I Got on the Board

Tuesday, July 31 2001

I got on the board again today and had one of my best days yet. I’m learning that skateboarding is a whole body thing, not just a feet thing. It sounds like a pretty stupid epiphany, especially for someone who’s been skating as long as I have, but it’s working for me.
I find that if squat more, bend more, pump more, go faster, that it’s much easier to pull what I want.
