Met up with my ole skating buddy from back in the day today at Loughborough Southfields skatepark, for a 'dust off the cobwebs after the shit weather' bowl sesh

Skated my new SC Kendall Snake, with Gullwing SuperPro 3's in neon pink, and my old school, original 65mm SC Slimeball Big Balls.

I had not skated it properly since setting it up, and it doesn't dissappoint. The trucks are super turny and not a single wheel bite all morning. Proper good fun.

Pic shows hosoi rocket wheels, but i changed these today for the bigballs before skating it!

Lovely looking board that Canky! Me wantee.

Only skated twice last week due to dodgy (trailing/popping) knee and family commitments. Thought the lack of action would remedy said knee. It did not. Skated at the Senior Skate session at Oslo Skate Hall last night and the little knobbly fucker is currently registering a Michael Gove on the painful irritation scale. Bastard.

One of the two skates last week was outside though. Stoked on the lack of snow and praying it doesn't return. Got this. Made me smile. Lots.

Back in the groove again this week after what seems like ages. So nice to have two skates in a row in sunshine.

Fakie pivots and cab feebles are new. Finally conquered proper stand up frontside 5-0's this week rather than slashing them and im edging closer to a decent frontside smith too.....

been skating quite a bit and not documenting things much (posting and filming on any platform) - time is limited (changing jobs/companies - international travels) so I concentrate on the skating when I have a window. Loads of new interesting tricks primarily aiming at expanding my switch trick repertoire, fside 180 to switch 5-0 switch 180 out, switch fside 180 to 5-0 bside 180 out, things like that...

went for a summery evening roll at Concrete Waves yesterday, and scored (for me) a skateboarding first - my first pebble!
I had just dropped into the pool at the shallow end, and was about to frontside carve the deep end, when it felt like one of my back wheels had suddenly fallen off! I strained my hip a little trying to avoid doing the splits, but no real injury to myself.
But I have flatspotted one of my new Speedlab wheels, and my board started to sound like a moped :(
I have since moved the flatspotted wheel to the front of the board in the hope that it won’t sound quite as annoying.
Any tips on dealing with a flatspotted wheel?

hooray, yes I chuffin did today!!

A nice sunny early roll around with HarryR at a very sunny quiet Micklefield, trying to find our feet again & our Mojo's :lol: , as we were tuckered out at around 11am & a bit, a good few younger skaters turned up, this place in recent times has become a skatepark again with skateboarders using it, rather than a plague of clueless kiddies on all manor of crap, not the best skatepark you could use but it's the best outdoor we have around these parts ! :D :D

Yep, what he said. ^^^

First skate this year for me :shock:

Perfect conditions. Apart from rusty skills it doesn't get much better than that.

Dartford skatepark this morning. Great weather and friendly crowd of older skaters.Early morning sessions are proving popular amongst the veterans of the area. Usually a good crowd of like minded skaters there from about 8am onwards on weekends before the cool kids turn up. Worth rocking up if you are in the SE London/NW Kent area.

Wenr and checked out the old concrete bowl at Combe, Oxfordshire at the weekend, good to see it's still there and being maintained by volunteers as there was talk of maybe filling it in a few years ago. It's a nice spot for rolling around and getting used to carving, banks etc.

Not been out consistently recently but had a roll at Churchdown the other week. I was pleasantly surprised with my session as not skated the bowl for a good few months, things clicked straight out the gate. Been out on my cruiser a bit, non stop pushing for over an hour = un happy calf! :% back to normal after a couple of days thanks to tiger balm.

Been to Combe bowl myself many moons ago - it's rad it's still there & people are maintaining it, proper bit of skate history it's a relic! But mega fun from memory.

Had some great waves over the bank holiday weekend which forced me to get my skateboard out on my return. I found some metal ramps that no one seems to go to that are less rusty than me and have had a couple of sessions there this week.

Just practiced some basics on the mini ramp and had a great time.... damn you winter for killing my skate stoke ..-

After years of dicking about and hovering about on here and telling myself not to take skating back up and be a golfist or some other shit, I can now officially answer the question "Did I skate today"

and the answer is a massively pleasing.......YES!

Had a skate this morning as I woke up early. Not surprising as I fell asleep at about 8 last night after too many Doom Bars. Unfortunately the quality of my skating was reduced from my usual crap level to super sub crap due to previously mentioned Doom Bars.

It is a nice pint though. b~

Been skating a bit recently, but unfortunately not drinking as much as @wavesnwheels

This is from last week. Board from 1990, music from 1985, idiot from 1974 - https://www.instagram.com/p/BxCW5TiIvHz/

Nothing exciting or even good but im just trying to get my legs back now that we have sun after I get off work. Once I get some new stuff or relearn a lot of my old stuff I'll take the time and deal with the hassle of dragging out the tripod, finding the wide angle or fisheye, finding a decent angle or 2, chasing the dog off the flat or the decks, rigging the power cod since my phone will die after 2 minutes of filming, etc etc etc. Theresa reson why I dont post many clips anymore. BTW, was logged out automatically again when I first tried posting this 3 times(had auto log in selected that time)!

Good to see you skating again (though it´d be better if there was less bloodshed?)!

Been skating fairly regularly the past few months, but my skill level is steadily declining.

Had a good session at my local this morning - been messing about with set up! Gone from a 10” to a 7.75” now to a 8.50” all without spending a penny so far this year. That’s how much gear I bought last year! Still it’s fun to tinker. Will be out on the board again tomorrow morning.

Happy shredding all.

Mellow session with my daughter at Cyclopark in Gravesend. Tried to get some decent lines in the clover bowl for most of the session. My legs feel like lead now.

Nice one Warwick. Glad the ramp got done.

I was tempted to chip in as I saw your post.

However I can't skate vert and have no idea if the location was near enough to me to be able to get there often enough to skate it.

Nice transfer!

Had another hour this morning - getting out more frequently now. Spent some time learning how to roll switch.... I think it will benefit in the long term. Felt super sketch at first but felt better towards end of session.
