After a lazy morning, then a bunch of family stuff I went to Saul’s bowl a little before 3. It was just Saul and Bren when I got there. I was hyped on a small crew, but on my first run I could tell my body wasn’t able to skate well. I’m going to blame the new STFs. Which is kind of funny because Saul and Bren were laughing about how much I obsess over my setup, but really, those wheels hit the coping and they don’t absorb any of it. They bounce off coping with no forgiveness. So yeah, I bailed axle stall after axle stall. Bren and Saul were ripping. Saul was doing lots of double double lines, skating faster, ripping. Bren has super good frontside carves and was slowing around good. After awhile Bren left and a dude named Josh showed who flowed around good too. I didn’t really get any more tricks, but I feel like I did a little better at carving. It was fun. Not sure I’ll stick with STFs after all. Ha ha.
