As the title said - was on a night out reminicing about the skating days. Endless days spent on my BBC in the North west at such hallowed venues as the Southport snake run, the Mini ramp in Ince, and the scarily huge half pipe at Wigan roller rink (which I never dropped in on - the coping was a size of a girder).
So now I am older (36), based in Hertford and live a life full of corporate and family responsibilily and I got home from said night out and thought stuff it. Went on ebay looked at long boards (as a gentle reintroduction) and ended up forgetting I bought a Lush huna (with gullwings!)- until it got delivered. Opened the box, went out on the road and surprised myself at how my body remembered to stay on without falling off!
Since then I have done a minimum of 30 mins a day and feel like a dormant part of my soul has been unlocked. So any of you near or around Hertford want to dare me to ride some hills or grimmace as I attempt a bowl - please raise your hand. Keen to find some good spots.
I fear I will never rise to the previous hallowed levels of performance of tircks such as the No Comply Pop Shove it Flip (that was a big move down my road)! But I am loving it and keen to give it some more.
See you round
