Thought Id better introduce myself. I started skating about a month ago because my 9 year old son is obsessed…and yep I SUCK (but I am a girl)!!!
I was going to head down to Coburg tonight to meet you all , but I thought it best that I stay home and practice, as the acrobatic skills of my skateboard are far more developed than my own. I was seriously concerned that some innocent bystander may get injured by the freespirited little board.
I did have a win today though…I landed my first ollie…I was thrilled to see the wheels FLY…and I mean FLY about 2 centimetres into the air ( Im told its not the height that matters in the initial stages, but the technique.) Anyway, the board didnt scoot out from under me and I didnt end up with another bruise on top of another on my very tender tail!!!
Hope to meet up with you all soon…however as much constructive advice as possible would be appreciated…some destructive slagging probably wouldnt go astray either!!!
