: : Nice. Both of those looked like fun little ramps. You were putting on a Tutorial there. I hope you know I intend to steal as many tricks from you as I possibly can. you've been warned. LOL! The Ho-Ho's to fakie look especially do-able.....if I can actually sk8 pre-RC I may try that one before you get're looking good.PEACE.
: : BTW: Raven's skating AND video skills stay top-notch. Like the Old Man, I guess.
: What are Ho-Ho's?

Seriously??? I followed one thread w/you & Robert about sk8boarders. Did you not skate almost exclusively with them as a rollerskater? I did. In fact, if it weren't for my good friend, Kirk, I never would've started skating transitions.
Anyway, while not technically a Ho-Ho I was referring to your 2 handed handplant that you roll away from fakie(parallel).
On a sk8board,if you do a 2-handed handplant while balancing board on feet it's called a Ho-Ho. It usually involves walking on hands on deck, transitioning to one hand to grab board, then back into ramp like standard invert.
I got alot of good-natured ribbing about my handplants cuz for YEARS they were ALWAYS 2-handed & my sk8s were tied on.My buddy would never call 'em inverts.
And, if you knew all along what a Ho-Ho was & were just screwing with me,I guess it worked.
I'll be skating with you in less than 2 weeks. I'm really stoked.I THINK I may be able to lace up for 'Old Dudes Night' @ Area 702 this tue......I hope.
Have a great weekend, Bro.
