Getting it back
What type of gap? Do you have any pics of where you skate? Is it listed in any of the skatepark sites?

: : Yesterday I decided to start rolling in again. I am now charging the bowl and rolling in. It is so nice to have that kind of speed and do a nice grind. After a few weeks, I have finally gotten back one of my old tricks. It is like a boneless footplant on a skateboard. I pop out of the bowl and land on my left toe stop while my right leg gets held behind my back. It used to be a very easy trick, but it is nice to have it back. I skated everyday this week and my legs are so f'n sore that I can barely walk during the day. I am having a blast. I think my patience will pay off and my goal is to have at leat one of my flips and my layback air back my the end of November.
: So cool! You'll have to get pics soon. :-)
: I have the same problem too. My legs are so damn tired and ache........ I skate hard everyday, an hour or two or three+ lol. I sugar up to forget they dont want to move. Not sure how to recover quicker. Think my body will adjust. I dont want to rest. Right now I have a big bruise below my calve from jumping my first gap. Its a little swollen and purple but should heal in a few days. Thats OK......I won a popcicle over it so it was totally worth it!! :-D
