Had a really blah and downer of a day. Got some stuff done early, but the day seemed to drag on without much happening. After a fun game of football with Ollie cheered me up I went to Valmont as the thunder clouds loomed above. The warm up period consisted of various slappy noseslides. Frontside, b/s, switch, etc. It was fun. Then I waxed the ledge beyond belief. I guess the wax was still warm as it had been in my trunk, but it went on so thick that Hulslander would be proud. I have been thinking about front tails a lot lately so I tried some. It was scary with how fast the ledge was and the first couple I got into slid so fast that I just kind of fell off to fakie which I was fine with. They were at least sliding which is rare for me and I followed one up with a f/s halfcab flip. I went for back 50, but did a back 5-0. Love when that happens. Also got back 50. Came close to kick back 50, halfcab noseslide and crooks to fakie. I did a ton of slappy crook stalls on the curb. Man that trick rules. I should wax that curb up too. Did a few flippers, nothing too special. Had trouble with front 50s. Never got a treflip. Got one front tail to forward that slid awhile. Then the rain came and it was total chaos. I went home and setup our new TV so the kids could watch Harry Potter. It’s my fourth TV. None of which I pay for and everyone of them has been slightly better then that last. This one was so heavy though. Can’t wait until people start getting rid of flat screen tvs.
