Smaller ramps harder?
: Because of my inline background, I'd call those "t-stalls" mizous. Why invent new names if we'd get mocked by inliners for putting old wine in new bags?

We get mocked anyway for riding 'old style' skates. I myself prefer T-Stall, but each to their own.

: Anyway, yeah, Allan, smaller ramps are harder IMO. Smaller ramps mean less time to arrange your feet, shift your weight and adding style to riding. Also, just as blunt knives are more dangerous than sharp ones, smaller ramps give you less time to bail out on a fall. I hate stalling, grinding and airing on small ramps(except when it's supposed to be used as a jumpramp). I really hate the authorities for spending millions on skateparks like the Malieveld, and not putting down a vert anywhere.

Yea, i hate doing FS stalls on small ramps for the simple reason that if i bail forward there's nothing to slide down. Doesn't help that most of the small parks round here have metal ramps and kinda crappy tarmac, but then again it's better than nothing.

: Rant, rant, rant, rant. First I should finish the right skate. Then I'll smack the authorities head with it. "Do something right for once!"

You can do it!
