@undertime you just keep killing it! @Mark_81 rad nose slide! @Jory you got some great stuff on that curb! No video but I finally figured out how to slappy crooked. First one I tried I got into and wasn't expecting to or much less grind a few feet. Ended on my ass on that one. Landed only one before it got to dark. No video but I do have a witness.

Excellent work Mark... I'm more than familiar with those mental battles!

Thanks for the props gents. Been skating pretty regularly, although not for the past couple of days as I've done myself some kind of mischief in the back department. Fingers crossed it'll feck off asap

Had a good spin on my Natas Panther the other day though (thanks for the musical inspiration @Ben) - https://www.instagram.com/p/B1yNHAUjvxL/

And stoked to get this - https://www.instagram.com/p/B1yE_eOo0m0/

Roll on fellas (and any ladies out there!)

Cheers

Little lunchtime video with some stuff I’ve learnt over the summer.

The switch frontside no comply and the no comply tail are specially for undertime!

Congrats @ Mark_81 mental battles are great when they're won(and hell when not)! @undertime rad as always! Some really nice skating @Jory!
Not much since Haven filmed much of anything. Still working on getting slappy crookeds more than 1 in 30 or so, learned back slappy to push(on top of the curb), fakie 180 powerslide push, and shove it to shifty.

Ummm, they’re not as hard as they look and pretty low impact to try. Some tips...

-Learn flatground fs180 one’s first

Turn your shoulders less than on flatground

Stay mostly in the ramp

- you hardly pop them, you’Re almost sliding the wheels into place

Nothing exciting really but a few slippy slides(finally landed the boardslide shove it but camera died so dont have video proof yet) on the new slappy curb:

and some bails from the before times:

I can actually do everything in that just have a phone that only has enough time from a full charge for 2 minutes tops before the battery dies. :roll:

Learned a new one yesterday.

Got them consistent and cleaner today.
You guys need to start posting something or I'll just start flood posting my crap! I know it sucks to film and people aren't going to parks but no need to not skate. Make your own spot. Carpet skate. Roll on the street and do flat or hit a curb or curb cut. Parks aren't necessary to skate. Break free of the stagnant prison camps that are public skateparks!

Nice work on the boardslides.
I am skating a lot on a car park near my house. Working on learning a lot of flatland tricks that I have never really bothered with cos I usually just carve round in bowls. I could post up videos but it still looks a bit shit. When I have a few tricks in the bag I will do.

Fucked :)

No it's OK really, I think since I've been skating less the injuries seem to take more of a toll. I don't think it's broken but swelled right up so I'm on the old co-codamol now, more as a passtime than for any real benefit.

Looking forward to seeing some or at least reading about it Fen. GoR64 that line was rad! Sorry about the wrist and mend up quick. I'm sure you're already icing and heating it but if not get on it. Justin anytime on board is better than not as you know. Skated nothing new or exciting still need to move the curb out by the pool so I can get more than 1 push. Cant get a slappy on it going that slow. Just enjoying the boardslides for now.

Thanks man, it's kinda healing up now, in the meantime I've started filming more, with a view to start editing tomorrow. As you may know, all of us in the UK are super jealous of having indoor space to build curbs and such, that's like a dream scenario tbh, I don't know why our land is so overpriced. Still, I respect the effort going into making forms and ramps, I know these things don't magically appear.

So yeah, super dope to see. Please post vids with that Jersey Barrier/Vert, that's cool as fuck.

As soon as I can actually land something on it I will. Scratching and dropping in don't count. Been skating the mini when its dry enough and trying to just relearn everything.
@clay_bs7 Glad to hear you're out and rolling. What you working learning or doing? curbs, flat, cruising, freestyle? I know filming can suck so I understand if you don't, but lets hear whats going on, please.

Hey man! Just working on getting my rolling ollies down. Never been any good but actually working on it now and making progress. I'll link a short video I took, albeit embarrassing haha. Thing is, this is the best I've ever gotten besides just rolling around.

*edit - i linked a couple vids from the previous day but managed to get out this evening.

Great intro Doowyrag. Haha.
I was randomly asked to review a carver style board for a Chinese distributor of these things. They are fun enough, but too slow for me to actually buy one, but I tried to be nice and accommodating. If anyone wants to experience the Chinese version of YouTube, here you go.

I skated saturday and sunday. Flatground with a slight slope which I pretend is a hill. Haha. Skating the new enormous board is a serious leg workout. I just cruise around doing carves, powerslides, and ollies. Today is monday, and my leg muscles have ache deep in their cores. I hope this means I will get a bit stronger. The past year has not been a good one for my fitness.

