skate journal: short and stubborn session at the school (oct 31, 2017)

Posted in Skate Journal on November 1st, 2017 by corpo

Went over to the school on a chilly night and start playing on the curb. Just did various nose/tail stalls and 270s out at first. Then pivots, then nosepicks. After awhile I got bored and headed up towards the school. I passed my son and his friends biking which was funny. I hit the ledge right by the entrance for a couple nose jibs. The switch front nose was the most fun. Then I went behind the school and took several tries to ollie onto this little rock. Then I tried a line of front 180, halfcab flip, ollie onto the rock. The halfcab flip took forever. Literally like 40 tries. I got the rock ollie that try luckily. Then I went home. That rock is small, I look forward to skating it more and hopefully becoming more able to easily hop onto it.
