Skate Session: Terre Haute Skatepark -- @nicksmitley

in #steemskate3 years ago (edited)


I went to Terre Haute, Indiana to skate the park there before work.
It's mostly a bowl park, and I'm not much for skating a bowl but I tried to throw a few things down.

I have never really been able to BS 50-50 grind, so I worked on those and stuck one for the video. I also worked on trying some flip tricks off a kicker, which I've never really tried before either..which led to me breaking my second deck within a week. *Facepalm

Luckily the board held together well enough for me to just skate it backwards and still land a few tricks.

It was a decent day to get warmed up before work, probably a little too warmed up.
Enjoi!!

Thanks brother! It means a lot.
Yea I'm feeling more comfortable with tricks, just fueling the fire to try more.
Made work great but I was dead tired by the end of the night lol.

Awesome vid man! you got that bs flip really well!

Thanks man! I see you skate too? Would like to see some clips from you. Should check out #steemskate, a contest @web-gnar does for us.

I am currently travelling and (unfortunately) don't have my board with me. Plus I really am an amateur, i cant even land kickflips most of the time...
I might post some clips when i get back home :-) i will in the meantime check #steemskate and @web-gnar for sure! Thanks for the tip and keep those nice videos coming our way.

For sure man! And all skill levels welcome.
