Finally hit the vert
Well, after forteen years of not getting on my quads and doing a little street skating a few months ago, I finally hit a skatepark today. I sucked! It was like the first time I ever skated vert. I got better after a while, but did absolutely no tricks and could barely go wall to wall. I was able to drop in on the smaller walls, but my legs were like jello. The last time I skated vert was about 8 years ago on my inlines. How long did it take for all of you to get to feeling somewhat comfortable? I think just going from inline to quad is so hard after all of these years, but once I get the basics down, I think the tricks will come back reasonably quick. I skated for only an hour and I ache! I think starting out on a halfpipe would have been easier. I was stuck skating a combo pool and did I say that I sucked!
