Since it takes me pretty much forever to warm up these days I started skating the curb across the street a bit while I was waiting for Carleigh to arrive. I did a few basic stalls and slappy tails and stuff and started to feel warmed up enough to try kick back tails by the time she arrived. I was also trying front 5-0 to switch crooks kind of. Probably the closest I’ve ever come.
Broomfield was not as crowded as we thought when we arrived as it was just Josh Murphy there along with some scooter kids and mongo pushers. Murphy can get down on rails and he was trying to dial in back overcrooks down the double set. I started doing little kickflips on the bump next to the bowl and some basics on the ledges. Around now everyone started showing up for a pretty heated session. Josh Steele showed up on an old Jeff Kendall board that he was “just gonna cruise around on”. By that he means front 5-0s down the double set first try. Chadman was mellow, but still popping nollie front heels up the black ledge. Carleigh was skating the pool and doing lines from pole jam then kickflip the six. Davis was doing every trick down the double set. John was trying to learn front 5-0s until I slammed on one. Sean killed a back nosegrind 180 out down/up the smile ledge. Max front blunted the double set. Man I don’t even know anymmore. I got a front 5-0 shove out on the black ledge and a first ever noseslide 270 shove out. Hyped on that. At the end I was being dumb and tried to go real slow and feel out a front crooks on the black ledge. Bad idea as I slid out and slammed to my shoulder something fierce. My worst slam in awhile, but luckily nothing serious other than a stiff neck/shoulder. It’s dumb because I had told myself if I were to try that trick to go fast and commit 100%. I didn’t and I paid for it.
After that we went to the Think premiere at Crisis which was a blast. Then we stayed up super late drinking beers and talking about how awesome dolphin flips are.
