    I'm REALLY close to 360 flips... It either goes the whole 360 but the board is upside down or it goes 270 but gets the whole flip. I can get it to do both but I end up planting my back foot.

    I'm a bit rusty on the tre flips because I haven't been doing them on flatground much, only off of stuff. I do the same mistake as you but I quickly fix it by focusing all my weight on the pocket where you put your back foot. That technique easily spins the board 360 and flips it. I can 360 flip without even popping the board because of that. That technique also lets me do fakie bigger flips with less effort than I would have otherwise.

    I haven't really been trying them lately so I guess I have more of a reason to now. I've been trying to perfect my ollies down stair sets. I can do them no problem on 3s and now I'm getting 4s down, but there's only 2 or 3 4 stairs in my town and that's the biggest set we have that's not giant. I did find a 5 stair skating in Detroit today though, but I'm not gonna be able to go there very often. I wanna get my ollies down on them and then start getting better at my kickflips. I can only kickflip a 2 stair right now and that still takes anywhere from like 5-15 tries.

    I bet you could kickflip the 4 stair in my signature. It's about the height of a 3 and the length of a 4. I used to be able to backside heel a 4 stair bigger than the one in my signature and now I can't even kickflip down that 4 stair. I've been focusing too much on grinds I basically can only ollie stairs right now.

    Haha also I'm going to Columbus and Sandusky on Monday and I might go through Detroit on the way back. I've been there once when I was 10.

    Also if you land a 360 flip you're getting me a letter... Never landed a switch 360 flip, only nollie.

    You hitting Cedar Point? You have to dude, it's awesome. Also, Detroit's wayyyy different than it was back then (although I guess that's a given with everything you hear about it). It's not really like how the media portrays it as (it's got its good parts and its bad, but so does every other big city). If you skate in Detroit at all, you really don't have to worry about much since the police always has better things to do than mess with a skater.

    Oh yeah we're going to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and then Cedar Point on day 2. My friend tells me it's not as good as Canada's Wonderland which is owned by the same company as Cedar Point, but whatever lol I can go to both. Toronto is really an exception because it has a really low crime rate. For a city with 2.7 million people a murder happens maybe once a month. The skate scene is awesome and the parks are amazing but security there is a pain in the ass. I never go there even though I'm 40 minutes away or an $8 bus ticket away.

    Assuming you have the chance to skate these places you're going, you should get this app called SkateSpots by TerrierWeb or something like that. I don't know if they have it for Android but it's free on the iPhone. It'll just give you some good places to check out (although not that many people know about the app, so there may not be many spots for certain areas since the spots are all user-submitted). IF you stay in Detroit for a night, try to get to Riley skatepark in Farmington Hills. It's easily one of the better parks in the state and it would only be about 20 minutes away.

    I'm going to go try and get my set, but it's going to be something I can do pretty fast since my camera's nearly dead. If all goes well I should have it up tonight.

    Yeah I know that app. I honestly never use that. Best way is to drive around malls/schools haha. And I can't skate while I'm in the States, even though I just got insurance for 2 days.

    It came up with some decent stuff for me, and I can't do that because my friends and I have basically skated every school in a 5 mile radius and we only have one mall in skating distance. Another good tip I've picked up is big building=skate spot most of the time. But I got 2 sets I could use while I was out, so I'm gonna let you choose which one you wanna try. I got a boneless pop shove it off of this drop that's about the size of that 4 stair in your signature and I got a fakie varial kickflip that's like as sketchy as you can get without falling off the board, but it was my first land for that trick.

    Well I really don't want you to upload something that's not done on flatground, I can't get out tomorrow as I'm packing my bags. I'll only be able to match if you upload it by tomorrow morning.

    OMG I don't know how I did it but messing around I landed my first switch double flip! I barely had it regular stance

    I'm gonna take a letter, I accidentally deleted the fakie varial flip I just filmed and I can't skate until the end of next week.

    This one may not happen because my shoes have like zero grip on the toes dues to repeated Shoe Goo-ing, but I'll still give it a try.

    You can do it! My shoes are worse lol. The whole side is not grippy because of hot glue gun and epoxy glue (ran out of shoe goo long ago)

    Quick question, How do you make a .gif as your signature? I have the .gif, but I can't find a way to put it on here.

    Find a server to host it on. I got Dropbox about 4 years ago before they disabled the public folder so I host mine on Dropbox.
