It decided to rain last night, so I went out to the indoor park. I kinda don't like going there because it's always a zoo of scooter kids. Thankfully there were maybe 4 or 5 other people there. Unfortunately I found that my crash this past weekend on my bike did something to my left leg. It's feeling like someone slugged my upper thigh with a bat. Eh push through and keep skating. I was glad I did, as I landed a nice 360 flip on the hip of the parks pyramid.
Nice. The forward flip is a mystery to me. I do have old school tricks that always get the kids though, Sal flips, late shove its, airwalks, shove it tail grab, one footed ollie variations, etc. And I can still do 360 flips, kick flips, etc. But I usually lose.
Sometimes we'll do a huge game of team skate where you have a partner and go every other person on offense, but on defense the best person at the trick gets to try it.
