his student loan into it, sold a bunch of boards, but he kinda went full hippy and it put people off buying from him afterwards, so it just faded away

    Shame cause they were nice decks, basically jart decks if I remember rightly.

    Wait did shit get deleted or was this thread actually dead since October of last year?

    Anyway, have been skating a lot, still don't have health insurance until end of July. I got 50-50 into front boards on a bank to ledge at the park, tried to nollie into it and got wrecked. Broke my finger, thankfully nothing worse, good reminder to be careful until I'm insured.

    Just did a bunch of new additions at my local DIY, and it's pretty much an entirely new park now. I'm extremely proud to be involved with it, and it skates like a dream.

    The smaller quarters are perfect. The transition is mellow, but it's not just a bank with coping.


    The big bank though came out pretty gnarly. A few folks have already gotten worked on it, myself included.

    hyped to go pick up some new trucks tomorrow, been putting it off for ages as i really love having the groove in the back truck that makes it super easy to lock in on tranny but that shit isn't worth axle nuts coming off every other session, mounting holes are all fucked up, back kingpin is fucked as it snapped so i had to put a new one in and it never really mounted properly so its just wobbling around causing hectic wheelbite/makes going fakie hard not to mention a crack running through the truck. had really hoped to skate em until they snapped but i know new trucks will improve my skating a shit ton.



    gonna have to hit some heavy fuckin slappies to get down to that point again
