    Had a late night parking lot flatbar session with the boys tonight, filmed some clips for instagram haha. I got bigspin front board, back lip, fakie shuv switch front board, pop shuv lip and fakie bigspin lip. I'll post it once the clips are e-mailed to me. I haven't landed a straight back lip in years, so i was stoked on that.

    Teaching my kid oliie 180's rolling backwards (forgive my old self for forgetting the technical term), and I was doing 360 kickflips (still got It)on his popsicle stick board.I usually like wide pool boards with designated nose/tail, because I dont like change.Going to buy a launch ramp soon too, and increase in medical coverage too.

    rolling backwards = fakie
    any relationship that matters - a friendship, a family, a romance, a band - anything - is a perilous and fragile thing because along with all the amazing experiences and creations that can come from something so intimate and exhausting comes the possibility for things to crumble and shatter or whither and die. when that happens, it's easy to forget what was precious amidst all the disaster. we should always carry our history with us but never let it bury us.

    I enjoy skating Friday through Monday. Especially during hot weather.

    The warm weather is finally sticking around and I'm fuckin lovin it. Been skating a lot with some friends who I used to skate back in the day with. Nice to see friends who stopped pick it back up again!

    Last night was a good flat ground sesh. Starting to get my Big Flips and Fakie Big Flips more consistent. Been flirting with Nollie Inward Heels, getting close, hopefully soon I'll start getting them. Overall I'm getting a lot more consistent with the tricks I already know and adding a bunch of new ones. It's gonna be a good year.

    Met up with a friend who is actually a really good teacher. Was practicing dropping in on half pipes when I slammed pretty bad and bruised my jaw and knees. Oh well. I got back up because I was super stoked on my progress and spent the rest of the day on flatground where I landed my first pop shuvit

    Spent a half an hour working on getting some footwork tricks together on my new set up. Smaller board and faster bearings are taking a bit of getting used to.

    Chilling before heading out for a quick sesh. Probably will work a little more on my footwork tricks.

    It seems like the weather and my work schedule can't line up to get a good sesh in here.

    I finally got out for a little bit. I loosened my trucks a little bit and did some footwork. Before I went skating I read a little bit about getting over fear. With that in mind I started working on beginner Primos for the first time since breaking my wrist 3 years ago working on learning them.

    Oh man i had a great day today, it was meant to rain all day but the sun came out instead, beautiful blue sky. Had to take advantage, went out with some buddys, landed a few tricks first try at the skatepark, even filmed a little bit, was super fun, so damn stoked on today, i want to try to do this constantly throughout the summer.

    Although I had a good day yesterday I can see the disdain for scooter kids. There was one kid around 8 or 9 on his scooter at the park where I go and he started riding it through peoples basketball games and shit. His dad was there trying to get him to. Stop. No luck.

    Digging those alva boards. I wish I still had my uncle's first skateboard. I don't remember what model it was, but it's what made me discover skateboarding. I was rummaging through the storage area we had in Philadelphia and I found it and asked my mom what it was, and she was like "That's Doug's old skateboard, grandpa never could seem to let that thing go" (Doug was her little brother who was killed when he was 15). Then she took my inside and showed me some photos in a photo album of her brother skateboarding, how there used to be a halfpipe in the backyard for him and everything etc. And that's how I figured out what skateboarding was. That was when i was around 7 years old, never did get into ramps or tricks aka actually skating until i was 11 or so, but I cruised around my driveway almost daily until that point.

    tl;dr every time i see those boards it reminds me of that moment that i first saw a skateboard after i pulled one out from storage.

    A rental management company is working on 4-5 houses around the neighborhood right now. Around the beginning of the month they dumped huge freaking piles of gravel in the street in front of those various houses. Guess I won't have any good spots to ride close to my house until the next time the street sweepers come clean up the leftovers.. LOL at being too lazy to go two blocks over to find good pavement..

    Started learning how to get out of Caspers. Got my cheater Primos down, and started working on switchblades. I'm thinking about tailwhips next.
