Stuck in the bottom

This weekend the skatepark was too crowded again. I found myself feeling a little bit uneasy and uncomfortable. They ought to give us “skaters” that can´t drop an hour of our own. There is that part of skateboarding that feels like some kind of benchmarking. And it is not at all that easy to just play around in the bottom. Better when the park is empty. So no miniramp! Just kicking in the bottom of the vert.
The winter has taken a break so I have to start running again. And maybe go to gym.
No photo today. Cause I am disappointed somehow.

Still happy

Well, still happy…Haven´t been to the coldstore since last Saturday. Just practicing manuals in the hallway! Now, it will be interesting to see if I really got it a little last time. Got to have the miniramp to myself.
Skateboard has that extra part of suddenly mastering something “impossible”. Quite nice actually.

The flapping arms! Looking weird and unrelaxed. Not so cool maybe but I will work on the style too 😀

Progress

Well at last some progress! The coldstore was for once almost empty. I started the evening taking photos and did not intend to skate. But with an empty hall I had to get my gear and have a go. I was lured into the miniramp and it felt very awkward…to steep at once. Scary. Had the vertramp to myself for a while and that made me braver. So back to the mini and wow, all of a sudden I could do it. Push up some speed. Kind of funny that my arms just had to flap! I have seen that many a time while watching others that aren’t that relaxed and confident. But that seems to be totally involuntarily…frysen.
Well this is really what makes this a perfect way to rehab yourself after a serious illness or whatever dull thing you have been through. It gives you this ridiculously satisfying feeling of getting better and acheiving your goal! But it also gives you that cool feeling when something suddenly snaps into place. You can´t say what it was you actually did, that was different, but somehow it worked.
Yupp, I like it and it gives me the feeling of getting back into business again. Took me some time to realise that I needed som kind of physical ( well that I realised) and mental rehab.
Well this reminds me most of my 6 o´clock Friday evenings at Gympalatset, a real workout session. Can´t do that nowadays!
Finally it is just a cool thing to do for whatever reason and at whatever age and regardless of gender!
