: : Wow, thats pretty rad! That bowl looks scary to me. ;-D
: : I've started dropping in on halfpipes that are taller then me now and steeper in angle. When I go vert, hows the drop in different? Just lean more forward?
: :
: : I've definately taken a liking to curved ramps. When I go down the flat ones, my body wants to move but the ramp doesnt move with it so I go down stiff. Not sure if thats right or not or just I'm used to moving with the curve now.
: That sounds plenty rad,theres nothing like good tranny.If your dropping fairly steep tranny then vert is gonna be like a little free fall on top of that the first time you do it so you wony need to lean forward much more.Just work your way up through steeper ramps and vert will be a very easy progresion.
: Keep smiling,keep rolling and keep us up to date.
: cheers joe

Yes, another foot it might be vert! :-O I'm scared lol. It will be a slow progression cause I'm scared of heights and I dont want to pee in my pants lol. I went to the indoor park and did the whole thing besides the 5 foot spine, the stairs and the 12 foot drop in, flat, from the 2nd floor. WTF? SCARY!!!!! ;-D

Now since its cold, maybe not much bowl for 6 weeks. The ramps are OK but nothing like the bowls now that I got a taste of skatin heaven! I hope the snow goes. I hate cold but I love skating too much I go skating like frosty the snow woman lol.
