I got my first proper Axle Stall today   cheese

I went skating today and found an old park that has some new features that are really good to learn on.
Rock to Fakie is next on my list

Skating everyday is definitely the way to go. I need repetition get my confidence up, just like snowboarding.

Cool man, I’ve never been able to do rock to fakies but I’m working on them.
I found a mini… mini ramp at an outdoor park which is sweet. I pulled off a rock to fakie on it today but it doesn’t really count cause it has a metal edge instead of a coping so it was more of a roll to fakie lol.

Next on my list is Rock to Fakie and tail stall so I can link it together.
And I’m starting to learn how to turn the other way on a quarter cause right now I’m not an ambi turner teacherboy

It’s from Zoolander, bad joke, someone will get it.

I mean I can only turn backside on quarter pipes… which is kinda lame

Yeh Im a lot more confident on backside turns. Will work on frontsides too on the w.e

I’m finding heelflips more easier than kickflips. That normal? :o

Not sure I can’t do heel flips and land 1 out of 100 kick flips.
But I do know people that find heel flips easier.

that was the same for me when i was younger (20years ago :( )

felt more natural to flick the board with my heel than toes

been doing some ollies in the back of the shop on carpet

getting the rhythm back is hard

my problem is going to be the lack of time i can spend on a board

been watching the BW clips on ollies and kickflips etc - very helpful guys!!
