I’ve decided I hate going to the park when it’s packed. It was so nice today though, and I had some free time around 4 pm.
Not worth it. It was mobbed. COVID-y, and just stressful. I tried dropping in, took a few runs, did a couple frontside kickturns.
I tried some frontside slash grinds but couldn’t keep my focus while dodging all the kids on scooters and judging myself for being the oldest dude at the park that wasn’t a parent.
I was pretty much over it after eating shit on a slash grind attempt and hearing the collective teenage “oooohhh!” Embarrassing, but part of the game.
It was hard to enjoy this skate session, and after 15 min I called it. Gonna stick to mornings on the weekends.
