Daily Skate 02 Nov 2022

Excellent weather today. Warm sun without the August humidity. Leafy air dry with the receding sun.

For a while, I’ve had trouble getting to the skatepark in the afternoon or any time after sunrise. Partly, I’m an introvert, but I realized today the most obvious hindrance was my lack of confidence.

Feeling good about what I can do and what I want to learn has made it easier, but to echo something I’ll say throughout this blog, I’m old enough that I just don’t care what others might think. I know where I’m at, what I’m doing, and how far I’ve already come.

Who cares if bro is landing nollie heelflips in a quarter pipe while I’m still trying to get comfortable with frontside kick turns on a bank? I know having fun has nothing to do with anybody else, so I rock it. Or try to, anyway.

Of course, it also helps that I’ve met a lot of cool people at the skatepark so far.

In the end, I’m happy to find time every once in a while to skate before winter comes and skating becomes that much harder to find a place for.
