skate journal: cold school with ollie for awhile (feb 6, 2018)

After dinner Ollie and I went over to the curb area across the street. It felt much colder than it said (44) it was. Ollie was complaining the whole time. He couldn’t do a shove it and it was bumming him out. He said it was too hard. Ha. He skated for awhile though. I suggested he try front 180 up the curb and after awhile he got a couple. It was cool. He did manage several shove its and fakie shoves. He did some manuals and stuff too. I mostly tried curb tricks. Back 50s, nollie back tails, got a couple switch crooks jibs. There were a lot of rocks making it not as fun as normal. Ollie left and I tried a few kick back tail which I got close to. Then I went behind the school, did a few axle stalls, ollied onto the easier rock once or twice and then bounced.
