skate journal: escaping the wind for a short garage session (oct 6, 2017)

Went out to the garage feeling tired after a week of work. It was pretty windy at times and I didn’t want to deal with the wind. I ended up having fun. I skated the little ledge thing. Did a few front 50s and front 5-0s to start with. I tried them near the end of the ledge so that maybe it would make me feel slightly more comfortable coming off the end of ledges. Then I did a couple nosegrinds. The second one is shown above. It made me laugh, but it felt cool. Then I skated the ledge backside. Back 50s and 5-0s were fun. That side of the ledge hasn’t been skated as much so it felt a little more raw to grind it. I tried back 5-0 front 180s out for awhile. Never got a proper one, but had some ones that were more like jibs to powerslide. Kind of got a stationary treflip. Tried a few fakie 5-0s, but never got close. Went in and made dinner.
