Mid-day. Throughout this quarantine I have had issues on and off with my VPN network connection for work. Today was particularly slow. I decided to re-arrange my work schedule. Take the middle of the day off, and log back on around 3 pm.
The weather was nice, almost pleasant. About 50 degrees, partly sunny, and a little breezy. At 10:30 I decided to go skate.
There’s an elementary school in my neighborhood that’s been closed due to COVID-19. The parking lot there is where I’ve been going to practice rolling ollies. I went there. I had already ollied over the hi-top shoe, and wanted to work on my consistency and height. I practiced by clearing the box said shoes came in.
After warming up for a few min, I put the box down. To my delight I cleared it in only a handful of tries! What I’d really like is to get my consistency locked in.
After watching some slo-mo videos I started to wonder if I could get more height with a traditional board shape. The board I have is wide with an old school shape, which makes it super fun to carve. I’m wondering though, if more of a nose pocket would help improve my ollie height.
