Truck Grind Progress Update
: : : We are getting a snow storm this weekend, bummer! But maybe I'll get more homework done and finally work tomorrow. *yay!*
: : :
: : : I am wearing gear, YES! I skinned my knee a bit one time so even have knee pads on the uni. No tricks for me for awhile, nothing where I risk injury. Falling off the uni just riding is less dangerous then rollerskating. Most times my feet are down. Rarely my butt hits or I fall forward to a knee. Hands go UP always lol.
: : :
: : : I will put up a vid. As soon as the snowboard season stops here for sure as then my camera man will be back!! HURRY UP SPRING!! I want a video before I get better as I'm sure I'll laugh at it for years lol. Being a spaz is fun and funny! I am wondering if my purpose in life is to amuse myself and others with my antics lol? ;-D
: : :
: : : : : Jays the man!! I really love the vids. :):):):):) No probs on editing as my software is crap so useless til I upgrade which I'm not. Dang, stoked I have a vid made for me. ;-D I'm seriously touched, the butt slams cool lol. My camera man is out snowboarding myself since the season is winding down and with a broken nose lol. In a year when I'm ready to tackle this trick again, I will have a great tutorial going here. I agree, relaxing is the key to learning. Just working on my sidestance now and trying to do jam spins on one foot and one wheel down the rink lol. Once I relaxed on the uni, I learnt it too.
: : : :
: : : : Hi Claudine. Thanks. I thought you'd like the real-time butt-slam. :) As you can see, I'm still learning this trick. But I sure LOVE the sound of my trucks on the coping!! :):)
: : : : I'd LOVE to see some UNI vids!!But don't get hurt!!! Have a great weekend. What's left of it.
: : : : PEACE.....
: : : : :
: : : : : : Nice progress Jay!!! I like the sound of the first vid: sirens before action!!!!!
: : : : : :
: : : : : : Cheers

: : : : : : : : Jay,
: : : : : : : :
: : : : : : : : as always, you are the great entertainer! Photos, films, play by play comments....Thanks again. I'm going to tell Dawn how you talk about her as "Preggo". :~
: : : : : : : :
: : : : : : : : Ha! That was great! First, I could tell the cops were on your a**, as I could hear the sirens in the background in the 1st film.
: : : : : : : :
: : : : : : : : Then, in film 3, you could see all the knee cap skid marks, on the transition, where you had fallen while practicing. One is even created while we watch!
: : : : : : : :
: : : : : : : : Way to go! I can tell your not as afraid of doing this as you were before. Your approach was much more solid. Did I also see a backside grind thrown in??
: : : : : : : :
: : : : : : : : It probably helped your confidence to put your old grind plates onto your new skates. But, you really should update those! Sorry about your toe.
: : : : : : :
: : : : : : : Howdi Biff!
: : : : : : : Thanks for the kind words. I was SO STOKED to hear that you were outta the Brace. Only a matter of time til you're back in the SK8s!!
: : : : : : : Yeah, I've definitely gained confidence in my approach to the coping. That's why my Toe's FUBAR! LOL! I rolled in full blast on my 1st run (prior to self-filming) & went for it. I probably should've done a warm-up run or two. Oh well. I had 'em dialed the previous day, I thought I was on my Game. Not quite.
: : : : : : : Well, guess I'm on down-time this weekend with Preggo. BTW, feel free to tell Dawnie whatever you like. I have no secrets from her. If you knew how much she tolerated from me over the last 17 years, you'd know you couldn't surprise her regarding what I say and/or do!
: : : : : : : Well, best to Holly & Raven. Keep on healing, Brother. Thanks for watching my weak submissions!!!
: : : : : : : Have a great weekend....
: : : : : : : PEACE......Jay
: : : : : : :
: : : : : : : P.S. I know I need
: : : : : : : new slider/grind plates.
: : : : : : : I just have no clue how
: : : : : : : to make those happen. I
: : : : : : : guess I just went with the
: : : : : : : old ones since I knew how
: : : : : : : to attach them & knew they
: : : : : : : worked well for me.PEACE..
: : : : : : :
: : : : : : :
: :
: : good progress, and i really agree about the sound of grinding, love it.
: : cheers, h .
: :
: :
: Right on, Jay....gotta have the sound effects...schweet!
: Been finding snow in Vermont, but dying to skate, too. More vert snow than skate these days. Glad you attached grindbars, I know you missed them. Nice toe, I did my big toe once. Baby gettin big? Progress! Hope your weekend's going swell.

Irene, you can come visit me now and go snowboarding down the neighborhood here lol. We just got a crazy amount of snow! But I'm ready for spring!! I love the sound of grinding too. When I ride my uni since I swivel back and forth I make a lot of swishing sounds which is cool.

Jay, put some flint on your trucks cause that would be cool to watch too!
