Skate Action From Last Week
[Redcar Session 2] We hit Redcar twice last week: Saturday morning and then a mid-week session on Wednesday evening. We wanted to fit the Wednesday evening session in because we knew we weren’t able to go at the weekend as we were all away.
As it turned out, the mid-week session was really good. The skatepark was quiet, well, empty in fact. We had the whole thing to ourselves. As a result we’ve decided to go again this Wednesday, and hopefully we can up our skating to two sessions each week.
Anyway, I’m making progress so there’s a video of last week’s action. It’s all still the basic stuff, but it’s fun, and each time we add a new trick we can start to use a little more of the ramp. Current tricks include:
- Rock to Fakie
- Rock and Roll
- Backside 50-50 / Axlestall (with my skating the distinction is blurred)
- 180 kick-turn Rock to Fakie type thing
Tricks I’d like to learn next:
- Blunt to Fakie
- 5-0 to Fakie
- Spine Transfer (one way or another)
- Fakie, pop off the coping to rock position – ride back in
The clip includes more music from The Kooks, which by the way has turned out to be an excellent album. The track is called “Eddie’s Gun”… Enjoy!
