Winter outdoor skate 

Snow and ice. But a sunny day make me long for an outdoor visit to Higvalley skatepark.

I practice things I usually don’t like to do at all. Like ollies. Boring but maybe a good thing to learn. Maybe.

A little bit fun. As always I got obsessed with success.

It’s gonna be a long hot summer From now on

Yesterday¬īs progress was not quite stable yet. Had to jump off at too high speed. And that hurts. My ankle is not back to normal and the knee is not ready for stomping hard on the concrete. Injuries still making me realize I need to be¬†¬†extra¬†cautious.

But I got it again and this time I successfully got upp and over the bump….

Two waterfalls and a carve

I am over the moon.

I started the morning skate session feeling uninspired, tired and heavy and ended the session feeling great with a smile on my face.

 

Over the bump and a neat little kickturn.

Very good summer. Sunny every day, almost. So there are lots of time to go to the skatepark.

New gorgeous wheels.  Feels so smooth.

It is much more fun when I have more than one line to practice.

The kickturn after the bump a guess will open up evern more lines. Still not high enough but practice makes perfect.

Tremendous heat and tremendously fun.

Pretty empty as usual on a work day morning.
I could practice rolling in from the upper waterfall. Makes it possible to use the two connected¬† bowls through the pipe. I can roll down through the first bowl into the pipe and swirl around in the second bowl and then back. So the speed I get from the two waterfalls is¬†still to high for me. I can¬īt stop and carve in the deep first pool. Thers is no nice curve to easily carve backside and get the carving going. Have to take the round in the other bowl to lower my speed.
Then I got company and had to keep to¬†the one bowl. Back to what I can handleūüėā.
But now I tried getting up on the bump in the middle and it worked. Now I just have to roll down again and not jump off.
So maybe this summer will prove to be pushing me forward.

I did it

Happy days. The rain that was expected did not happen.  I had the whole park to myself.  So I could do exactly whatever I wanted.

A little ditch, bumps, trying to get up on the bump in the big bowl, mini, the upper bowl and then I tried to start from the second waterfall. Two waterfalls in a row.  The speed became really high by my standards. Luckily there is a long way to help speed out through the pipe. Now one around so I could do over and over again. So fun.
