Hey All. Well after Buba's photos, I'm embarrassed to even show this but I know a couple of you asked me for it so here's installment one of my limited progress on truck grinds.
I continue to have difficulty arresting my rotation to only 90 degrees. My body wants to turn 180. So far, I've only been able to get 1 skate on the coping with the other skate rolling on the platform. Not REALLY grinding, but I'm getting the feeling of my trucks on the coping. Which is ALOT different feeleing than my ghetto grind "plates" I made for my old skates. So anyway, without further excuses here are a couple of video clips from last weekend of me trying.
This is about a 4 foot tall 1/4 pipe I'm trying the grinds on:
