I rolled around the 10.5 foot bowl today!
: Claudine, you are a lucky girl! Skating so much during winter ...
: : I guess there are no really grippy toe stops?
: The Kryptonics toe stops are sufficiently grippy to me. Seems to me that they are made of the same PU they use for their 78A wheels. I use their toe stops on my ramp skates and on my street skates and I am very happy with them.

Yes, I am! But also determined lol. Some days its below freezing and I still go if the bowls are dry. :-D Those days I might be the only one out there. Today it was a unseasonably warm day, 50F, there were about 40 skaters there! I skated with 2 girl skateboarders too. Most the kids stick to the street course. There were a dozen vert skaters in the big bowl. So that gave me plenty of time in the little bowl.

Where do I get the kryptonics? Are they small or big cause I cant do truck grinds if the stopper is taller then my trucks. But if I can get myself out, I would just lower myself in the big bowl more often if there isnt anyone up there. I was totally tired when I skated it otherwise I would have tried to pump out some too. I can now see myself doing vert, one day!
