a question on pumping
: : My skateboarder buddy always swings his arms back, palms facing back, then swings them forward while carving around the lip. Is this how to go faster? I just squat and push up through the curve, but would be nice to get more speed.
: You have to find the optimal way to push. The arms can help to to gain speed, but I always imagined that you referred to erratic arm movements when you talked about "spazing" (Btw, a Spatz means sparrow in German).
: : I can post another picture showing this cause he always does this but I think I overposted on pics, so sorry Bernhard!
: I first read "overexposed" and couldn't find the pic to be overexposed. I got your meaning only on second reading. No, you didn't overpost. No one did till now.
: : You are awesome!!
: You, too! Congrats on your new job! And learn to bail on your knee pads. We always suffer from reading about your slams.

Again sorry for posting so many pics but these are my first pics sk8n a bowl so I got excited lol, as usual. ;-P

I seem to be healing OK. I wont rush into anything since my hand is crucial to work. I think at times I just have bad luck then everything gets better! Looking forward to my new job. I'm getting really good at illustrating!! I will finish up the t-shirts starting next week. A great thing about my new job is that its 10 mins from the Greenbelt bowls, woo-hoo!!!! :-D So is it nice enough to skate in Germany now? Hope so!
