Back on the horse

where you skated ... and what you broke

Back on the horse

3 months back skatin after 36 year break. Getting the hang of it again.
After serious whack to the head which required 6 stitches and a week off purchased a lid and still nervous about anything that involves stalling on coping. Happy just carving around for the time being. :oops:

Solid grind, looking good!
I'm two months in from a 32 year brake, and I'm not even close to the coping yet.. well done!

Thanx for the props. I'm lucky to be self employed and free to use time as I please. So was at skate park near where I do biz pretty well 5 times a week all summer. That helped pick it up again pretty quick. Now about half way back to 79 standards but progress slowing down quite significantly. Still having a blast and shed around 10 lbs in 4 months so not complaining. Looking forward to indoor wooden ramps over winter to regain some coping skills with less painful slams. Then will hopefully rip those crete bowls next sping. Cheers.

3 months!? You look solid, I would never have guessed.
