Same Blog New Location

It just occurred to me that I did not put in a final post here at blogger letting people know about the move. I purchased the domain name and have moved my blog over to wordpress. I was ready for something new and more upgradable. I am loving it. This is my final post from blogger. If you want to keep up with my blog you will need to update your rss readers with the new feed and bookmark the new address.

I have now been on twitter for a couple of months now and am loving it. Jon is the one that got me into it and I use it a lot. For those that may not know it is like mini blogging about what I am up to throughout the day. Occasionally I post photos taken with my phone, but mostly it is used to communicate what I am up to. If you are on twitter and want to follow me my twitter name is joshmetts. If you are on twitter let me know I would like to follow you too. I have also added a twitter feed to the side of the blog.

And yes this is a copied post from the family blog for those that follow both blogs.

Tony Hawk Like Us

This is pretty cool to see Tony Hawk filming and editing his own skate session. Rather than having professionals film and edit. Just the way we would do it.

Ollieing Curb

Since the weather has been getting nicer around here I have been doing a little more skateboarding. I have been learning a few extra tricks beyond the ollie. I have learned to shove it while stationary. Pop shove it on carpet. I have been working on the kick flip also on the carpet and grass. (Although I have yet come close to landing one.)

Yesterday Andrew and I went out to find a nice flat area to skate with curbs and ledges. At first we were just skating the parking lot with Andrew doing some more technical tricks off the ledges. I then decided to try to ollie up the curb, I have had a big issue with the timing of ollieing over objects. I tend to lean back rather than jump my body forward over the board. I knew that ollieing up a curb would force myself to actually do it.

At first I was getting the board up the curb, but I just couldn't commit to landing both feet on the board. I would land with my front foot and back foot off. I would say I was being a bit of a chicken. After many, many failed attempts I finally landed one and rolled away. I was in shock I honestly had to look down and double check my back foot to make sure it was on the board. It was such I good feeling, I really felt like I accomplished something. (Although not big compared to what others do, but definitely progress for someone who just started really skating at the end of last summer.) I wanted to leave at that point you know end on a high note. I decided that I needed to try again and sure enough landed it again. I landed it at least 7 more times, I didn't land 7 straight, but 7 more times out of about 15 attempts. It really felt good knowing I learned how to ollie a curb. Next I need to learning to ollie off the curb rather than just ride off.

Skateboarding is just so much fun, it is scary to try new things cause the concrete doesn't feel good when you hit it, but the rewards of landing tricks overrides the pain of the concrete. I love that I skateboarding is relatively cheap to do. Once you buy the board it is pretty much free to do any where. I am so glad I made the decision to get into skateboarding.