Back on the board! Skated yesterday for the first time in 5 weeks. No injuries this time, rusty but feeling good!
Did some pop shove-it for shuvitcancer day as I missed it (if I remember correctly I was actually physically able to skate on 10th July but it rained like crazy up north)
Got my first 50/50 noliie shuv out and nearly landed crooked tre shuv out - both on the round rail. I was pretty happy with that, considering I had been away from it for a good while! Oh and I tried to fside shuv over the rail, to keep the game running in the other section... It's not happening, going to have to review my expectations! :lol:
I think it'll have to over a board or something pretty small to start with! The pop is there, the timing is not, I just don't get it at all. Probably need some decent speed. Scary scary!!! :lol:

Thanks buddy! Back on it for sure! And yes, it was the ribs, inspired by a few ollies over a rail in normal stance I thought I would be able to ollie over it switch. Never ollied over anything switch before. You can guess what happened! Made a good vid though :lol: (Rib bruiser vid)

This week has been a bit of a milestone!
highlight of Monday was fside pop shuv to nose stall on a ledge. OK I did not go over it as requested in the Skate or Try 2019 but I am getting close! :lol:
Monday's sesh
highlight of Tuesday was heelflip to nose stall... who would have thought... :shock:

Highlight of today was bside crooked to 360 shuv out on the ledge (in the rain! :lol: )

I am skating twice a week these days. Just flatground cruising usually. Ollies, powerslides, burts, carving etc. Today my girl picked me up from the bus station of her home city on her mom's e-bike. Basically a 50cc style scooter with an electric motor. So I skitched along behind her for about 5 km back to her place. The new tankboard I am riding is great for that. I am using 66mm orangatang wheels on it now. They go over everything. Good job. My spitfires would have killed me trying that.

Well, after avoiding the plague for a number of months I skated Micklefield on Monday & Thursday, just to confirm I'm just as shit as I was so little loss there then!! :wink: :D

I went Monday thinking all the kids were back in School, turned up early the park was empty, got my gear on, five scooter kids with grandparents turned up, then five walkers rocked up to have their tea & sandwiches, over the next hour around another 20+ kids turned up, them another around 20 - 25 walkers turned up, it was like a bleeding bank Holiday, so I decided to leg it at this point after around an hours riding, but to be fair I was done by then.

Went Thursday sneaked out of chores for an hour, arrived at 9:59 am I'm on my own, only the odd local dog walker for a full hour of waddle & grind around the park ~.. ..- , then one by one of three other skaters started turning up :D , four scooter kids rocked up had a couple of runs then sat around & disappeared came back with energy drink & fags, sat around had a couple more goes then went again, so just skaters once more, after 2 1/4 hours obviously my hour was up by then :wink: & I was knackered with legs gone! :) Welcome back (for now) :lol:

What is this new park you speak of? It’s not the mythical skate park that Leeds never had is it?

I had a day off work last week so took my board (& recently replaced Dadcam) out to my favourite little bank for the first time in ages.




Which was nice.

@doowyrag as always great edit.
Tried jump starting by posting crap(not doing that much since I dont want this to be me,me,me) but I guess all the others are either busy skating(hopefully!) or on insta or the old fart option, facebook.
Still lurking and hoping but if no one feeds and waters the site its just going to wither and die. Shame. I like insta but forums are nice as well since its easier to interact.
POST YOU FAWKERS!

Hello there.

Always love seeing the posts Doowy.

Plan9 - I'm still lurking but scaled back on the posting as there wasn't really anyone else doing it (was very conscious about the me, me, me aspect too). Would love to see more life here if possible.

But, unfortunately, it won't be from me for a while. Broke my ankle and broke and dislocated a big toe on a bank at the end of August. I had planned to be back on a board in October, but when I saw the physio for the first time last week he basically said "no chance you daft old smelly crippled bastard" (or words to that effect).

Realistically it'll be the end of November before I can step on a board again and from there (probably) a bit of a slog to get mobility, strength and balance back.

I am missing it like you would not fucking believe.

Anyway, I second Plan9's call to arms - be good to see/hear of exploits of any kind.

This site still has a very special place in my heart. Cheers all.

Great stuff doowyrag. Are they Ventures i see? How you finding them. I'm riding a pair of v-lights and think they are great, although they didn't work with my last deck. I'm blaming the deck. Glad it's gone.
Undertime, sounds bad. I hope you get back together ok.
I was skating Friday twice, Saturday, Sunday, and Tuesday twice. Weather means I may miss skating tomorrow, and looks like Friday morn may be taken up with family stuff. Friday afternoon might be mynext skate which seems ages away.
