I can taste my 1,000 ollie goal. It’s within reach and I’m giddy like a little boy. I went to the Newington skatepark around 7 this morning to get 50 ollies closer.
After rolling around the park and pumping through all the cool features, I got to work. Warmed up with 10 standing again, that really helped yesterday, then moved into the rolling ollies.
Before that though, I noticed the sky was up to something cool. Decided to shoot a time-lapse of that instead of more slo-mo ollie clips… I’ve seen plenty of those over the past month.
It was a great session, about half an hour-long, maybe a tad more. I nailed a higher speed ollie too which I’m amped about. During the second half of my march to 50, I started pumping on a roller to gain a bit more speed into the flat section where I was popping them.
I missed a few too, and actually, on one of them, my board flicked up and slammed my shin. The grip tape actually shaved off a chunk of leg-hair, gnarly. All in all though, good stuff. Only 100 to go!
