Went to Northglenn after a Crisis with a rad crew. Jake and Dave. We arrived to a crowded park with lots of Denver heads. Mike Marks was there absolutely destroying with some other Reed wheels rippers. Andrew and the No Love dudes were there. Stefan was there destroying the bowl. I thought I would be feeling better, but as soon as I set my board down I knew it was bad. Even after two days my knee pain was intense. I couldn’t squat, I had no confidence at all. Dave was ripping all over the park through the crowds on every obstacle. It made me so jealous. I wanted to be motivated, but my pain prevented me from trying. Jake was hanging with Stefan. Derek Yale showed up! It ruled to see him. He was doing his same fakie manuals for awhile and then just flowing so easily all over the park. After awhile I just sat down and gave up. I was so incredibly depressed. If I had drove I would have left and maybe even left my board at the park. Dave was killing the little bank. Back tail, back tail fakie, crooks to fakie, maybe switch front crook? Jake almost got noseblunt on it. Near the end of the night we skated the bowl. I just carved and bailed axle stall. Jake and Dave padded up and got gnar. They both did frontside airs in the deep. Jake had front smith. Dave almost did some pretty big backside airs. Every time I bailed the run out hurt beyond belief. I decided I’m not going to skate again until I get some things figured out. I supposed I deserve this after skating basically 700 days in a row. Ugh. But nothing is worse then skating this bad.
