So many moving parts! Small adjustments make crazy changes.

Relearning to Skateboard

Today
Stationary Kickflip Practice:
18-6-1
Make rate: 72%. Spin/almost: 24%. Ollie adjustments: 4%
Rolling Kickflip Practice
19-18-13
Make rate: 38%. Spin/almost: 36%. Ollie thuds: 26%

One of the best days, as far as making landings and keeping the failed Ollie out of the picture.
I spent a bunch of time playing around with 360 Ollies, tail stalls, grinds. Also, it took me forever to get the kickflips going. Especially rolling. I probably tried 60 with 2 makes before I honed in on the pop first.

However, I have to say, this video is rad. I like all the tricks, the music is bangin, and skater dudes are hot(even with ponytails)!

Check out one of my favorite websites for all things inspiring and a “making of” video!
