    Default New here. Skating for 9 months

    Hi.
    new to the forum,
    I recently graduated college, and am now working full time , but somehow managed to start skateboarding in my late 20's. I find it a great exercise, and technically challenging.

    Last night I landed my first BS 180! working on heelflips and front-side shove its.


    Anyone else a fan of Aaron Kyro?

    Most won't admit it openly for some reason. I'm a fan myself. I like what he's trying to do.

    Front shuvs have always been so awkward. I find them easier switch, for some reason.

    Can't say I've ever heard of Kyro though!

    I like Kyros stuff even though it isn't of my discipline there is another dude Keith Butterfield who does some really good freestyle trick tips.

    Saw that Kyro guy for the first time this week, I've never seen anything so cringe worthy in my life. His content feels like a kid's show about skateboarding.

    Pro skaters are human just like the rest of us. Jay Adams, Hosoi, and others had some pretty nasty and despicable times not to mention Gator. They also get criticized for being too mainstream nice like Tony Hawk.

    Follow whoever you like, someone will criticize them regardless of which ones you like best..

    I'd say Kyro is my 5th favorite skater of all time, mostly because he has awesome how-to videos. Andy Schrock is my first.

    And nice, never too late to get into the sport!
