Yesterday at the outdoor mini ramp I suddenly managed to do kickturns. Today we were indoors. And I kept on doing kickturns in the mini.  So cool and fun. I can keep on going on forever. That’s a very cool feeling.
Well what’s next?
Front side.
And then drop in.

I did it

Today I took yet another step forward. Riding in the small waterfall was not as fun as usual. But then I tried my waterfall number two. And I did it. Was nothing really. So I am a yellow-belly.
This was fun. It is much easier to skate with others now that I at least can start from the first part of the waterfall in that pool.
I feel great.

Happy happy

Progress. I could do two rounds in the pool. Actually three rounds but the third was not starting from up on the flat. So now I can come back up on the flat and turn back and do one more round.

To me this is success.  Always makes you feel better.  Tried the other waterfall but I still don’t have the courage.
We are almost the same gang every day. Not trespassing on each others spot. I like that.
Been skating whet the park is crowded and some guys make you feel uncomfortable.  I sincerely thought that commenting someone else was a no no. But apparently not.  This is a benchmarking sport 🙂 .  Guess the fact that  I am a middle aged female skater lacking in skills is part of it.  It is impossible to skate if you feel awkward. So now I just sit and watch when we are there late evenings. Pity.
Bumps are funny. I try all kinds of ways though the bumps.
Seems I will be able to skate tomorrow too. All of a sudden we have a great summer again.
