: : : Hi Ludi,
: : :
: : : glad you made it back here! I just did a report on the opening of an new skate shop here in Freiburg. They are building their own longboards and downhill boards. Even in special girls variants.
: : das ist sehr rad.
: : gday mr b, how are you? what a coincidence, im in the process of putting together a longboard. ive purchased some old gullwing sidewinder trucks, new bennet alligator wheels and our old mate karl[the skull has returned] is making me a 38 inch deck. i am hoping to have it up and going in a week or so.
: : on sunday we travelled to bendigo [2 hrs north] to sample their new bowl/park, what a pleasant surprise, well balanced. i took it easy [left shoulder still sore] lots of carving and grinding and some air. karl hurt his knee a bit. we will revisit this park soon.
: : cheers h.
: So you too need a street toy while the body's healing lol? ;-D I want to see!
: Poor Bernhard. For me no real skating for 2+ more weeks. The swelling isnt going down a lot. The fibers are tight so I cant fall weird since that would rip them now. I hope to roll easy this weekend. Might need to kitchen skate tonight lol.
hi claudine, sorry to hear about your last stack, sounds like youve torn yourself a 2nd bum. i hope you mend quickly.
your right on the money about the longboard, we have a large drainage ditch right near us. after mossjam o8 in feb, i enjoyed watching the guys ripping the ditch. now all i need is bearings + deck bolts . im getting them tomorrow after rollersk8ting with rory. so hopefully i could be wobbling at the ditch on sunday. ill pester joe to show me how to present photos on mr b,s great forum , i promise.
my left shoulder is still sore but much better, keep your chin up and get well. once were 40 we no longer bounce on concrete. take it easy. cheers h.
