Daily Skate 19 Aug 2022

Mellow morning today.

The park was quiet, the road was relatively calm, and there wasn’t a cloud in the sky for the sun to illuminate.

There was a moment of !!! when I slid my way into the park’s concrete bowl. I did a loop or two regular footed, but it seems so tall, so insurmountable!

While I had a thought to start riding high on the transition walls this summer/year, it may have to become a goal for next year. If I’m honest with myself, I’m still gaining balance and flow while riding the bumps, humps and transition walls—today, I had an almost catastrophic wobble while carving a wall (okay, not catastrophic, but you know that feeling of “Oh, no. I’m gonna fall”).

I have the pads I need, though. So, I’m thinking with a goal of riding those high-up spots next year I can start learning how to fall before ever approaching them, and still spend time getting super comfortable on my board.

We’ll just have to see how it goes!
