To the coping and BEYOND?
Good onya I recon make sure you can ride to the top and just stall or turn and stall rather than jumping or steping up for it as it will start to create a desperate and scetchy style wich may be hard to shake later on.Cant wait to see some footage of you and Holly sessionong,it's rad to have a buggy,,me and Ludi fire each other up all the time plus the skateboarders we skate with are way fucken rad,we are part of the crew straight up.Feel kinda spoilt realy.

cheers joe

: Well, getting better in some things but I still dont have quite enough speed for stalls. I can get one skate up there, but for front stalls I need both with speed to get erect to stand up straight for the stall and for back stalls I need to get my other skate up there. So I need another 2-3 inches of speed!!
: I got it so now I can just step on the coping in the center of the ramp, stand up straight and jump in, then compress down, but that didnt help and I have no idea why. Think cause I hit lower? I guess pumping IS mostly in the knees and the speed comes from really pushing up from a squatted position going up the ramp? Thats where I am having trouble cause of my injury. I'm taking a short lay off cause I think I'm messing up cause of it and Holly is gone next weekend so I might skip. Bummer!
: But I think I can JUMP the spine next time! Its the same drop in as the halfpipe, but the spine is only about 4 feet tall. There are 2 pieces of coping on both sides so my feet arent big enough to stall them both to go over, but I think if I just lift my feet and lean forward to jump it, I have it easy right? Just need to get over the fear mentally. I think I will smash my ass the first time but its well protected lol so it doesnt hurt. Or I could break my nose, hahaha?
: I dropped in a higher ramp and finally got over both the humpty-humps and had a blast with Holly so it was a good sk8n day til my leg said NO. If possible, I need to stall somehow in 2 weeks from now if my leg must rest. Thats the last day this park is open til March.
