Midweek Mini Session

Amidst the roar of the cicadas sexin' in the trees, in a small field on the east side of town, lies a 7' mini ramp that begs for attention... Thursday night it got some Cretin Love from Nikoli, Junior, Phil, Skidzilla, and Ward. I struggled with everything except rock-n-rolls. I've got those locked in on the new ramp. A couple more sessions and I'll be a bit more comfy. Skidzilla was cruisin' with the fs slashers and a few 5-0s, and the longest runs of the evening. He's very comfy. Phil threw blunt axle stalls and rock sliders with little effort. Juniors 360 slider just looks and sounds so cool. Ward seemed to be taking it easy, as he looked so relaxed, but his sweepers were perfect, as were his fs rock-n-rolls. Skidzilla barked at him like a circus ringmaster demanding stretched out layback grinds as if Ward were a trained skate monkey there only for his amusement. Ward didn't mind, 'cause he's cool like that. And he's got the skills to deliver. The sun and heat definitely dimished the gnar a bit, but we had a good time, as usual. DUH, we we're skating! Video evidence presented below.

    Skidzilla's Rule #3: If you can't skate, hang out with good photographers.

    Thanks again (and again and again ad nauseum) to Philthy for building this thing of beauty. It proved the movie adage, "If you build it, he will come."

    Philthy built it and I came! (Prbly wooda anyway tho' - so maybe it doesn't prove anything).

    I think we were more wet than dirty. Due to the 7 foot water marks, where a down skater just skidded in for a fall. Good skating, I need this kind of workout more often. Thanks for those who skated and for those who didn't come on out and try this large mini ramp. Those with cameras rock. Dane you missed out.
