Post WRU life included a little unplanned vacation from skating. I got sick (tested negative for Covid) and had to take a little time off of my board. Coming back after a couple weeks off was a little rough for a couple days, but things came back around and I've been skating everyday ever since.
I've been messing around with some different board sizes. I hopped on my tiny Decomposed Kevin Harris, messed around with the Life 8.1 and, finally, I've been riding an 8.75 Mini Logo. The Mini Logo is interesting because it has soft-ish bushings that turn enough to be pumpable. I'm probably going to set it up with softer wheels (90a for a starter) and see about mixing some cruising/carving and freestyle together. It brings me back to my childhood. Turning and cruising and spinning 360s about 40 years ago. I want to take my flatland skating in "turnier" direction but don't want to give up the freestyle footwork I've grown to love so much. Ah, the joy of experimenting.
A Side Note:
Sfter thinking a lot about it, I'm dedicating myself more to this blog in the next few months. Look for more posts about what is going on in the skate world (Olympics etc...) and some stuff about my shop sponsor, Groove.
