Skateboarding

K-Grind, circa 2010

Not sure if I can still do these to be honest, haven’t picked up the skateboard in a while, over a year I think. The place in the pic evokes some fond memories though…. Growing up as kids this was one of the only spots near us that had a skateable curb and was undercover – so when it rained a lot and you were in need of a roll around and a few grinds this was the go-to spot, the curb was tiny as well so a great place to learn new stuff and then take it to bigger ledges which was always a bit of a learning curve. For ages I had tailslides dialed at this Subway spot but couldn’t ollie high enough to get them locked in on bigger ledges, it took months till I got there but with most things if you set your mind to it and practice – you’ll get there. I must admit I really do miss the days of rolling around the skate park and hanging out with friends all afternoon having so much fun you forget to eat and only stop when the sun goes in but we can’t stay kids forever… Or can we?
