Took a vacation day. So hyped. Woke up early and met old guys at the Arvada park. I got there first and rolled around attempting to wake myself up. It wasn’t easy. John and Fuzz showed up after a bit. John started killing it out of the gates and a theme started where the three of us would try something, but really it was the two of them playing and me draining the life out of them so they would move to the other side of the park. It took me way too long to ollie onto/roll off the bigger marble ledge at the top. We ended up in the mini bowl for awhile where it was flyout transfers to the little tranny. Neil arrived. John and Fuzz killed it. John ended it with a marathon run with a transfer out, fakie pivot fakie, blunt fakie and probably 20 more tricks. My “transfers” were basically the worst thing you’ve ever seen and not into the tranny at all. I was happy to do kickflips to fakie on the little bank after though. Next we were kind of doing manuals and stuff. Dean showed up in a foul mood and left within minutes. I eventually went over and started trying boardslides on the long cement ledge. Pretty much the funnest thing there. After awhile John, Neil and Fuzz joined. We started trying them followed with a front 50 across the bank to C ledge. Fuzz kind of did it first coming off early then riding into the bank. Neil got in perfect several times, but never committed to landing it. John rips, but can’t do boardslides. Cracks me up. He got the 50 perfect though. So sick.
John and Fuzz left. I tried to ollie the cement ledge into the bank for a long time and eventually got it. Baby steps. It was really bad. Neil came close to tailsliding it, but couldn’t commit to it. Around now another old dude showed up. Eric from Greeley. I haven’t seen him in years. We kind of rolled around for a bit before settling into a nice old guy session on the mellow blue round bank. This ruled. Eric threw down some rad boneless and no comply variations that I don’t think have names. I got no comply bigspin, bigger spin some, no comply front shove fakie and some weird mutant no comply front shove body varial before we jumped into more modern times. Eric was getting close to heelflip sex change, bigflip. I think he got the heelflip sex change. I managed a very pivoted bigflip and started hucking 3 flips to fakie. That trick is about as rare as they come for me and I think I’ve probably only done 3 or 4 in my life. It took a bit, but I put one down bolts at a full 360 that may have been one of the best feeling tricks I’ve done in awhile. Riding high after that I put down fakie treflip (2nd try) and halfcab flips first tries. So hyped! Last was a trick I’ve never done on a bank before. Some weird no comply bigspin with a stalefish grab that Rob has on lock. It wasn’t great, but it gave me some ideas. After some sitting around and resting for a bit I joined Eric in the little bowl. He killed that thing. I didn’t. I did manage some back 50s in places other than the lowest spots and a few front disasters on the lowest spot. I left after awhile of that totally exhausted. My Fallen shoes were hurting my feet so bad on run outs. I’ve had them over a month and I still get blisters on the top of my toes. Ugh. Good thing they are pretty much toast.
